Learn To Let Go

Album: Rainbow (2017)
Charted: 97
  • Been a prisoner of the past
    Had a bitterness when I looked back
    Was telling everyone it's not that bad
    'Til all my shit hit the fan

    I know I'm always like
    Telling everybody, "You don't gotta be a victim
    Life ain't always fair, but hell is living in resentment
    Choose redemption, your happy ending's up to you"

    I think it's time to practice what I preach
    Exorcise the demons inside me
    Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
    The past can't haunt me if I don't let it
    Live and learn and never forget it
    Whoa, gotta learn to let it go

    Had a boogieman under my bed
    Putting crazy thoughts inside my head
    Always whispering, "It's all your fault"
    He was telling me, "No, you're not that strong"

    I know I'm always like
    Telling everybody, "You don't gotta be a victim
    Life ain't always fair, but hell is living in resentment
    Choose redemption, your happy ending's up to you"

    So I think it's time to practice what I preach
    Exorcise the demons inside me
    Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
    The past can't haunt me if I don't let it
    Live and learn and never forget it
    Whoa, gotta learn to let it go

    Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
    Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
    Learn to let go, learn to let go
    Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
    Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
    Learn to let go, learn to let go

    I'm done reliving my bad decisions
    I see now maybe there's a reason
    Why, I, I, I, I, I, I been through hell and back
    Yeah, honestly, it's what made me who I am
    Holding on to wasted time
    Gotta learn to let go in life

    So I think it's time to practice what I preach
    Exorcise the demons inside me
    Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
    The past can't haunt me if I don't let it
    Live and learn and never forget it
    Whoa, gotta learn to let it go

    Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
    Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
    Learn to let go, learn to let go
    Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
    Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
    Learn to let go, learn to let go Writer/s: Kesha Sebert, Pebe Sebert, Stuart Crichton
