From the album "Book of Lightning" (2007)


Intro: C-G-D-G

             C
She tried to hold me
             G
She tried to hold me
           D
She didnít know
                G
love is letting go 

                          C
She said ĎIím looking for perfectioní
                    G
as she strode in my direction
                    D
She cast her mantle round me,
                              G
said ĎIím completed since you found meí
                 C
She executed her enchantment
                   G
secreted me in her encampment
                       D
With diversions and pretences
                    G 
she dismantled my defences


She tried to hold me
She tried to hold me
She didnít know
love is letting go 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/w/waterboys/113031.html ]
She told me I was unrealistic
and then she went ballistic
in her powder blue pajamas,
me some flotsam in her drama
She said ďloveís what I believe inĒ
but inside she was seething
with a cyclone raging under
like she was skin surrounding thunder

She tried to hold me
She tried to hold me
She didnít know
love is letting go

I made it to the stairwell
in the street I muttered farewell
with a driving wind agin me
and shame exploding in me
It took me six years to begin again
to feel secure in my own skin again
for she lingered like uranium
like a demon in my cranium

She tried to hold me
She tried to hold me
She didnít know
love is letting go 

All this was long ago now
and if I knew then what I know now
Iíd have deployed a little patience
Iíd have laughed at all her stipulations
but I was young and I fumbled
a boy-fool whose castle crumbled
I couldnít save her
though I forgave her

She tried to hold me
She tried to hold me
She didnít know 
love is letting go
