Passenger – Let Her Go lyrics

[Intro-Chorus]
Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go


[Verse 1]
Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast

You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you'll understand why

Everything you touch surely dies

[Chorus]
But you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home

Only know you love her when you let her go

[Verse 2]
Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
'Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast

Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
'Cause you loved her too much and you dive too deep


[Chorus]
Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go



[Bridge]
And you let her go
Oh oh oh oooh no
And you let her go
Oh oh oh oooh no
Well you let her go

[Chorus]
'Cause you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow

Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go

[Outro-Chorus]
Because you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

    This song honestly describes my life. It is true that you do lose the ones you love but its how you cope with the loss. You don't know what you have until its gone and out of your reach. You wish you can get it back but it's the past and its not coming back. Your going to miss things no matter what happens, but sometimes you have to let things go and move on, its the meaning of life. You have to learn to cope with your failures, your greatness, and your ups and downs. It's how you keep going in life. You just have to push through it all and see where it goes from theere.

    I really love the message of the song. It gives something substantiated means in my life. I may not be her but I feel like her and I really feel the music as I am listening to its acoustics. To appreciate other on the things they wish to have and let them towards their life give them the freedom to think and make them feel happy for the things they wish to do without the aid of others. Let them be free and give them the way towards the things they wanted to soar. Love is not about pushing people for those thing they don't want to do but to let them be free and be happy for what they wish.

    What is this song all about? All I know is. You'll only know her importance if she's gone. You'll just realize that you love her once that she's now beyond your reach. You'll only know everything and every importance of that person once that you already done something wrong or once that she's out of your life. People nowadays never knew that. So only know you love her when you let her go. And you let her go. :)

    There are things like death and words that you can't ever take back. When you lose somebody that to you love it leaves a huge hole in your heart. He can't deal with the pain of his girl leaving so he drinks it away which just gives him more problems. He didn't know he depended on and loved her so much. When he let her go he realized she was the missing piece in his is life. She was his whole world. Like the artist says you only miss something when you don't have it anymore. Without her gone he never knew her presence was why he was surviving. Watching the music video really explained it well.

    It is based on some one that is gone and that person is missing her so he are she is trying to express his or her feeling to that boy or that girl but its a nice song and it totally about losing someone that you love could be your mother dad gran-parents friends and mostly your girlfriend or boyfriend. It reminds that these no turning back cause life goes on and on.
