lyrics

Good morning, says the equinox, as thunder wakes me before my alarm clocks
Burrow into bed deeply as I'm able
Make my coffee all alone, can't stop looking at my telephone
I miss his handwriting in the crossword on the table

There are ghosts in these rooms and it'll be my doom if I meet one face to face
I'm haunted by the echo of his boots down my front stairwell
The doorknob turns and my stomach churns but it's never him returning
I hallucinate the sound of tables, turning

Chorus:
So let me go
Let me go
I've got to go
I've got to go
Just because I have to leave you
Doesn't mean that I don't love you

Seems like everything I had here
One by one just disappeared
You say that once upon a time
I'd crack a smile

That there's proof I used to laugh
But those are memories in old photographs
Things haven't seemed very funny for a while

Chorus:
So let me go
Let me go
I've got to go
I've got to go
I've got to go
I've got to go
Just because I have to leave you
Doesn't mean that I don't love you
