Ready To Let Go

Album: Social Cues (2019)
  • Sun went down, sun went down over Pompeii
    On both sides the vow was broken
    Oh my my, I'm the one
    Trying to hide this damage done
    One day, all our secrets will be spoken

    As we slow dance, I became your statue frozen
    Times I wonder, are we just a puff of smoke? Yeah
    Underneath this bed of ashes, still withholding everything
    Like we were never close

    Don't you worry, baby, no sense trying to change it
    I'ma strike these matches, never had control
    I'm ready to let go, no, was I fooling myself?
    I'ma spread these ashes, never had control
    I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready to let go

    Sun went down, sun went down over Pompeii
    On holy ground, our vows were broken
    We met up, we broke bread
    I was blue your dress was red, ain't it strange?
    We both knew this day was coming

    As we slow dance, I became your statue frozen
    Times I wonder, are we just a puff of smoke? Yeah
    Underneath this bed of ashes, still withholding everything
    Like we were never close

    Don't you worry, baby, no sense trying to change it
    I'ma strike these matches, never had control
    I'm ready to let go, no, was I fooling myself?
    I'ma spread these ashes, never had control
    I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready to let go

    Don't you worry, baby, no sense trying to change it
    I'ma strike these matches, never had control
    I'm ready to let go, no, was I fooling myself?
    I'ma spread these ashes, never had control
    I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready to let go Writer/s: Bradley Shultz, Daniel Tichenor, Jared Champion, Matthan Minster, Matthew Shultz, Nicholas Bockrath
