Once upon a time I could take anything, anything
Always stepped in time, regardless of the beat

I moved my feet, I carried weight
What I could not do I faked
And I'm done seeking treasure
Just to wake up in an early grave
So I stopped right there and said

Go on alone 'cause I won't follow
This isn't giving up, no, this is letting go
Out with the old dreams I've borrowed
The path I call from here on out will be my own
The path will be my own

This is the part where the needle skips
And the chorus plays like a sick that drips
A syllable repeating
Like a warning we're not heeding

Until all is said and we noticed it
When the wheels brace and the tires grip
A map we've been misreading
A defeat we're not conceding
Until now there must be some other way out

Go on alone 'cause I won't follow
This isn't giving up, no, this is letting go
Out with the old dreams I've borrowed
The path I call from here on out will be my own
A path to take me home

Hey, hey, hey, hey

The wind died
The whole world ceased to move
Now so quiet
Her beating heart became a boom

We locked eyes
For just a moment or two
She asked why
I said, "I don't know why"

I just know

The wind died
The whole world ceased to move
Now so quiet
Her beating heart became a boom

We locked eyes
For just a moment or two
She asked why
I said, "I don't know why"
I just know, I just know

Go on alone 'cause I won't follow
This isn't giving up, no, this is letting go
I'll make the most of all this sorrow
I tried to break these tears' contempt
But now I'm through, I'm letting go of you

This is letting go, this is letting go
This is letting go

Once upon a time I could take anything, anything
