The Interpretation: Let Her Go by Passenger
Published by Maricel on April 3, 2015
Passenger has indeed created another soulful piece in addition to its list of powerful renditions. The music started with a keyboard instrumental which I found to be a little upbeat for
a song so dramatic. Little did I know that this song would touch me with its playful melody yet with a melodramatic lyrics. This is the kind of music you would want to listen after a tragic breakup. I believe this will lead you to a lot of realizations and tearful emotions.
The song is about realizing the value of someone when that person is already gone. Letting go is hard especially when that person still holds a big part of your heart. Life is too short to be lived with full of what if’s and what could have been’s. This song will urge us to give our all without reservations for those we hold dear because we don’t know for how long that someone will be around. Change is the only thing that’s constant in this world so make a good judgement as to who are worth keeping and those who deserves to be freed. Seize each moment and don’t be afraid to be hurt for it will hurt more if you will just be left hanging with regrets thinking of the famous line ‘you’ll never miss the water until it’s gone’.
