Let Her Go

I see your tired and empty eyes and the pain of a life that's broken
Little darling though everybody tries, no the door it will never open

Let her go, let her go
Set her free and let her go
Her mother whispers soft and low
Just set her free and let her go

Just a little flower that's wilting in the cruel haze of fate and of time's survival
Just a little girl who has no more time to wait for mysteries cool revival


And so we shout our anger and we shout our shame but we're sure no-one will hear us
And so we take the burden and we take the blame and hope she's always near us
