Lyrics

“Let It Go”

From walking home and talking loads
To seeing shows in evening clothes with you
From nervous touch and getting drunk
To staying up and waking up with you
But now we’re sleeping at the edge
Holding something we don’t need
All this delusion in our heads
Is gonna bring us to our knees
CHORUS
So come on let it go
Just let it be
Why don’t you be you
And I’ll be meEverything that’s broke
Leave it to the breeze
Why don’t you be you
And I’ll be meAnd I’ll be meFrom throwing clothes across the floor
To teeth and claws and slamming doors at you
If this is all we’re living for
Why are we doing it, doing it, doing it anymore

I used to recognize myself
It’s funny how reflections change
When we’re becoming something else
I think it’s time to walk away

CHORUS

Trying to fit your hand inside of mine
When we know it just don’t belong
There’s no force on earth
Could make me feel right, no

Whoa

Trying to push this problem up the hill
When it’s just too heavy to hold
Think now’s the time to let it slide

CHORUS

Come on let it go
Just let it be
Why don’t you be you
And I’ll be me

And I’ll be me
