This Is Letting Go cover
Once upon a time, I could take anything, anything
Always stepped in time, regardless of the beat
I moved my feet

I carried weight, where I could not do, I faked
And I'm done seeking treasure just to wake up in an early grave
So, I stopped right there and said

Go on alone, 'cause I won't follow
This isn't giving up, no, this is letting go

Out with the old dreams I've borrowed
The path I call from here on out will be my own
The path will be my own

This is the part where the needle skips
And the chorus plays like a sink that drips
A syllable repeating, like a warning we aren't heeding

Until all is said and we noticed it
When the wheels brace and the tires grip
A map we've been misreading
A defeat we're not conceding, until now
There must be some other way out

Go on alone, 'cause I won't follow
This isn't giving up, no, this is letting go

Out with the old dreams I've borrowed
The path I call from here on out will be my own
A path to take me home

(Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)

The wind died, the whole world ceased to move
Now so quiet, her beating heart became a boom
We locked eyes, for just a moment or two
She asked why
I said, "I don't know why, I just know"

The wind died, the whole world ceased to move
(The wind died)
Now so quiet, her beating heart became a boom
(The wind died)
We locked eyes, for just a moment or two
She asked why
I said, "I don't know why, I just know
I just know"

Go on alone, 'cause I won't follow
This isn't giving up, no, this is letting go

I'll make the most of all this sorrow
I've tried to break this discontent but now I'm through
I'm letting go of you

(This is letting go)
This is letting go
This is letting go

Once upon a time, I could take anything, anything
