Let Her Go

Dougie MacLean

I see your tired and empty eyes
and the pain of a life that's broken
little darling though everybody tries
the door it will never open

Chorus

Let her go, let her go
set her free and let her go
her mother whispers soft and low
just set her free and let her go

just a little flower that's wilting
in the cruel haze of fate and of time's survival
just a little girl who has no more time to wait
for mysteries cool revival

Chorus

let her go, let her go
just set her free and let her go
her mother whispers soft and low
just set her free and please let her go

and so we shout our anger and
we shout our pain
but we're sure no one will hear us
and so we take the burden
and we take the blame
and hope she's always near us

Chorus

let her go, let her go
set her free and let her go
her mother whispers soft and low
just set her free and please let her go

let her go, let her go
set her free and let her go
her mother whispers soft and low
just set her free and let her go
