I'm sorry for any pain I've caused
I'm sorry I've caused you to have a loss
I'm writing this to let you know
The reasons why I let you go

You probably don't want to hear me out
But I know you wanna know the breakup was about
Don't deny, you wanna know
The reasons I let you go

1st Chorus:
You don't open up to me
The way you should, which is freely
You hardly speak an ungrudging word to me
This is why I let you go
You're always down and out
Don't know what a smile is about
You're too depressed, no doubt
This is why I let you go
Rare compliments to I hear
No appreciation, just a leer
Is that what I get for being near?
This is why I let you go

I'm not perfect, nor claim to be
But too much of your antics has got me wantin' to be free
Hope you're startin' to realize and know
The reasons why I let you go

Don't make these mistakes again
And you just might have yourself another girlfriend
I'm doin' you a favor, lettin' you know
The reasons why I let you go

2nd Chorus:
You hardly call, and when you do
It's as quiet as an empty zoo
Talking.you seem unable to
This is why I let you go
We have nothin' in common, I've come to realize
Not to mention, you told me lies
Which were as annoying as buzzing flies
This is why I let you go
You don't really understand me
Who I am, or come to be
I'm really sorry that you couldn't see
This is why I let you go

You hurt me before
Than hurt me again
You ended it once
Now it's my turn to let it end

I don't blame you, don't blame me
I don't really blame anything
It's over and done, finally
Finally, I'm free

3rd Chorus:
Now, I hope you see
How this has come to be
Why I have to just be me
Why I let you go
Whether it was lust of love
What we had is like a dove
It's flown away, far above
I've let it go
So baby, now you know
This is all to show
You what I already realize and know
The reasons why I let you go
