about

Dylann Heidi's "The Rope" is a KMA Best New Artist of 2012 awarded song. Written about the struggles people face with having to let go of something, or someone, who ultimately is not what is best for them despite how badly they want to hold on.

lyrics

I don’t want to let you go
But it hurts my hands
To hold the rope
And you can feel it’s fraying in my grasp

I don’t want to let you go
But it hurts me most
To hold you close
And you can feel my heartbeat in your grasp

And you have got a hold of my heart
In your hands
And you can’t
Let it drop
Cause
That’s what hurts the most
That’s what hurts the most
That’s what hurts the most
And it’s a shame about it
You gotta cut it out and
Just give it up

I don’t want you to see in
The fragile reflection
That I have been
But all the walls are coming tumbling down, down

I don’t want to just give in
To the heartbeat beating fast
So deep within me
Cause it weren’t for you, I’d be off and running

Chorus

I don’t want to let you go
But it hurts my hands
To hold the rope
But I can feel its fraying in my grasp
