Overview

Lyrics

2003 Version

You've got to let me go
Pack my things and go on my own
I can not stay with you
I have things to do all alone

You're bringing me down
You're bringing me down
You've got to let go of me
You've got to let go of me
You've got to let go of me

I can not hesitate
Don't want to be late anymore
Soon you will find a friend
Who will try to mend what I tore

You've got to let go of me
You've got to let go of me
You've got to let go of me
You've got to let go of me
You've got to let go of me
You've got to let go of me
You're bringing me down
You're bringing me down

2004 Version

You've got to let me go
Pack my things and go on my own
I can not stay with you
I have things to do on my own

You're bringing me down
You're bringing me down
You've got to let go of me
You've got to let go of me
You've got to let go of me

I wasn't made for you
You weren't made for me
Tell me you love me
Tell me you love me
Say that you want to die

I can not hesitate
Don't want to be late anymore
Soon you will find a friend
Who will try to mend what I tore

You've got to let me go
Pack my things and go
I can't stay with you
I've got things to do
Soon you'll find a friend
Who will try to mend
What I tore to shreds
In the bitter end

I wasn't made for you
You weren't made for me
Tell me you love me
Tell me you love me
Say that you're going to cry

I wasn't made for you
I wasn't made for you
Tell me you love me
Tell me you love me
Say that you're going to die
Gonna die
