Rise Against - This Is Letting Go Lyrics

This Is Letting Go

Once upon a time I could take anything, anything.
I always stepped in time, regardless of the beat
I moved my feet, I carried weight
What I could not do I faked
I dug seeking treasure
Just to wake up in an early grave
I stopped right then and said

Go on alone,
Because I won't follow.
But this isn't giving up, no this is letting go
Out with the old dreams I've borrowed
The path I carve 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 aren't heeding
Until all of a sudden we notice 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 on alone because I won't follow
But this isn't giving up no, this is letting go
Out with the old dreams I've borrowed
The path I carve 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 on alone because I won't follow
but this isn't giving up, no this is letting go
I made the most of all this sorrow
I tried to brave these discontent 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.
