Let It Go

Liner Notes: 

This literally started with the very simple (and probably done before) title. I wanted to write a song about letting go of the past, when it is holding you back and screwing with your emotions.

This is a first draft and needs some work.

Collab would be nice Smile Please read my profile page on collaboration Smile

Thank you for reading and imagining Smile

Lyrics: 

v1
Yesterday is nothing but a snapshot in the mind
A painting in colour of thoughts that intertwine
Ephemeral and moving with the sands beneath my feet
They often end up black and white
And often misaligned

pre ch
How can I forget, how can I live in the now

chorus
I need to let it go away
To sail on oceans deep
Let it roll across the open desert wind
I need to let it go away
Just anywhere but here
To somewhere that is lost within a part of me
I need to let it go away
So very far away from me
I need to let it go away from me

v2
Letting go of something that creates a world of fear
Shouldn't be so hard and yet I have to persevere
With cleaning out the parts that are toxic to my heart
Leaving me a head that's clear
And drying up my tears

pre ch
How can I forget, how can I live in the now

chorus
I need to let it go away
To sail on oceans deep
Let it roll across the open desert wind
I need to let it go away
Just anywhere but here
To somewhere that is lost within a part of me
I need to let it go away
So very far away from me
I need to let it go away from me

Very beautiful lyrics about letting go, moving on, finding the way. Universal appeal and meaning.

Great lyrics. Letting go is one of the most powerful things we can do for ourselves. Alongside that is forgiving, which is actually the answer to the question in the pre chorus. Smile

So easy to know what we have to do yet so hard to do it sometimes. You capture that sentiment well.
