Giving You Up

Posted: May 8, 2003

Lyrics

From the first time that I saw you standing there
I knew that you must be an angel sent to me from up above
You are everything I’ve prayed for all the nights I’ve spent alone
Asking God to send me someone I could love

I wish that someday soon
You’d understand my love for you

But I’m giving you up
Setting you free
Hoping someday you’d come back to me
I’m letting go, but I thought you should know
You can’t see the credits before the start of the show
I’m giving you up — setting you free
Hoping someday you’d come back to me
I’m letting go — need some time to grow
I can’t cross your path until I walk my road

Well, I heard it from a wise man long ago
He said to me, “Son, if you really love something, you gotta’ let it go
Then sit back and wait, and if she comes back on her own she’s yours
But if she’s gone for good, she was never yours at all”

I remember the night we danced
Did you know I took this chance?

By giving you up — setting you free
Hoping someday you’d come back to me
I’m letting go, so I thought you should know
I’ve been waiting for hours for you out in the cold.
I’m giving you up — setting you free
Praying to God you’d come back to me
I’m letting go — you’re on your own
Still my heart’s going with you — you’re not alone

Saw my world come crashing down the day my best friend sat me down
And said you didn’t care for me how I care for you
And I had to laugh despite myself the night I got a phone call
From that same guy telling me he loved you too
My heart’s in my throat — it’s true
How could this happen? You love him too?
So I’m giving you up — setting you free
Nothing more to say that would get you love me
I’m letting go — you’re on your own
No longer will I stand in the way of your love
I’m giving you up — setting you free
Praying to God you’d come back to me
I’m letting go, you’re on your own
Maybe I’m better off just being alone
