LyricsEdit

Veronica:
They say nothing lasts forever
Well, I wish that that were true
'Cause this aching in my heart won't go away

They sing, "Everything must change",
They say that time will see you through
Well, I've listened and I've waited for that day

But I wake up with this anger
And the pain won't let me be
And the smile I share
Is only there for show

If I hang on to this heartache
Then my soul will not be free
So I keep trying
But I just cannot let go

I can't let go
I need it to remind me
I can't let go
Or I'll just repeat the past

And though your arms are saying yes
I feel my heart keep saying no
I want to love you
But I can't let go

I have lived through bad beginnings
And I've seen unhappy ends
So I close the book
Before the story starts

I'm just a witness to my lifetime
And I'm a stranger to my friends
I'm the trafficker
Of broke and damaged hearts

Now you ask me to start over
But it's easier said than done
And the memories are strong when they arise

And when heartache comes a-callin'
I don't even try to run
'Cause it's all that makes me know that I'm alive

I can't let go
I need it to remind me
I can't let go
Or I'll just repeat the past

And though your arms are saying yes
I feel my heart keep saying no
I want to love you
I want to love you
Oh, I want to love you
But I can't let go

No, I can't let go
Won't you help me?
Help me to let go
