How does the heart still beat
when it’s shattering into pieces unknown?
And how does love still win
when the losses become too heavy to hold?
Who lives behind your eyes?
Who is it that decides
it’s time to let go?
It’s time to let go

Let the wind take you
Let the earth shake you
And the water that makes you
gives you life to create you
again and again and again
It is you that creates you
again and again

Did you tell her
how beautiful she is?
Did she remind you
how much you have to give?
Did you both wake up
and forget what you’re meant to do?
Did you realize
how much you had to lose?

Did you tell her
did you tell her
how beautiful she is?
When you held her
did you let her love pull you back in?
Did you fear her unwielded power
her shadow and her light?
Did you reach for her
as she slipped into the night?

Let the wind take you
let the earth shake you
let the pain break you
open wide
break you open wide

Break you open wide
to make room for the light
to make room for new light (x2)

Thank you for all the
love you poured over me
It is your sweet love
that helped to set me free
I’ve got my wings now
and I’m gonna fly away
but that doesn't mean
I won’t still love you everyday
