Here we go again
'Round and 'round again
Gettin' nowhere fast
It's the same old thing

One more final scene
Never meant to last
Who'll be the first one who's leaving
Who'll be the last one to cry

Something just keeps me believing
In our love tonight

[Chorus]
I can't seem to say goodbye
Though I've tried a million times
The more I learn, the less I know
About the art of letting go

So we take our time
And we make our moves
Oh, so carefully
Old ways seem so safe
Habits hard to break
When you're here with me

I don't know how hard to hold you
No easy way to be free
Something just keeps me believing
That we're meant to be

[Chorus]

For we all feel
And we all know
It's not easy
Letting go

[Chorus]

We got beyond letting go
(We got beyond letting go)
You gotta let go
You gotta let go
Yeah, yeah
