Well you're the closest thing I have
To bring up in a conversation
About a love that didn't last
But I could never call you mine
Cause I could never call myself yours
And if we were really meant to be
Well then we just defied destiny
Its not that our love died
Just never really bloomed

Well I can't let go
No, I can't let go of you
Youre holding me back without even trying to.
I can't let go
I can't move on from the past
Without lifting a finger you're holding me back.

And then we saw our paths diverge
And I guess I felt ok about it.
Until you got with another man,
And then I couldn't understand
Why it bothered me so.
How we didn't die we just
Never had a chance to grow.

I can't let go
No, I can't let go of you
Youre holding me back without even trying to.
I can't let go
I can't move on from the past.
Without lifting a finger you're holding me back.

And it might not make much sense
To you or any of my friends
Though somehow still you affect the
Things I do.
And you can't lose what you never had
I don't understand why I feel sad
Every time I see you out with someone new.

I can't let go
No, I can't let go
No, I can't let go of you.

I can't let go
No, I can't let go of you
Youre holding me back without even trying to.
I can't let go
I can't move on from the past
Without lifting a finger you're holding me back.

I can't let go
No, I can't let go of you
Youre holding me back without even trying to.
I can't let go
I can't move on from the past.

    This is so a relationship I had with someone who gave me a day of feeling like I was living the best, more romantic movie ever! He was gentleman, he was sweet, funny, and we 'fell' in love - he asked me to marry him, we talked about a 'life' together and then I had to literally leave the very next day. There were a few letters and phone calls but time/distance made it impossible. I had pictures tho. And then 18. 5 years later we found each other on fb - but life had happened. We became friends tho. And last week he died. Ours truly was a love that never got a chance to grow but I'm so glad we were friends!
