Eddie Kendricks – I'll Have To Let You Go lyrics

I caught a gentle bird, whose wings were bent and broken
One rainy day I saw it fall to earth along my way...
It needed me,
It hurt so desperately

But I began to know...
Though I had loved it so...
I’d have to let it go someday

You came to me like that
Your heart was disappointed
Somebody else - had made you hurt you inside I heard you say…

You could not feel,
You needed time to heal…

But I began to know
Though have I loved you so,
I’d have to let you go someday…

And now you don’t need me anymore
You’re strong and assured

And I can't help but know
Though I have loved you so
I’ll have to let you go
And I can't help but know
Though I have loved you so

I'll have to you go
I'll have to let you go, let you go, let you go, let you go
