Rise Against- This Is Letting Go Lyrics

Once upon a time I could take anything, anything.
Always stepped in time, regardless of the beat
I moved my feet, I carried weight
When I could not do a thing
And I’m done seeking treasure
Just to wake up in an early grave
So I stopped right there and said

Go all 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’re not 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 all 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
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
I just know

Go all 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 tried to break these tears’ contempt but now I’m through
I’m letting go of you.

This is letting go
This is letting go

Once upon a time I could take anything, anything.
