This boy wants to play, there's no time left today
It's a shame cause he has to go home
This boy's got to work, got to sweat just to pay what he gets to get left all alone
But let's step outside, let's go for a ride just for awhile
No we won't get caught, well that's what I thought until we cried

I'm still here, but it hasn't been easy
I'm sure that you had your reasons
I'm scared if all this in motion
For years I've been holding you down
For years I've been holding you down

This girl tries her best everyday, but it's all gone to waste cause there's no one around
This girl she can draw, she can paint
Likes to dance, she can skate, now she don't make a sound
We'll play in the park, dinner's too dark for us to see
Well we'll make our way home, with mud on our clothes, she won't be pleased

I'm still here, but it hasn't been easy
I'm sure that you had your reasons
I'm scared if all this in motion
For years I've been holding you down

And I'd love to forgive and forget
So I tried to put all this behind us
Just know that my arms are wide open
The older I get the more that I know
Well it's time to let this go

I got to let it go, I got to let it go
I got to let it go, I got to let it go

I'm still here, but it hasn't been easy
I'm sure that you had your reasons
I'm scared if all this in motion
For years I've been holding you down

And I'd love to forgive and forget
So I tried to put all this behind us
Just know that my arms are wide open
The older I get the more that I know

And I'd love to forgive and forget
So I tried to put all this behind us
Just know that my arms are wide open
The older I get the more that I know
Well it's time to let this go
