lyrics

Let it go. Still your mouth and listen.

I never wanted to say this twice. You know I never wanted to say this once.
There is nothing that can be done. Yeah this one’s on you.
You never wanted to be like him. You know you never wanted fade away.
You are solid (you are alive), you are not a ghost.

Hold on tight, lest this word swallow you whole. Leave no trace of you to be remembered in tears and in grief. Potential burning out is terrible not in what once was, but what could have been.

Let it go. Still your mouth and listen.
Let the words just drop and fade, please let the words just stop and fall away. Cause the way you talk, god the way you breathe suffocates the ones you love with apathy.
I never wanted to say this twice. You know I never wanted to say this once.
There is nothing that can be done. Yeah this one’s on you.
You never wanted to be like him. You know you never wanted fade away.
You are solid (you are alive), you are not a ghost.
I see you reaching out; I see you falling down.

Please don’t take this thinking that I’m giving up on you. I swear I’m not, and I won’t let go. I just fear that one day I’ll wake to you never waking up, like that dream I had about dad.
But for you there is time.
Stand tall.
Feel the waves crash.
Let the tide rise and let it fall.
Rip the water from your lungs as you scream out: “Never give up. There is always hope.”

I will always be here for you.
