Just Let It Go

© John Tubridy 2016

You can hold it til it hurts. You can love until it’s lost
You can walk until you’re weary. You can try and count the cost
You can take the past for granted. You can take it on the chin
You can look around in anger to where the hurt has been

Just let it go, let it go. Just let it go, let it go
Time to leave the house of pain, time to live your life again
Just let it go, let it go, let it go

Can you hear the muffled voices? Can you taste the wasted wine?
Can you remember laughing faces? Can you see the warning sign?
Are memories tangled in confusion? Are you wasted by belief?
Are you blinded by the darkness? Are you still looking for the thief?

Just let it go, let it go. Just let it go, let it go
Time to leave the house of pain, time to live your life again
Just let it go, let it go, let it go

You can walk a mile for mercy. You can walk a mile for peace
You can fall down for forgiveness. You can get down on your knees
You can heal within the silence. You can whither on the vine
You can wash away your burden. You can put your hand in mine

Just let it go, let it go. Just let it go, let it go
Time to leave the house of pain, time to live your life again
Just let it go, let it go, let it go

You can hold it til it hurts. You can love until it’s lost
You can walk until you’re weary. You can try and count the cost
You can take the past for granted. You can take it on the chin
You can look around in anger to where the hurt has been

Just let it go, let it go. Just let it go, let it go
Time to leave the house of pain, time to live your life again
Just let it go, let it go, let it go
Just let it go, let it go, let it go
