Crystal Shawanda

Crystal Shawanda - You Can Let Go

rate me

Wind blowing on my face

Sidewalk flying beneath my bike

A five year olds first taste

Of what freedom's really like

He was running right beside me

His hand holding on the seat

I took a deep breath and hollered

As I headed for the street

"You can let go now daddy

You can let go

Oh I think I'm ready to do this on my own

It's still a little bit scary

But I want you to know

I'll be okay now daddy

You can let go"

I was standing at the altar

Between the two loves of my life

To one I've been a daughter

To one I soon would be a wife

When the preacher asked

"Who gives this woman?"

Daddy's eyes filled up with tears

He kept holding tightly to my arm

'Til I whispered in his ear:

"You can let go now daddy

You can let go

Oh I think I'm ready to do this on my own

It's still feels a little bit scary

But I want you to know

I'll be okay now daddy

You can let go"

It was killing me

To see the strongest man I ever knew

Wasting away to nothing in that hospital room

"You know he's only hanging on for you"

That's what the night nurse said

My voice and heart were breaking

As I crawled up in his bed and said:

You can let go now daddy

You can let go

Your little girl is ready to do this on my own

Its gonna be a little bit scary

But I want you to know

I'll be okay now daddy

You can let go

You can let go
