lyrics

Living loss to loss with only fear in between
Waiting for the next rug to be pulled from my feet

Let it go
You can’t fear what you don’t know
So make do and stop your grieving
Just steel yourself
It’s all you have and nothing else
Oh, when everything is fleeting
Oh, I never thought that I’d be this way

Preemptive regret is a coward’s burden
Rendered immobile by crisis aversion
How long will I be like this?
How long can one man last?
Missing the moment before the moment has passed
Try to make the moment last

Let it go
You can’t fear what you don’t know
So make do and stop your grieving
Just steel yourself
It’s all you have and nothing else
Oh, when everything is fleeting
Oh, I never thought that I’d be this way
Now I’m afraid that it’s too late
Too late for me

I’ve made my own purgatory
Through worrying and ignoring
The good in my life
I can’t endure
I tried to make the moment last
But it’s slipping through my fingers
Like the sand in the glass
A constant reminder
I have no control

Let it go
You can’t fear what you don’t know
So make do and stop your grieving
Just steel yourself
It’s all you have and nothing else
Oh, when everything is fleeting
Steel yourself
You can’t ignore
Steel yourself
Learn to endure.
