Had To Let It Go

Had To Let It Go

Oh, how I come undone
My thread is bare and eyes so worn
Walk in the dust
And wander if you must
But turn away from this old portrait
Not even carbon can restore it
All the lessons you learned too late
It doesn’t matter anymore
A tired body under so much weight
It doesn’t hold me anymore
Had to let it go
Had to let it go
Couldn’t carry anymore
There’s a better place for me to stay
That you were never ready for
This all and all is love
Let me harden so I can break apart
Don’t wait for me
I’m going with the breeze
I’ll shake away the rest and no one
Can tell me there’s no home in stardom
I give up until
There is nothing more
I’m awake and I am ready
All the lessons you learned too late
It doesn’t matter anymore
A tired body under so much weight
It doesn’t hold me anymore
Had to let it go
Had to let it go
Couldn’t carry anymore
There’s a better place for me to stay
That you were never ready for
I believed I’d live until a hundred and three
Be relieved that this will be my testimony
