DON'T YOU DARE LET GO

FALLEN
DON’T YOU DARE LET GO

Lyrics

DON’T YOU DARE LET GO

She was the one who broke my heart
But I am the fool who walked away
On that day, so long ago
She wasn’t proud of what she’d done
But I was too weak for honesty
On that day, so long ago
We had the kind of love that ages like fine wine
If you have a love like that
Then fight to hold the line
Don’t let go
Oh no, son
Don’t you dare let go
Don’t let go

They had been married five good years
And weathered every single storm
Sent their way, ‘til that day
Standing angry, toe-to-toe
Hurtful words and wounded pride
In their way, on that day
Never thinking in that moment love could die
Feeling nothing when you touch
So you decide to let go
I know how
You feel yourself let go
You just let go

They had forgotten I was there
So I spoke a gentle word
To my son, on that day
He turned with anger in his eyes
But I knew the deepest fear inside
Of my son, on that day
He let me lead him from the room so she could cry
And I knew the time had come
To tell him of the time
I let go, oh Lord how,
How I just let go
I just let go

I said, “She was the one who broke my heart
But I am the fool who walked away
On that day, so long ago
She wasn’t proud of what she’d done
But your mother never tried to hide
What’d gone on, and on that day
She took a chance that I was worthy of her love
If you have a woman who would offer you as much
Don’t let go
Oh no, son
Don’t you dare let go
Don’t let go”
