Lately we’ve been acting like strangers

We never show our feelings

Or say the things we mean

It’s hard to admit

But maybe it’s time to quit pretending

cause we both know


it’s better letting go

there’s no point hanging on

to what used to be

why can’t we see

it’s better letting go


It’s crazy to sit here in silence

Counting off the seconds

The beating of our hearts

When there’s no more to give

There’s no easy way to live together

We both know


It’s better letting go

It’s time to walk away

And start again

This makes no sense

It’s better letting go


No matter how we fake it

This love has faded

The feeling has gone

It’s time to move on

It’s no good looking back

It hurts but we both know it baby


It’s better letting go

There’s no point hanging on

To what used to be

Why can’t we see

It’s better letting go


It’s better letting go

It’s time to walk away

And start again

This makes no sense

It’s better letting go
