lyrics

I don’t know how I’m going to get through this
I only know it’s not so bad
The minutes move and friends they come and go
Straight from the future to the past

It’s dead quiet in the telephone
And all the songs are ringing wrong
The times that seemed so neverending then
They didn’t hang around too long

Babe, I’m letting go
Ain’t it good to know
I won’t hang around
Oh no not anymore

I held you close, as close as close can be
Against the wet West Coast breeze
You looked at me and smiled so wearily
It’s like you knew you were getting free

And all the fireworks up in that July sky
And all the things that we would try
You held me close, as close as close can be
I guess you knew it was goodbye

Babe I’m letting go
Ain’t it good to know
I won’t hang around
Oh no not no more

The airplane wind is moaning lonesome blues
Up where our secrets used to hide
I thought I’d make you queen of everything
Turns out I’d nothing to provide

Babe I’m letting go… (&c.)
