An Inspirational Song

((First of all, I’d like to thank Lola, for posting her post about an inspirational song. It was her post that inspired me to write this.))

There are many songs out there in the world. All kinds of songs. It’s not often you come across a song that’s just special to you. It inspires you. It motivates you. At the moment, the song that holds that place in my heart is ‘Let her go’ by the band Passenger. If you haven’t heard it, you probably will make no sense of the rest of the post, so I advise you to go and have a listen.

The Lyrics:

Well you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you’ll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast
You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you’ll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies

But you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
‘Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast
Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
‘Cause you loved her too much and you dive too deep

Well you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go
Oh oh oh no
And you let her go
Oh oh oh no
Well you let her go

‘Cause you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go

‘Cause you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

It talks about letting go of things, and feelings after that. Just going over the lyrics, doesn’t move you? It’s so true, all of it. Lots of times we don’t realise how much we appreciate things until we lose it.
I think if I used one sentence to describe what this song means, it would probably be, ‘Lots of times we don’t realise how much we appreciate things until we lose it.’

Don’t you agree?
