lyrics

LET IT GO.

Couldn’t find the avenue I couldn’t find the restaurant I took it as a signal like an omen I suppose and then there was this feeling that shortly arose I let it go. I wasn’t in the valley lord I was not on the hill wasn’t here to give birth and I was not here to kill but I caused you harm and I bid you ill will so now I let it go. Memories of evenings are scarce and unmarked, if I had a car I would not know where its parked, to the dark I pushed our hearts so now I let them go.
Of the old chains I let them go of the new ones I let them go and to all the things ill never know I let them go.
I think of you a satellite just floating round in orbit I know you’re there but I simply just ignore it and you of me the same I plead let me go. Isn’t is appalling all the sadness in the world and to think it comes down to one pretty girl of the eyes of the body the memories return I let them go.
Of the old chains I let them go of the new ones I let them go and to all the things ill never know I let them go.
Came back to California but I never made it home, came through Amsterdam but I never did get stoned I was too busy thinking of the things I didn’t own but no I let them go. Then finally one Sunday I am out there on the street I'm standing still the world is spinning at my feet. I am close to the house but miles away from peace when it dawns on me to let you go.
