The song makes sure that every story begins with once upon a time and the fact is it’s up to us to cherish the time we are given to ensure that we live happily ever after. “How Could I Let You Go” is a sorrowful heartfelt love lost flavored with an R&B empathy framing a female narration and an unforgettable and luxurious piano performance.
