Passenger - Let Her Go

I was introduce to this song by a friend and instantly fell in love with it. His voice is just so subtle and real. It relaxes you and make you think about all you have and that you should appreciate. I love this song. These lyrics fit my 'current relationship' so well. So touching.

You won't know how good it was until its too late, when its gone - very true and something most people felt I'm sure.  But, gone here could mean break up or even death, the song never reveals. still the lyric is cryptic about who is in fact letting this go, does he creak up from disappointment or did she let him go and in lack of action  he just lets her go instead of fighting for it. But it could be also that loss puts you in this state, the lyric describes and the message 'Let her go'  simple means that you have to try to carry on because the pain lingers on.

I feel this song is about having done everything you can for someone to only fall in the end. Through the time you spend hoping you can 'make a dream last and 'loving her too much', you somehow realize that the ultimate way to let her know you love her is to let her go. Hence, 'Only know you love her when you let her go'. It's about respecting the choices that person made and knowing you can't stick around any longer.
