Rope of Sand Lyrics

by Jamie Lidell

The wind don't care which way it's blowing
So where are you going?
Time to give up, time to give up knowing
Your shoes don't care which way they're going
So who are you following?
Time to give up, time to give up tiredness

So many things I don't understand
But there's one thing that I know
When everything is a rope of sand
We should be learning to let it go

Don't wanna win, don't wanna lose
So where does that lead you?
Trying to give up, trying to give up trying
The games don't care if you see right through them
So who are you fooling?
Time to give up, time to give up playing now

So many things I don't understand
But there's one thing that I know
When everything is a rope of sand
We should be learning to let it go

What happens when you let it go
Does it cause a crumbling fold?
Slowly realizing you can love
Without having to hold

So many things I don't understand
But there's one thing that I know
When everything is a rope of sand
We should be learning to let it go
