She Canít Let Go...

Whatever happened, to the little girl in her?
Whenever she smiled at me, my heart began to stir
I knew that she was happy, by the way her eyes would glow
But she hid her secrets deep inside, so afraid to let them show.

As we both got close, I just fell in love with her
I could see the little girl at times, but I could tell she wasnít sure
She knew she had to face it, and she had to let me know
She was just hurting deep inside, and she said she canít let go.

She canít let go, (she canít let go)
When her fears are starting to show
She wonders if sheís holding on
Or if itís holding on to her
When I ask why she cries
Her tears canít tell me why
She tells me what I need to know
Itís because she canít let go.

Whatever happened, to the little smile she had?
Whenever my girl talked to me, my heart was beating fast
She knew she had to face me, and tell me what I must know
She was still hurting deep inside, and she said she canít let go.

She canít let go, (she canít let go)
When her past is starting to show
She wonders if sheís holding on
Or if itís holding on to her
When I ask why she cries
Her tears donít tell me why
She tells me that she doesnít know
Itís because she canít let go.

Whatever happened, to the sadness she once felt?
Now whenever she holds me, my heart begins to melt
She says she canít replace me, as our love begins to grow
She knows I love her deep inside, and now she canít let go.

She canít let go, (she canít let go)
When our love is starting to show
She wonders if sheís holding me
Or if Iím holding on to her
When I ask why she cries
Her tears fill up her eyes
She says, "I love you", pulls me close...
...and she says she can't let go.
