Holding on to a love that has ended

I Can't Set You Free

by Brett Matthew West

I Can't Set You Free

We said goodbye again last night
To the sound of a slamming door
Words were said, and teardrops fell
Like a thousand times before

All alone at a table for two
Just me and your memory
I know that I should let you go
But I can't set you free

Looking back at where we've been
And slowly going out of my mind
Wanting you all the while
And knowing love's not blind

Every day that passes by
You mean more than I can say
I had you here close to me
But that was yesterday

Go on and leave me here alone
You do it all the time
I can't believe you went away
And left my love behind

Memories of days gone by
Remind me that you're gone
Much too late I understand
What I've known all along

There ain't no way we can work this out
And start our love anew
I played around so many times
Now I'm losing you

That new man that you found
Sure takes up all your time
He don't know I need you here
And that you should be mine

We said goodbye again last night
To the sound of a slamming door
Words were said, and teardrops fell
Like a thousand times before

All alone at a table for two
Just me and your memory
I know that I should let you go
But I can't set you free
