Put away the pictures.
Put away the memories.
I put over and over
Through my tears
I’ve held them till I’m blind
They kept my hope alive
As if somehow that I’d keep you here
Once you believed in a love forever more?
How do you leave it in a drawer?

Now here it comes, the hardest part of all
Unchain my heart that’s holding on
How do I start to live my life alone?
Guess I’m just learning,
Learning the art of letting go.

Try to say it’s over
Say the word goodbye.
But each time it catches in my throat
Your still here in me
And I can’t set you free
So I hold on to what I wanted most
Maybe someday we’ll be friend’s forever more
Wish I could open up that door

Now here it comes, the hardest part of all
Unchain my heart that’s holding on
How do I start to live my life alone?
Guess I’m just learning,
Learning the art of letting go

Watching us fade
What can I do?
But try to make it through
the pain of one more day
Without you

Where do I start, to live my life alone?
I guess I’m learning, only learning,
Learning the art of letting go.

Of all the things I’ve ever done
Finding you will prove to be the most important one
I would never trade the tears
the conversations no one hears
the learning how to walk before we run

Of all the kites I ever flew
Most came tumbling down
except the one I sent up with you
I dont wanna change a thing
break the spell or cut the string
when every wish I make is coming true with you

Sometimes I forget to say how much I love you
Purposely I bet cause I’m so busy thinking of you
So in this world of odds and ends
I’d rather have a part of you than all of my so-called friends

You have taught me how to feel
What is false and what is real
of all the things I ever wanna do
I think I’ll start and end with loving you

You have taught me how to feel
What is false and what is real
of all the things I ever wanna do
I think I’ll start and end with loving you
