Dan was married to his first wife Maggie from 1982-1985 so this song is about her
This is a picture of Dan and Maggie


A bad situation right from the start
She played me for a fool and she broke my heart
An infatuation, a hard loss to take
But we all must make our own mistakes

Let her go
I knew I had to let her go
You know it wasn't easy
It was painfully slow
But I swear I finally let her go

All of those feelings were so long ago
I haven't felt a thing since I let her go
But you don't believe it
You still have your doubts
And while you do the tension mounts

Let her go
You know you got to let her go
You know it's never easy 
It's painfully slow
But you know you got to let her go

I will not deny it, I tried to hold on
But human hearts can only stay broke so long
I told you the truth, how much more can I do
And now my love it's up to you

Let her go
You know you got to let her go
You know it's never easy
It's painfully slow
But you're gonna have to let her go

Let her go
You know you got to let her go
You know it's never easy
It's got to be slow
But you know you got to let her go
