How do you tell someone you're letting go?
I wish that I could tell you
But you're askin' me things that I don't know
I wish that I could tell you

Words that I would say
Sound as empty as the way you feel inside
While the silence in between
Tells me everything that you deny

I don't know how to help you
I wish that I could tell you
How to tell me goodbye

I don't know how you leave it all behind
I wish that I could tell you
Is it true a heart heals itself with time
I wish that I could tell you

How do you choose?
Do you hurt 'em with the truth or with a lie?
Where do you go to find the courage
You know I could never find?

I don't know how to help you
I wish that I could tell you
How to tell me goodbye

Where do you turn, where do you go?
When you've finally reached the end of the road?
How do you say it, I just don't know
When it comes to leaving you're on your own

How do you tell someone you're letting go?
I wish that I could tell you
Oh, wish that I could tell you
