Let It Go Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
From walking home and talking loads
Seeing shirts in evening clothes with you
From nervous touch and getting drunk
To staying up and waking up with you
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
So come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me
Verse 4
Everything that's broke
Leave it to the breeze
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me
Verse 5
And I'll be me
Verse 6
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?
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
So come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me
Verse 9
Everything that's broke
Leave it to the breeze
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me
Verse 10
And I'll be me
Verse 11
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
Verse 12
Tryna push this problem up the hill
When it's just too heavy to hold
Think now is the time to let it slide
Verse 13
So come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me
Verse 14
Everything that's broke
Leave it to the breeze
Let the ashes fall
Forget about me
Verse 15
Come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me
Verse 16
And I'll be me

What's Your Interpretation?

10 Thoughts and Song Meanings

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! - Comment by rickyle7 6 months ago
