Letting You Go

Wasn't I brushing the hair from your face? Wasn't I just drying your tears and singing you sweet dreams at night? Seems like it was just yesterday Suddenly you're 17 and it's just 18 months 'til goodbye I'd rather deny it God knows I'd try if I could keep you here at home, but I know Loving you is holding you And lifting you up And planting the seeds and then watching you grow Even though it's hard to do It's letting you fall And giving you wings so you fly on your own 'Cause part of loving you is letting you go All of your life I've prepared you to leave Now that little boy's all grown up and it's too late for changing my mind But nobody ever warned me That the years go too fast and there's just no pressing rewind 'Cause time is a liar Wish I could set the clock on fire, turn it back to yesterday Oh, but it just keeps ticking away Loving you is holding you And lifting you up And planting the seeds and then watching you grow, oh oh Even though it's hard to do It's letting you fall And giving you wings so you fly on your own Part of loving you is letting you go No matter how I wanna make you stay You were also born to fly away Loving you is holding you And lifting you up And planting the seeds and then watching you grow, oh oh oh oh Even though it's hard to do It's letting you fall And giving you wings so you fly on your own Part of loving you is letting you go Letting you go, oh oh
