Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Just enough, not too far
Slow down now, you said
So I can keep my eye on your star

[Verse 2]
Just enought, one last glance
Launching gently into the arms of circumstance

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Cross your feet on top of the water
Sunset on the back of my hands
And all I can remember is what I left on land

[Chorus]
Take your hand off my shoulder, but keep your eye on me
I'll be sailing a long time, and missing our home
But you know, I'll be free
You've given all your love to me
But you don't have to let me go, to let me go
You don't have to let me go

[Verse 3]
Silently, a simple spell carry me home, carry me home
From here, on the wings of weightless fear

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Eyeing past in the distance
Perch my way past every plan
But I carry in my chest what I left on land

[Chorus]
Take your hand off my shoulder, but keep your eye on me
I'll be sailing a long time, and missing our home
But you know, I'll be free
And you've given all your love to me
But you don't have to let me go, to let me go
You don't have to let me go, to let me go
You don't have to let me go, to let me go
You don't have to let me go, to let me go

[Bridge]
Let me go (You don't have to let me go, to let me go)
It's okay, let me go (You don't have to let me go, to let me go)
And if I fall (Let me go, it's okay to let me go)
I'll fall safely (Let me go, that's okay to let me go)

[End-Chorus]
Take your hand off my shoulder, but keep your eye on me
I'll be sailing a long time, and missing our home
But you know that I'll be free
And you've given all your strenght to me
You've given all your love to me
You've given all you can to me
And you don't have to let me go
