The hand is cold that once held mine
I can't believe you've really left this world behind
I can wait and I can hope I'll get over this in time

It takes time to learn when someone's gone for good
They're not comin' back like you wish they would
In the empty hours when you miss them so
Then it's time to learn to let them go

Your last hours we never knew
We never had a chance to say goodbye to you
Words unsaid and things undone
We'd just begun and now we'll never see them through

It takes time to learn when someone's gone for good
They're not comin' back like you wish they would
In the empty hours when you miss them so
It takes time to learn to let them go

It takes time to learn that you're gone for good
You're not comin' back like I wish you would
In the empty hours when I miss you so
Then it's time to learn to let you go

The hand is cold that once held mine
