I can't find a reason to let go
Even though you've found a new love
And she's what your dreams are made of
I can find a reason to hang on
What went wrong can be forgiven
Without you it ain't worth living alone

Sometimes I wake up crying at night
And sometimes I scream out your name
What right does she have to take you away
When for so long you were mine

I took out all the pictures of
Our wedding day
It was a time of love and laughter
Happy ever after
But even those old pictures have
Begun to fade
Please tell me she's not real
And that you're really coming home to stay

Sometimes I wake up crying at night
And sometimes I scream out your name
What right does she have to take your heart away
When for so long you were mine

I can give you two good reasons
To show you love's not blind
He's two and she's four and you know
They adore you
So how can I tell them you've changed
Your mind

Sometimes I wake up crying at night
And sometimes I scream out your name
What right does she have to take your heart away
When for so long you were mine
I remember when you were mine

    Love is a four letter word that is very strong. It can easely break but it takes two true lovers to get through. And im glad i have a man who is willing to do and help through our trouble and trials. This song helps me in many ways. Love wisely

    Carmina & eLmer -> I will always treasure the day that I met you..I thought love is just an illusion,a game,a betrayal..But when I found you,every thing turned out to be so different! I will love you forever and thank you so much CaRm_el Q.

    My meaning to this song is a women who is so deeply in love with this guy and he leave and she expressing her love through this song. She cant let go because she loves him. I know id be the same way because im in love. This song is the best song ever. I cry late at night too and i look back at the dixie chicks and think. Their my inspiration. I listen to this song when im depressed or when i feel lonely or down.
