Letting Go

from by if and it

lyrics

your eyes turn to hands to hold, your heart turns to bones to stand up to this world we're living in.

still as i am holding you are moving away, a hastily placed mistake. but these days they just keep on wandering past sometimes i wonder where they are all going, i wonder when their hurry began sometimes i wonder where they'll rest once they get to the end, cause i do not want to ever have to see these days ever again and sometimes i just wish that i had half as much faith in myself as do my friends.

how did we learn to hold on, when this whole world it keeps letting go, how did we learn to hold on when this whole world just keep letting us know that it's ok to let go, it's ok to let go, it's ok, it's ok, it's ok.

your heart turns to rust to hold to cold and afraid to give love after you have been hurt and the closer you stand when you are together the more alone you become once you fall apart, there's more to this life than just falling, this whole world its a real work of art, still as the time may stand soft as the sun may set harsh as my thoughts may spin bringing us under with them and i do not want to fear you no i do not want to be near you i just wish this whole thing could become pretend, cause i do not think that i am ever going to wake up in the end i just wish this could be pretend. i do not think that i am going to wake up in the end i just wish this could be pretend. i do not think that i am going to wake up in the end just wish this could be pretend.

how did we learn to hold on, when this whole world it keeps letting go, how did we learn to hold on when this whole world just keep letting us know that it's ok to let go, it's ok to let go, it's ok, it's ok, it's ok.
