Joe Cocker

John Robert "Joe" Cocker OBE (born 20 May 1944) is an English rock and blues singer, who came to popularity in the 1960s, and is known for his gritty voice, his idiosyncratic arm movements while performing, and his cover versions of popular songs, particularly those of the Beatles. more »

You can look away
But you can't disguise 
The light that shines so brightly 
Is gone from your eyes

It wasn't my mistake 
It's nothing you did wrong  Sometimes learning to surrender 
Is the same as being strong

[Chorus:]
 Letting go
 Letting go
The hardest part is knowing 
That I'll miss you so
I'd like to wish you well
Oh but it hurts you know
 Sometimes doing what is right  Means letting go

Yeah
As we walk away
 Leaving it all behind 
I hope we will be satisfied 
With what we'll find
And if it's not all you want
I hope it's good enough 
To make it worth 
The precious things
We're giving up

[Chorus]

 Sometimes late at night 
I can't believe the things I hear
An angel comes to me
And whispers in my ears
 Saying there's a time to read
And a time of the soul
A time for holding on
And a time
Just for

[Chorus]

I'd like to wish you well
Oh but it hurts you know
 Sometimes doing what is right  Means letting go
Oh
