Ain't no talkin' to this man, ain't no pretty other side
Ain't no way to understand the stupid words of pride
It would take an acrobat and I already tried all that so
I'm gonna let him fly, let him fly

The things can move at such a pace, the second hand just waved goodbye
You know the light has left his face but you can't recall just where or why
So there was really nothing to it, I just went and cut right through it
I said I'm gonna let him fly, oh yeah, yeah

There's no mercy in a live wire, no rest at all in freedom
Of the choices we are given it's no choice at all
The proof is in the fire, you touch before it moves away, yeah
But you must always know how long to stay and when to go

And there ain't no talkin' to this man, he's been tryin' to tell me so
It took awhile to understand the beauty of just letting go
'Cause it would take an acrobat and I already tried all that
I'm gonna let him fly

I'm gonna let him fly, fly, oh
I'm gonna let him fly, fly, oh
I'm gonna let him
