This is actually about letting go...just a work in progress.

Šluna simone

Absence makes the heart grow fonder
And yet, our intuitions wander
Fastened to the all time low
Surrendering to undertow

Your soul and self should matter more
And if it's at a low
Just remember
You deserve much better
So if you love her, let her go.

Loneliness is getting stronger
Connection tears and so we falter
If we learned how to let go
We'd know freedom and tie it closed

Your soul and self should matter more
And if it's at a low
Just remember
You deserve much better
So if you love her, let her go.

Love is selfless
Love is kind
Just surrender
Open your mind
Learn to breathe the open air
Surrender cause the truth is there.

Your soul and self should matter more
And if it's at a low
Just remember
You deserve much better
So if you love her, let her go.

Your soul and self should matter more
And if it's at a low
Just remember
You deserve much better
So if you love her, let her go.

This looks very singable. Good Structure.

For some reason a Line appeals to me, "If you love ME, let her go."

That introduces conflict, a Singer-Character speaking to a Love-Interest Character, about The-Other-Woman Character.


There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? www.garyeandrews.com

Been hearing this song "It'll be alright"...Not sure why they named the tune it will be alright. IMO it should have been Let Her Go. Damn it's a great song...

And my friend said
"I know you love her, but it's over, mate
It doesn't matter, put the phone away
It's never easy to walk away, let her go
It'll be okay
It's gonna hurt for a bit of time
So bottoms up, let's forget tonight
You'll find another and you'll be just fine
Let her go"



...As a read, the lines seem to conflict a little with "IF YOU LOVE HER, LET HER GO"....

I mean why are we letting her go because we love her? Is she better without you. Or just as it seems by the lyric dude is heartbroken. If the man is heartbroken, the words IF YOU LOVE HER, don't quite serve.

Don't know if this makes sense, but what I'm saying is he is "valient" to love her & let her go...

Was she married? was he married? why let her go? Is he no good for her, she no good for him? Tighten the story and this will fall into place

Your theme the way you have started the write seems to be centered more on what is better for him, than her as the title implies "IF YOU LOVE HER-----LET HER GO"....

That's all I got. BTW, DISCLAIMER: For me personally just reading a lyric is not my strong point. In context of the soundwaves and emotion is my powerspot, so keep or sweep...I only read this one because of the TITLE....
