lifeblood: songs: lyrics: let it go


throwing coins in a wishing well
if i couldn't count
if i couldn't tell
it wouldn't worry me
if my wishes don't come true

open eyes to an open mile
from a broken heart
to a crooked smile
you can find your way
your ways will find you too

someone's missing you
someone's hanging on
to lonely like the dead
and that old time war of words
just the sermon in your head
let it go
let it go
let it go
let it go
let it go
let it go

seven nights and seven days
it made my world to see your face
sweet harbinger
the serpent's been let loose
and he's sunning on the rocks
as i'm pulling up my socks
and you're making tea
trying to find your shoes

someone's missing you
someone's hanging on
to lonely like the dead
and that old time war of words
just the sermon in your head
let it go
let it go
let it go
let it go
let it go
let it go

with the harvest on the vine
some how the sun shows up in time
and gives the poet
seed for perfect thought
you will be a simpler man
and work it out
with your bare hands
we do the best we can
with what we got

someone's missing you
someone's hanging on
to lonely like the dead
and that old time war of words
just the sermon in your head
let it go
let it go
let it go
let it go
let it go
let it go
