Let It Go Lyrics

From walking home and talking loads
To seeing shows in evening clothes with you
From nervous touch and getting drunk
To staying up and waking up with you

Now we're slipping near the edge
Holding something we don't need
Oh, this delusion in our heads
Is gonna bring us to our knees

So come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me

Everything that's broke
Leave it to the breeze
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me

And I'll be me

From throwing clothes across the floor
To teeth and claws and slamming doors at you
If this is all we're living for
Why are we doing it, doing it, doing it anymore?

I used to recognize myself
It's funny how reflections change
When we're becoming something else
I think it's time to walk away

So come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me Everything that's broke
Leave it to the breeze
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me

And I'll be me

Tryna fit your hand inside mine
When we know it just don't belong
There's no force on earth
Could make it feel right, no

Tryna push this problem up the hill
When it's just too heavy to hold
Think now is the time to let it slide

So come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me

Everything that's broke
Leave it to the breeze
Let the ashes fall
Forget about me

Come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me

And I'll be me

Thoughts & Meanings

Being sad About love and life and how things sometimes don't go as planned and how we break each other's spirit thur love! So sometimes we just need to let go, just let it be!

The song is about a dying relationship which both parties feel letting go is not the best option. It's reminds of of the fun times in the beginning, how u gradually fell in love. The second verse talks about the strain and the present unhealthy occurrences in the relationship. It's impossible to believe how far they fell. Sometimes hanging on seems like a good option but it's not. most times we are scared to start over so we try to glue a shattered glass, we forget it can't look beautiful once glued it's forever gonna be ugly and rough. The song says it all the best thing is to let it, let it be, be yourselves. Forget about each other let the ashes fall, leave it to the breeze.

Love this song so much so nice if you are having a bad day listen to this song

When you think that someone doesn't care about you. Just let that person go. Don't care about that person. If he/she is a true friend she will come hunting for you instead of you hunting for him/her

I have had a gift given to me along time ago and I kept it for 13 years and let it go life is an obstacle u will never master it what happens is for a reason it is about positive thinking be happy think good and u carnt go wrong

i think its telling another person its time to move on, " why don't you be you, and ill be me" he must mean its time for us to part. and that he's changing being in this relationship. I thought about what this song meant on a personal level. " let the ashes fall, forget about me", its a song about moving on in my eyes. It's a song about loving someone at the beginning, then loosing the connection.

to me this song is so beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. I think this song is about a relationship that is so far past gone but the people in it dont want to let it go but they both know its best if they do. I have felt this before and it is a horrible feeling to know that however long you were in the relationship is now just gone and wasted. you try to figure out what went wrong and cant. I have been listening to this song non-stop for the past 3 days. I can seem to shake it. it makes me want to cry and smile at the same time. To me this song has lots of meaning. I am happily married now but there was a time in my life that i was wasting my time with the wrong man. i actually said/screamed the words to him of let it go and forget about me then walked out the door to never look back no matter how much he begged me to come back. I dont know that i said all this correctly but you get it lol

I think it's about a relationship that is past the point of return of being healthy. One that has gone too far to go back. As much as they try and care so much about each other, it just doesn't work. A relationship where they are very comfortable with each other and somewhat codependent. They can't imagine ending it completely and not being in each other's life even as friends. They have a deep connection, a soul tie. As much as they try, they both know that the reality is they have to let each other go at some point. They are holding on to this fantasy of it working and what use to be before it sets in that how much they care about each other isn't enough to hold on. So many times in life, the people you want so much for it to work and could be your soulmate, it doesn't always mean you are going to be with that person. Very sad and leaves an emptiness inside that can never be filled by yourself or anyone else. The way a soulmate makes you feel is unlike anything else and when you can't be together you are forced to walk through the rest of your life feeling like something is always missing.

I like your intepretation of the song, except that this is only James Bay’s feeling toward the relationship. James Bay does not want to continue on with a relationship that he thinks no longer works. Your interpretation has the word “they” and this could be understood that they (James Bay and his special someone) both believe the relationship can no longer work. The other person may probably try to hold onto it though. Thank you!

The song, to me at least, is about letting go of a relationship that is dangerous. They had good memories together but it's not the same anymore. Instead of being positive influences on each other, they're only tearing each other apart. It's better to just go separate ways instead of hanging onto something that's causing pain.

Yes

The song talks about a relationship that is not what it used to be, he suggest that they are trying to hold on in a love that they don't need. That it's time to let go of each other so they can be what they really are, because they are pretending to be something they are not. He asks why they are still trying if their love is gone and all they do is fight "slamming doors at you". He says that they can try to love each other again but it wouldn't happen because deep down they know "it just don't belong".

Concise and right to the point! Thanks much!

Yes!!
