Let Her Go Lyrics

Well you only need the light when
it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to
snow
Only know you love her when you let
her go
Only know you've been high when
you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're
missing home
Only know you love her when you let
her go
And you let her go

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you'll make a dream
last
But dreams come slow and they go so
fast
You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you'll understand why
Everything you touch, surely dies

But you only need the light when it's
burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to
snow
Only know you love her when you let
her go
Only know you've been high when
you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're
missing home
Only know you love her when you let
her go

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
'Cause love comes slow and it goes so
fast
Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
'Cause you loved her too much and you
dive too deep

Well you only need the light when
it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to
snow
Only know you love her when you let
her go
Only know you've been high when
you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're
missing home
Only know you love her when you let
her go
And you let her go
Oh oh oh no
And you let her go
Oh oh oh no
Well you let her go

'Cause you only need the light when
it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to
snow
Only know you love her when you let
her go
Only know you've been high when
you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're
missing home
Only know you love her when you let
her go

'Cause you only need the light when
it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to
snow
Only know you love her when you let
her go
Only know you've been high when
you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're
missing home
Only know you love her when you let
her go
And you let her go

you don't realize how much you really love something or someone until they're gone. Because when they're always there you get comfortable with them and don't think about what it would be like when they're not there anymore

They sound a lot like Cat Stevens when Cat Stevens started singing. They sound really awesome. Where are they from? I love this song.

I actually went through a personal experience like this. About 2 years ago I got envolved with The Seeing Eye, helping my neighbor raise a puppy for the blind. It was a female yellow lab named Heart. I bonded with her alot but I really didn't think about that at one point, I would have to give her up. But on New Years Eve 2012 that day came. I had to say goodbye. I didn't want to, but I had to. I was crushed. It just wasn't the same without her. I felt like a piece to my puzzle was missing. That dog was literally my best friend. I really didn't have alot of friends at that point. And any I did have, had some way betrayed me. After I said goodbye, I was silent. I wouln't talk to anyone about that dog for a solid month. But fortunatly, 10 mons ago she flunked out of the program right before graduation. My parents secretly adopted her because they saw how much that dog meant to me and how attatched to her I was. When I saw that dog get out of the van and bolt for me, I burst into tears. And I learned to cherish the moments I have with her, and when i'm not with her to look forward to seeing her.

Can't believe you don't know who Cat Stevens is. Worlds gone crazy. Although I agree the voice is similar, I wouldn't say it's the same. Cat Stevens just sings about different stuff; it's softer. Don't really like this song - but what can you do in the ever changing world of music?

The song is saying hold onto what you have because it wont be there forever. Like the sun will always go down. Or the lights will go out. It also is saying to not take things for granted, because they won't always be there when you need them

What this song means is that when u have something or someone you're so comfortable that you don't realize that when they are gone it would be harder and then when it's gone you don't feel comfortable like you used to when they were there

Sometimes in your life, you couldn't see the genuine beauty of a thing,
the genuine purpose and the genuine value of it. How important and how you need it most. You let that thing go away and gone as time pass by at the end you'll find out how wrong your decision was. You'll realized how u need it most, cause you've had learned how to LOVE it... You love him/her before but doesn't realizing it, you'll only find out when you 'Let her/him go'...

It is a love song from a friend's experience or else the lyrics would be "I Let Her Go". But my meaning is that this friend tried really hard to keep her but he couldn't do it

this song means so much to me because it helped me realize that there are other things in the world than love or relationships. you just have to look ahead and focus on what you have now because you will have to let them go one day or another.

If you have something you do not realise you have it but you only know how much you love it if its gone
