"Let Him Fly." as written by and Patricia J. Griffin....
Ain't no talkin' to this man
Ain't no pretty other side
Ain't no way to understand the stupid words of pride
It would take an acrobat, and I already tried all that so
I'm gonna let him fly
Things can move at such a pace
The second hand just waved goodbye
You know the light has left his face
But you can't recall just where or why
So there was really nothing to it
I just went and cut right through it
I said I'm gonna let him fly

There's no mercy in a live wire
No rest at all in freedom
Of the choices we are given it's no choice at all
The proof is in the fire
You touch before it moves away
But you must always know how long to stay and when to go

And there ain't no talkin' to this man
He's been tryin' to tell me so
It took awhile to understand the beauty of just letting go
Cause it would take an acrobat, I already tried all that
I'm gonna let him fly
I'm gonna let him fly
I'm gonna let him fly

    General CommentJessica Simpson is my most favorite singer of all time. She is absoultely brilliant, whether some people think she is a dumb blonde with no logic, you would be surprised.
    If you listen to her songs, you will be amazed. The songs she writes have so much meaning, and inspiration, & will most likely bring you to tears. Her songs are so good that they bring out emotions in you. When ever I'm upset, or really need a break, I just listen to her music, it really soothes me.
    You can call me corny if you want, but I'm telling you, she is the best singer you will ever hear in your life.

    This one song, Let Him Fly, is basically about her getting over Nick Lachey. She realizes that she can't talk to him anymore, there is not use, that it is useless trying to get him to understand her. thats why she says "ain't no talkin to this man" because she can't talk to him, he doesn't get what she is trying to say. & its useless for him to understand her, because she is getting over him.
    The song pretty much tells about how she did all she could to make things work, and try to get better, but she realizes it's time to let go, shes "letting him fly".
    When she says "Ain't no way to understand the stupid words of pride, it would take an acrobat but I already tried all that," she is portraying that there is no way to understand what he is doing to her, or what he is meaning, there is no way for him to understand her either, because it would take an "acrobat" or something else besides herself to do it, but shes tried EVERYTHING to get him to understand, & he still doesn't. so she needs to let him fly. she needs to let go of the love they shared.


    This is an absolutely amazing, beautiful, brilliant song. It helped me through a break-up with my ex-boyfriend, & i realized that no matter how much i want him back, I need to let him fly, because theres nothing else I can do. I relate to this song very much. I love it.
