Letting Go  
    (Difford/Tilbrook)  
      She plaits her hair, I bite my nails 
      We balance love on the scales 
      I wind the clock and go to bed 
      Our love is hanging on a thread 
      She gets undressed, I undress too 
      The draft is cold in my bedroom 
      We cuddle up and say goodnight 
      It's all the love there is tonight.  

      I can't be brave enough  
      She cannot say what we're feeling  
      Day after day 
      We're going through the motions  
      We find it hard to let each other go 

      She boils the eggs, I make the tea 
      Outside the sun shines on the street 
      We're at that point here love has gone 
      The fuse is lit, it won't be long 
      I take a walk, she cleans the house 
      This is the end, I'm in no doubt 
      But neither one of us can show 
      The slightest sign of letting go

  • Chords
  • FROM THE ALBUM: Play.
  • COMPILATIONS: Excess Moderation.
  • From the Excess Moderation sleevenotes. Glenn: Lovingly crafted and super shiny, this is the acceptable face of our eccentricty. Another one in my top ten. Chris: These chord changes will knock you dead once you learn to play them. Mixed together with the beautiful melody and spine chilling vocal, you could not ask for much else in a day's work. Playing this live recently on our acoustic tour, I realized how great Glenn's voice can be, tender and very powerful.
