Christopher Martin - Let Her Go

Some point in time a man just have to be a man, yuh naw mean?
Face up to your emotions
And really check fi a woman, mek she know you check fi her
Nuh matter if yuh friend dem a go laugh
Or dem a go seh yuh whipped or whatever
At the end of the day
You're the only one who's gonna be lonely, ya understand?

'Cause you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Wo-oh-oh-oh-ooh

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go
Wo-oh-oh-oh-ooh and you let her go

(How could you, how could you let her go..)
(Why did you let her go?)

Staring at an empty glass
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast

You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you'll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies, oh, oh

But you only need the light when it's burning low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go-oh-oh-ooh

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go-oh-oh-ooh

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
Love comes slow and it goes so fast, oh baby

Yeah, you see her when you go to sleep
Never to touch and never to keep
'Cause you miss her so much
And you dived too deep, ho yes

'Cause you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
You let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go
YOu let her go

And you let her go (oh, oh, ooh, oh oh)
And you let her go (oh, oh, ooh, oh oh)
And you let her go (oh, oh, ooh, oh oh)
Why did you, you let her go, you let her go..

Oh, you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go, oh yeah

Oh, you only need the light when it's burning low
You only miss the sun when it starts to snow
You only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her, you love her, you love her
When you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go

Oh, yeah
And you let her go
