"Let go" as written by Robert Douglas Graves, Jason Mcarthur and Jasen Rauch....
Hey you, look what you do to me
You bend and you bruise me
Why you try to control me?
But you don't know me
How come you just want to hurt me?
How come you just want to push me?
I can't ignore you anymore
Cause everywhere I turn you
You burn me, you break me
You always want to take me down with you
What do you want from me?

I don't wanna be afraid, I don't wanna run away
I don't want to be evaded it's more that I can take
I'm never gonna be the same
I threw it all away
I don't want to be evaded
Just let go! (look what you do to me)
Let go! (look what you do to me)

Hey you, look what you do to me
You burnt and you scared me
With all that you tell me (but I don't listen!)
You love me, you hate me
You always want to take me down with you
What do you want from me?

I don't wanna be afraid I don't wanna run away
I don't want to be evaded it's more that I can take
I'm never gonna be the same
I threw it all away
I don't want to be evaded
Just let

You kept pushing me
You keep using me
You keep twisting me
You keep breaking me
You can't have me anymore
You can't have me anymore
You can't have me anymore
You can't have me, let go!

I don't wanna be afraid, I don't wanna run away
I don't want to be evaded it's more that I can take

I'm never gonna be the same
I threw it all away
I don't want to be evaded
Just let go! Let go! Just let go!
I don't wanna be afraid
Let go! (I don't wanna run away!)
Just let go! Let go! Let go!

    General Commentto me this song is directed not so much towards anyone else...but the person inside, that voice that tells us everythign we do is wrong, i beleive this song is takn from the christian view of separating from ourselves, because often all we do is hurt ourselves, in the same way, this song could be directed to the world as a whole, who beat down christians simply for beleiving and stating what they beleive, but really i'm not sure, it could be both or none of these things, that's for you to decide
    the lines "you love me you hate me" make me think more of an inward battle simple because that little thing inside of us that tells us we're wrong always says it knows best silently, by telling us it cares, and at the same time it hates us, then when it moves on and says "you can't have me anymore" it feels like a personal revelation that it can't controll you, that it's just a feeling and it couldnt exist without you, and in that way it can't have me anymore, i have gone through many personal struggles so this may just be my own feeling of the song, btu as always this is simply my oppinion, try and form yor own and jsut use mine as a guideline if anything at all

    General CommentThis song is talking about Satan. Christians are constantly targeted by the devil with temptation. I believe he is going through a phase where the devil is just after him hardcore and throwing things at him that are hurting or ruining his life. He's affraid but he doesn't want to be. "Let Go" is a cry for Christ to finally relieve him of his spiritual battle with satan, he wants to finally be free of these trials he's going through so he is begging God.

    Many Christians go through this phase. Especially when you are a new or struggling Christian, satan targets the weak, trying to stop the progression of the faith before it is solid. If you persevere through this part of your relationship with Christ, your foundation is stronger than it probably ever will be.

    General CommentAlso---this whole CD seems to be a cry of desperation, calling out to Christ. I like how he keeps the theme going for the most part of the CD.

    General CommentI love this song. I bought it out of pure curiousity and decided to just check it out. It is, in fact, a very powerful song. For me, personally, I think this song means someone (could be a guy) is using this certain person...maybe even a demon, if you will. And, they're saying like, "I don't want you here anymore. Why don't you go away? I didn't do anything to you. Let go of me." He's (or she) trying to escape this...person/thing. I can really relate to this song at this time in my life. Excellent lyrics.

    General CommentThis song is about Demon like Wishing brought up. The ultimate Demon the Devil. Red is a Christian band so from that its a lot easier to understand the whole song. I Love this song. It holds a lot of weight for me and a lot of Christians in this world.

    General Comment^Most religious songs can be taken that way too. If Red wasn't a Christian band than it could easily be taken that way. Though as they are a Christian band then this song is more appointed towards Satan and such.
