Lyrics

Little darling 
I see your tired and empty eyes 
and the pain of a life that’s broken
Little darling
Though everybody tries, 
no the door it will never open
 
Let her go, let her go
Set her free and let her go
Her mother whispers soft and low
Just set her free and let her go
 
Just a little flower 
That’s wilting in the cruel haze of fate
and of time’s survival
Just a little girl
Who has no more time to wait
 for mysteries cool revival

Let her go, let her go
Set her free and let her go
Her mother whispers soft and low
Just set her free and let her go
 
And so we shout our anger 
And we shout our shame 
but we’re sure no-one will hear us
And so we take the burden
And we take the blame and 
hope she’s always near us

Let her go, let her go
Set her free and let her go
Her mother whispers soft and low
Just set her free and let her go
