Well you only need the light when it's burning low 
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow 
Only know you love her when you let her go 
 
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low 
Only hate the road when you’re missin' home 
Only know you love her when you let her go 
And you let her go 
 
Staring at the bottom of your glass 
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last 
But dreams come slow and they go so fast 
 
You see her when you close your eyes 
Maybe one day you'll understand why 
Everything you touch surely dies 
 
But you only need the light when it's burning low 
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow 
Only know you love her when you let her go 
 
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low 
Only hate the road when you're missin' home 
Only know you love her when you let her go 
 
Staring at the ceiling in the dark 
Same old empty feeling in your heart 
'Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast 
 
Well you see her when you fall asleep 
But never to touch and never to keep 
'Cause you loved her too much 
And you dived too deep 
 
Well you only need the light when it's burning low 
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow 
Only know you love her when you let her go 
 
And you let her go (oh, oh, ooh, oh no) 
And you let her go (oh, oh, ooh, oh no) 
Will you let her go? 
 
'Cause you only need the light when it's burning low 
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow 
Only know you love her when you let her go 
 
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low 
Only hate the road when you're missin' home 
Only know you love her when you let her go 
 
And you let her go
