I'll Let You Go Submit Correct Lyrics

We drove all night and half the next day
Up through the mountains to the open space
Got through registration and searched for my dorm
I was so thankful he'd been there before

He carried my boxes and helped me unpack
Told old college stories until I laughed
But the tears started falling as we ran out of time
And I did all I could to avoid his goodbye

He said, "I wish I could stay here
It's hard on me too
But I know that there's so much
That you've got to do"

"So I'll let you go, you can stop crying
Oh it's not the end of the world
Girl you know you're gonna be fine
Give me a hug and let me see you smile
You know that I'll see you in a little while
So I'll let you go"

I made it through school and made some big plans
Yeah, I chased my dreams in some far away land
But everything changed when I got the call
And chasing those dreams meant nothing at all

I told him, "I'm gonna stay here
And take care of you"
He said, "That's the last thing
That I'd let you do"

"But I'll let you go, you can stop crying
Oh it's not the end of the world
Girl you know I'm gonna be fine
Give me a hug and let me see you smile
You know that I'll see you in a little while
So I'll let you go"

With the wings that he gave me I learned how to fly
One day they brought me back to be by his side
I knew he was holding on for me but I couldn't say the words
The ones that would set him free, the last thing I heard

He said
"I'll let you go, I'll let you go
I'll let you go, I'll let you go"
