A few pictures, two tickets, from a trip we took last year,
A handful of memories, some still seem clear,
A few regrets, a couple of melodies, that remind me of you,
I could say that I won't miss this, but that wouldn't be the truth,
There's no one here to blame, and this is the only way,
There's nothing left for us, to say

It's time to let you go, it's what we have to do,
It's time to give this up, I think that we both knew,
There's nothing left to say, there's nothing left to prove,
And now it's time to turn and walk away from,
What's left of me and you,
What's left of me and you

Box of letters, that old t-shirt, still brings me back to you,
A few more hours in the day, not sure what I should do,
There's no one here to blame, and this is the only way,
There's nothing left for us to say

It's time to let you go, it's what we have to do,
It's time to give this up, I think that we both knew,
There's nothing left to say, there's nothing left to prove,
And now it's time to turn and walk away from,
What's left of me and you

You were the best thing I'll ever give up,
And it's hard to see the truth,
When you think you're still in love,
The only way to get on with my life,
Is to say goodbye, so goodbye

It's time to let you go, it's what we have to do,
It's time to give this up, I think that we both knew,
There's nothing left to say and nothing left to prove,
And now it's time to turn and walk away from,
What's left of me and you,
What's left of me and you

A few pictures, two tickets,
From a trip we took last year,
A handful of memories,
Some still seem clear

    I think this is about a relationship that is failing/has failed. So the only thing left to do is walk away, "there's no one here to blame, and this is the only way. There's nothing left for us to say. "
    He still has memories of her; "pictures. ", "two tickets. ", "letters. ", "t-shirt. " and even though it wasn't either of their faults the relationship failed, he misses her.
    "it's hard to see the truth, when you think you're still in love. "; maybe he was naive, and couldn't see that their relationship with this person wasn't working out the way he planned. Or they planned. And she's gone, and of course he misses her. But he understands she isn't coming back. - "the only way to get on with my life, is to say goodbye. "
