At first I was a Catholic girl
Loved the mass; I watched the swirl
Of smoke from candles burning
While Mary looked up, yearning
I got confirmed and I confessed
I really felt that I was blessed
Plus, I loved my uniform
So did the boy who lived next door

But something changed
When I became of age
And all those things I thought were true
Someday I'd break the big taboo of

Letting go of God
Letting go of God

Then I turned my mind to the East
The Himalayas calling me
Sitting under the Bodhi Tree
Trying to feel something
I came back home, I wouldn't let go
So much more for me to know
I read the Tao of Physics
And all those quantum mystics

But something didn't feel right
The arguments weren't all that tight
And all those things I thought were true
Someday I'd break the big taboo of

Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God

First it was hard and a little bit dark
Then I relied on my brain and my heart
I think we could try and change our faith
And love life and celebrate

Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God (Letting go of God)
Letting go
Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God
Letting go of God (Letting go, letting go, letting go of God)
Letting go of God
Letting go of God
