let go

from by Claire Raby

lyrics

the only role I know how to play
is woman scorned and gone astray
and there's no one alive that could divert my fate
I am self-prophesied to decay

let go, let go, don't let yourself go
are you running around run aground?
let go, let go, don't you dare let him know
you're enclosing your heart in his hands

(let go, don't let yourself go
you don't even notice you're adrift in the road
let go, don't let yourself go
you can't let him know your heart is exposed)

(no one alive, there's none left alive)

let go, let go, don't let yourself go
are you spiraling out, dying down?
and get set, go, are you scared to go forward with
entrusting your heart in his hands?

(maintain composure, I'm under control, over'n'out
entertain the notion that patience will eventually win out)

let go, let go, don't let yourself go
(maintain composure, I'm here with your ghost, shutting down)
I am here with your ghost, shutting down
let go, let go, don't let yourself go
(entertain the notion that reason will eventually win out)
I hope reason will eventually win out
