Let It Go

Album: Chaos and The Calm (2015)
Charted: 10 16
  • 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

    Now we're slipping near the edge
    Holding something we don't need
    Oh, this delusion in our heads
    Is gonna bring us to our knees

    So come on, let it go
    Just let it be
    Why don't you be you
    And I'll be me

    Everything that's broke
    Leave it to the breeze
    Why don't you be you
    And I'll be me

    And I'll be me

    From 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

    So come on, let it go
    Just let it be
    Why don't you be you
    And I'll be me

    Everything that's broke
    Leave it to the breeze
    Why don't you be you
    And I'll be me

    And I'll be me

    Tryna fit your hand inside mine
    When we know it just don't belong
    There's no force on earth
    Could make it feel right, no

    Tryna push this problem up the hill
    When it's just too heavy to hold
    Think now is the time to let it slide

    So come on, let it go
    Just let it be
    Why don't you be you
    And I'll be me

    Everything that's broke
    Leave it to the breeze
    Let the ashes fall
    Forget about me

    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 Writer/s: James Michael Bay, Paul Barry
