2. “All I Want” by Kodaline

3. “Lover’s Eyes” by Mumford And Sons

There is no drink or drug I’ve tried, to rid the curse of these lover’s eyes. I feel numb beneath her tongue. Her strength just makes me feel less strong. But do not ask the price I pay
I must live with my quiet rage. Tame the ghosts in my head, that run wild and wish me dead.

6. “Don’t You Remember?” by Adele

7. “Open Your Eyes” by John Legend

How fickle my heart and how woozy my eyes, I struggle to find any truth in your lies. And now my heart stumbles on things I don’t know. My weakness I feel I must finally show.

10. “I’m Not Calling You A Liar” by Florence And The Machine

I’m not calling you a liar, just don’t lie to me. I’m not calling you a thief, just don’t steal from me. I’m not calling you a ghost, just stop haunting me. And I love you so much, I’m gonna let you kill me.

11. “Dear River” by Kina Grannis

Holding on dear river to my skin. Whispering the places you have been. And I look back upstream. Everybody knows the river comes. The river goes but you stopped here, you stopped here for me. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather

Let go now
