How do you tell someone you're letting go
I wish that I could tell you
But you're asking me things that I don't know
I wish that I could tell you
The words that I would say
Sound as empty as the way you feel inside
While the silence in between
Tells me everything that you deny
I don't know how to help you
I wish that I could tell you
How to tell me goodbye

I don't know how you leave it all behind
I wish that I could tell you
Is it true a heart heals itself with time
I wish that I could tell you
How do you choose
Do you hurt 'em with the truth or with a lie
Where do you go to find the courage
You know I could never find
I don't know how to help you
I wish that I could tell you
How to tell me goodbye

Where do you turn, where do you go
When you've finally reached the end of the road
How do you say it I just don't know
When it comes to leaving you're on your own

How do you tell someone you're letting go
I wish that I could tell you
I wish that I could tell you
