2. Let Me Be

INTRODUCTION:
I have been known, maybe a few times, as a heartbreaker. I don’t MEAN to break hearts, and I definitely don’t enjoy it, but I will say... It does make for some really great songwriting inspiration. I wouldn’t have half the songs I’ve written if it weren’t for a few crazy ex boyfriends along the way.

LYRICS: 

Verse 1: Gotta, gotta get my shit together, I need a little space, 
To keep myself from falling, falling from grace. 
You may not understand why I wanna go, 
But what happens when you’re gone, oh baby, you don’t wanna know. 

CHORUS: Hey, hey. Baby just let me be. 
Oh, why? Why can’t you see? 

Verse 2: I always told you I was gonna break your heart, 
Well look at us now, we’re falling apart. 
This isn’t what I thought, and I don’t wanna go, 
But after this I’m sure I’m better off alone. 

CHORUS: Hey, hey. Baby just let me be.  
Oh, why? Why can’t you see? 

Bridge: Gotta keep on moving, gotta find a new town, 
‘Cause you’re not gonna like me when I’m messing around. 
You think this is love, but you can’t see, 
You and I were never meant to be. 

Sugar, I’m leaving you, 
Once and for all, it’s time to get gone. 
Darling, I’ve gotta go, 
Don’t wanna break your heart but I’m not the one.

CHORUS: Hey, hey. Baby just let me be.  
Oh, why? Why can’t you see? 
Baby just let me be.

LYRIC ANALYSIS:

Gotta, gotta get my shit together, I need a little space,  
To keep myself from falling, falling from grace.  - I have to figure some stuff out alone.
You may not understand why I wanna go,  
But what happens when you’re gone, oh baby, you don’t wanna know.  - I'm going to break your heart and you just don't understand.

Hey, hey. Baby just let me be.  
Oh, why? Why can’t you see?  - Realize what's going on and let it go.

I always told you I was gonna break your heart,  
Well look at us now, we’re falling apart.  
This isn’t what I thought, and I don’t wanna go,  - I never planned for this to happen...
But after this I’m sure I’m better off alone.  - ... but it needs to.

Hey, hey. Baby just let me be.   
Oh, why? Why can’t you see?  

Gotta keep on moving, gotta find a new town,  
‘Cause you’re not gonna like me when I’m messing around.  
You think this is love, but you can’t see,  
You and I were never meant to be.  - Again, I'm breaking your heart and you don't even realize it.

Sugar, I’m leaving you,  
Once and for all, it’s time to get gone. 
Darling, I’ve gotta go,  
Don’t wanna break your heart but I’m not the one. - I'm leaving.

Hey, hey. Baby just let me be.   
Oh, why? Why can’t you see?  
Baby just let me be.
