Mikaila – The Art Of Letting Go lyrics

Put away the pictures, put away the memories
I put over and over through my tears
I've held them 'til I'm blind, they kept my hope alive
As if somehow that I'd keep you here
Once you believe in a love forevermore
How do you leave it in a drawer

Now here it comes, the hardest part of all
Unchain my heart that's holding on
How do I start to live my life alone
Guess I'm just learning, learning the art of letting go

Try to say it's over, say the word good bye
But each time it catches in my throat
You're still here in me and I can't set you free
So I hold on to what I wanted most
Maybe someday we'll be friends forevermore
Wish I could open up that door

Now here it comes the hardest part of all
Unchain my heart that's holding on
How do I start to live my life alone
Guess I'm just learning, learning the art of letting go

Watching us fade, what can I do
But try to make it through the pain
Of one more day without you

Where do I start to live my life alone
I guess I'm learning, only learning
Learning the art of letting go

    There was a time that we need to choose between two important things in our lives. To choose the man who give meaning to our lives or to let him/her go just to save our future? It is very hard to let someone out of life especially there was already moments that we shared to the one we loved. Sometimes our mind tells us not to be so stupid, but our heart did not listen. But time will come that although we really love that person, we always fight for that relationship, and sometimes we forget our friends just to be with the man we loved. It will come to the point that we need to give time to ourselves. Moving on is the very painful process that needs longer time. Some of our friends can share there concerns/advise but the only thing that can help the process is we ourselves to be strong and always think positive that everything happens has reason.

    This song reminds me of the time that I really begged him not to give up on our relationship for I thought I can never go on and move on if he leaves me. Love, really, is a painful thing. It was the most beautiful thing that ever haapened in my life and I know even if I find another love in this lifetime, ill never find the same happiness I've had with my 1st boyfriend. That's why when I learned bout this song and listened to it, I cried coz I see myself as the persona of this song.

    Sometimes the only way to show the person that you love him is to let him go... because it is the only thing that would make him happy. And loving someone means only wishing him the happiness that he truly deserves. Letting go is just another way of saying that you will always love him and you wish him happiness. And that leaves you how to handle the loss of that person who you want to spend your life with. Acceptance is a way to move on with your life. You may feel the hurt from time to time, but always remember, God empties your hand so that you will have space to accept the gift He will give you.

    This song is one of my favorite. From the time my boyfriend left me. Hehehe. Mahirap talaga sa una mag let go. Lalo na pag andon pa ung feelings. Di naman ibig sabihin na pag naglet go kakalimutan mo na lahat kumbaga need mo nalang talaga mag move-on lalo nat alam mong wala na talagang magagawa para magwork ang isang relasyon. Hehehe. It takes a long time bago mo magawa mong maglet go. It takes time. Letting go. The hardest thing to do. But you need to.

    Change only happens when the pain of holding on is greater than the fear of letting go. And our trials make us stronger in mind, heart and soul and with this strength we learn to make better choices, to love with more depth and see beyond our own pain. Dats life :( even though it hurts a lot. We need to let them go especially if they don't want us to be there partner. It is so painful. T. T
