on and off and
on and off
the light switched places
with the shadow
and we lost power

sweet and sour
sweet and sour
turns out “he loves me not”
is the last petal
on the flower

hot and cold and
hot and cold
the water drops are
falling from the tap
out of synch

open close and
open close
I locked the doors
and shut my eyes
but can’t make you leave
my head

let go slow down you’re holding fast
let go move on you’re holding still

close and far and
close and far
the details magnified
we lost sight
of the bigger picture

win and lose and
win and lose
the race we ran
repeats again
but the record’s broken

plus and minus
plus and minus
reciprocals
became mixed fractions
and we divided

happy sad and
happy sad
sometimes good things
happen to us
disguising themselves
as bad

let go slow down you’re holding fast
let go move on you’re holding still

remember the best
forgive and forget the rest

let go slow down you’re holding fast
let go move on you’re holding still

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song!

    I'm thinking that it's about a girl who broke it off with her lover, they were drifting apart. She can't get him out of her mind at first, but she eventually realizes it was a good thing in the end.

    General CommentI like this song, too. It has such a peaceful, dream-like feel to it. She makes it sound so easy to just let go and move on. I love it, though because it inspires me to just live and let be. The video is beautiful, and the song is, too. In the end, we all have our loves and they eventually end. All we have left is just to move on :) Be thankful for the time you had with that certain person and move on!
