Letting Go

Letting go of a dream
You dream day and night

Changing ways
When your ways are no longer right

Holding back
Just as hard as chasing a star
And true love can be love from afar

Letting go, turning 'round, and walking away
From the face that you long to face every day

May not make sense right now
But in time it will
For true love knows just when to stand still

Well, you can't hold a river
Or fly like an eagle
Or capture the wind rolling by

And the love that you hold out
Is not worth the taking
And if you are wise
Then you won't even try

Letting go, saying no
Is so hard to do
Think of what's best for her
Not what's best for you

And if you can, you've found love
Forever you know
It's only your hands
Letting go

And you can't hold a river
Or fly like an eagle
Or capture the wind rolling by

And the love that you hold out
Is not worth the taking
And if you are wise
Then you won't even try

Letting go, saying no
Is so hard to do
Think of what's best for her
Not what's best for you

And if you can, you've found love
Forever you know
'Cause it's only your hands
Letting go

It's only your hands
Letting go

Music John Barry
Lyrics Don Black
Performed by Glenn Campbell
