Let It Go

When it starts to fall apart at the seams
You go chasing after long lost dreams
Trying be what you weren’t meant to be
Giving hope to what you know you can’t believe

And I know you feel like it’s not right
Like you’ve thrown away all you could be
That every true talent God gave you
You gave up because you really could succeed

You’ve convinced yourself it’s wrong
And you're searching for a window
But it's time to move on
Time to accept you’ll never know
And in this catch-22
The only way out for you
Is to give in to your fate and let it go

And it scared everyone away but you
Because they saw you had the grit to be the best
Some, you know, were afraid to fall behind
Others of what it takes to beat the rest


And you never really had your say
In the end, it all was thrown away
But how many times
Can you let doubt take your mind
And still be given a chance the next day?


Can you find peace somewhere within?
Can you find the courage to give in?
Oh, let it go.
