The Art Of Letting Go

Album: Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse (2013)
Charted: 90
  • I'm making a statement of my own opinion
    Just a brief little reminder to help myself remember
    I no longer live in your dominion (no, no, no, no, no, no, ooh)
    You're just trifling, nothing more than a liability
    Got up and laid all your possessions
    Outside the kitchen window right now

    Letting go, letting go ain't easy (ooh)
    Oh, it's just exceedingly hurtful
    Somebody you used to know
    Is flinging your world around
    And they watch, as you're falling down, down, down
    Falling down, baby

    Evidently your words were merely lies
    Reverberating in my ears
    And the echo won't subside
    There's a deep deep loss of hope
    And the anger burns in me
    I hope you don't get no ideas 'bout re-uniting baby
    'Cause that's the last thing I truly need
    Your audacity is too much to be believed, so
    Go to MiMi on your contacts, press delete

    Letting go ain't easy
    Oh, it's just exceedingly hurtful
    'Cause somebody you used to know
    Is flinging your world around
    And they watch, as you're falling down, down
    Down, down

    Maybe letting go, baby letting go
    Ain't easy, ain't easy
    Baby letting go, baby letting go (woah)
    Ain't easy, ain't easy (no)

    Baby letting go, it ain't easy (oh)
    'Cause somebody you used to know
    Is flinging your world around
    And you know what?
    They watch as you're falling, as you're falling
    Down
    Fall
    It ain't easy baby Writer/s: Rodney Roy Jerkins, Mariah Carey
