A Thousand Matches

Lying on a mattress cause my friend's crazy sister took my bed away
Sleeping she looked like an actress in theory and in practice
I said there's got to be a better way
She said you light a thousand matches
When you finally set fire will you run away?
So why'd you go and do it
When you knew that you would go and I would stay?

I hit the wall in frustration, the conversation had been circling for days
She said don't take it out on him, for the wall has always been
Supportive in the best of ways
We're laughing and crying like madmen dying in the snow
For just one second it was funny that she would have to stay and I would go

And I said love, you know, I love you so
When you love someone well you've gotta let 'em know
She said "Nothing's changed, I love you the same
When you love someone, sometimes you gotta let 'em go"

She handed me a stone in the perfect shape of a heart
She said I'm gonna take this home
For I know you'll only lose it somewhere after dark
In some faceless hotel room
You seem to lose everything you know
She didn't mean it how it sounded
What she meant was she would stay and I would go

And I said love, you know, I love you so
When you love someone well you've gotta let 'em know
She said "Nothing's changed
I love you the same
When you love someone
Sometimes you gotta let 'em go"

Sometimes you tear it all apart
To see the wood from the trees
Sometimes you break your own heart
To set yourself free

I walked her to the station
Hesitation in our movements and our tone
Words finally left after realizing
How uncomfortable they'd grown
See, what you want and what you need, well
They seldomly succeed to grow
We reluctantly agreed that when you love someone
You gotta let them go
