Enough to Let Me Go

Artist: Switchfoot

Album: Hello Hurricane

“If you love somebody, let them go. If they return, they were always yours. If they don’t, they never were.”

Maybe you’re a parent who had to watch your child walk off to a new life in college.
Maybe you’re a significant other who had to let the one you love go through a time of separation.
Maybe you’re a mother who had to wave her son goodbye before he went to join the navy.
Maybe you’re an older sibling who had to watch a younger sister find her own way to grow up.
Maybe you’re someone who had to hug your friend for the last time before they got on that airplane to begin a journey.
Maybe you’re someone who had to hold the hand of your grandmother as she said goodbye.

Maybe you, like most of us, have had to let someone go. And felt like your heart was being wrenched from your chest.

In “Enough to Let Me Go,” Jon Foreman couldn’t have depicted the heaviness of this human sensation any better:

Oh, I’m a wandering soul
I’m still walking the line
That leads me home alone

All I know
I still got mountains to climb
On my own, on my own

Do you love me enough to let me go?
To let me follow through
To let me fall for you
Do you love me enough to let me go?

Back from the dead of winter
Back from the dead and all our leaves are dry
You’re so beautiful, tonight

Back from the dead we went through
Back from the dead and both our tongues are tied
You look beautiful tonight

But every seed dies before it grows


Breathe it in and let it go
Every breath you take is not your to own
It’s not yours to hold
Do you love me enough to let me go?
