3 (who?)
Yeah, I swear,
I never knew ya'.
Your jasmine hair
And canvas eyes,
I hardly listened to ya'.

That smile
You wear,
I'll gladly sit and stare,
I'm there,
For you,
If you'd just want me to.

Yeah, I swear,
I still don't know ya'.
Your longing gaze
Drifts on to worlds so far away
I just can't hold on to ya'.

'Cause you
And I,
We'll go okay sometimes,
But now
I see
You're better when you're free.

A Bird,
A breeze,
Freer than the wind;

And I
Just won't
Hold on,
I'll let you chase your whims;

For where, here,
Can angels
Find the space
To spread their wings?
A song myself and a friend wrote together, covering the rarely considered topic of actually just letting a girl go... because it's better for her.

A gentlemanly sacrifice.

We should all try to make at least one.

Aaawww, it's very sweet, in a different way. :P
I like the feel to it and the disjointed lines. Not sure about the "ya's" though. Takes away from the sweetness a little bit, but that may have been what you were going for. :)
Reminds me a bit of "Let Me Go" by 3 Doors Down, but roles reversed. And you're right, it is a sweet topic, but sweeter than the "I'll do anything to get you back". :)

Hm! If you heard me perform this, I do it in a rather Australian accent. The ya' is just natural and how I wrote the song. ;D

Normally I sing British, but 'eh.
