  • Just the guitar

    This was all you, none of it me
    You put your hands all over my body and told me, umm
    You told me you were ready
    For the big one, for the big jump
    I'd be your last love everlasting you and me
    That was what you told me

    I'm giving you up
    I've forgiven it all
    You set me free, oh

    Send my love to your new lover
    Treat her better
    We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
    We both know we ain't kids no more
    Send my love to your new lover
    Treat her better
    We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
    We both know we ain't kids no more

    I was too strong you were trembling
    You couldn't handle the hot heat rising (rising), umm
    Baby I'm so rising
    I was running, you were walking
    You couldn't keep up, you were falling down (down), umm
    There's only one way down

    I'm giving you up
    I've forgiven it all
    You set me free, oh

    Send my love to your new lover
    Treat her better
    We gotta let go of all of our ghosts
    We've both know we ain't kids no more
    Send my love to your new lover
    Treat her better
    We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
    We both know we ain't kids no more

    If you're ready, if you're ready
    If you're ready, I am ready
    If you're ready, if you're ready
    We both know we ain't kids no more
    No, we ain't kids no more

    I'm giving you up
    I've forgiven it all
    You set me free

    Send my love to your new lover
    Treat her better
    We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
    We both know we ain't kids no more
    Send my love to your new lover
    Treat her better
    We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
    We both know we ain't kids no more

    If you're ready, if you're ready (Send my love to your new lover)
    If you're ready, are you ready? (Treat her better)
    We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
    We both know we ain't kids no more
    If you're ready, if you're ready (Send my love to your new lover)
    If you're ready, are you ready? (Treat her better)
    We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
    We both know we ain't kids no more
