Let it burn

NO, I AM NOT SURE HOW I WILL DO IT
OR EVEN HOW I AM GOING TO SAY IT
I AM NOT SURE IF WE CAN EVER SAVE THIS
I AM SORRY YOU NO LONGER WANT TO BE US 
I KNOW IT'S NOT GOING TO BE VERY EASY
FOR ME TO SIT BACK AND WATCH YOU SLIP AWAY
YOU SHOULD KNOW AT THE END OF THE DAY
THAT YOU WERE THE BEST THING THAT
HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ME
BUT I AM THE LIT MATCH TO YOUR GASOLINE
YOU KNOW THAT SOMETHINGS JUST
ARE NOT MEANT TO BE
SO, I GOT TO  LIGHT IT LET IT BURN
I HAVE TO LET IT STING
I GOT TO LET YOU GO
I NEED TO LET YOU BE
LET IT BRING ME DOWN TO MY KNEES
I NEED TO LET YOU FLY SET YOU FREE
LET IT ALL GO UP IN FLAMES ALONG WITH
MY WHOLE LIFE AND ALL MY DREAMS
LET YOU FIND SOMEONE YOU DESERVE
I HAVE TO LET IT STING I GOT TO LET IT HURT
I AM GOING TO WATCH THE FIRE GROW LET IT BURN
THE ONE THING THAT HURTS THE MOST
IS OUR FRIENDSHIP THAT’S GOT TO GO
I CAN FEEL IT DEEP DOWN IN MY SOUL
YOU WERE THE DREAMS I DREAMED AT NIGHT
A ONCE UPON A TIME THAT ENDED RIGHT
THE LAST FALLING STAR THAT CAME TO SIGHT
BUT I NEED TO FINALLY SAY GOODBYE
ERASE ALL THE MEMORIES FROM MY MIND
THEN WIPE AWAY ALL THESE TEARS THAT
ARE FALLING FROM MY EYES
TURN AWAY NEVER LOOKING BACK
LET IT GO AND LEAVE IT IN THE PAST
CLOSE MY EYES AND GO TO SLEEP
WAKE UP TOMORROW TO A BRAND-NEW DAY
BRUSH MYSELF OFF GET BACK UP ON MY FEET
WHICH I KNOW WILL NOT BE AN EASY FEAT
LOOK UP TO GOD WHO WILL GIVE ME HOPE 
AND STRENGTH TO MOVE ON IN THIS TIME OF NEED
BESIDES, I HAVE A LITTLE BOY WHO NEEDS ME
FOR HIM THERE IS NOTHING THAT HAS CHANGED
I WILL FAKE A SMILE LAUGH AT ALL HIS JOKES
BECAUSE I KNOW THAT ONE DAY I WILL FIND LOVE
OR MAYBE LOVE WILL FIND ME.
