Holding On and Letting Go

I'm holding on to one love
To another, I'm letting go
So much temptation between them
Which is right is hard to know
But the one I want to hold onto
I can't get out of my heart
But our relationship was over before it had a start
He had a certain way; a look in his eyes
That made me believe his promises
And covered up his lies
I felt good inside when I thought his love was real
But how could he treat me the way he did
And leave me feeling the way I feel
I'm letting go of that old flame
That once in my heart burned bright
The choice just gets easier, I only hope I chose right
Whenever we made love, and he looked into my eyes
Whispered words into my ear that left me mystified
Letting go of something you love is so damn hard to do
But I can't hold on to what's not forever and I know will never be true
What breaking up really means, I may never understand
Another way to say "It's over" between a woman and man
Even though it hurts real bad, I must not let it show
Holding on to this love... and at the same time..letting go
