Let It Happen

Album: Currents (2015)

  • It's always around me, all this noise
    But not nearly as loud as the voice saying
    "Let it happen, let it happen (It's gonna feel so good)
    Just let it happen, let it happen"

    All this running around
    Trying to cover my shadow
    An ocean growing inside
    All the others seem shallow
    All this running around
    Bearing down on my shoulders
    I can hear an alarm
    Must be a warning

    I heard about a whirlwind that's coming 'round
    It's gonna carry off all that isn't bound
    And when it happens, when it happens (I'm gonna be holding on)
    So let it happen, let it happen

    All this running around
    I can't fight it much longer
    Something's trying to get out
    And it's never been closer
    If my ticker fails
    Make up some other story
    And if I never come back
    Tell my mother I'm sorry

    I will not vanish and you will not scare me
    Try to get through it, try to bounce to it
    All the while thinking I might as well do it
    They be lovin' someone and I'm not that stupid
    Take the next ticket to take the next train
    Why would I do it? And you wanna think that

    I will not vanish and you will not scare me
    Try to get through it, try to bounce to it
    All the while thinking I might as well do it
    They be lovin' someone and I'm not that stupid
    Take the next ticket to take the next train
    Why would I do it? And you wanna think that

    I will not vanish and you will not scare me
    Try to get through it, try to bounce to it
    All the while thinking I might as well do it
    They be lovin' someone and I'm not that stupid
    Take the next ticket to take the next train
    Why would I do it? And you wanna think that

    I will not vanish and you will not scare me
    Try to get through it, try to bounce to it
    All the while thinking I might as well do it
    They be lovin' someone and I'm not that stupid
    Take the next ticket to take the next train
    Why would I do it? And you wanna think that

    Oh, maybe I was ready all along
    Oh, maybe I was ready all along
    Oh, maybe all I wanted was the sound
    Oh but maybe I was ready all along Writer/s: Kevin Parker
