Some people say "Don't go away just stay right here"
Some say "If you stay at home you're gonna wind up alone"
Now you know you can't go two different
ways you can't believe everything you hear
And if you always do just what you're told
hen you've got no mind of your own

So if each man has a different plan let 'em go let 'em go
You have a power all your own
There's a spirit child inside you ready for life and I know
It's just waiting to see how you will grow
And when the spirit feels the need to wander let it go


Sometimes they say the only way is to really sing that song
Sometimes they say you're singing that way too loud too long
And if they can't make up their minds then I think I'll make up mine
Whatever way I feel is the only way I'm gonna sing that song


And if people don't seem to like it that's O.K. let 'em go
Some day they'll sing a song of their own
'Cause there's a spirit child inside them ready for life and I know
It's just waiting to see how they will grow

And when their spirit feels a need to wander I'm sure they'll go

Some people said "Try this,it'll make your smile"
Some said "Don't touch it, you end up crying"
Well it felt so good for a while but then I saw too many dying
When all they wanted to do was get a little higher
So if the game won't follow through let it go let it go
And leave the loaded dice alone
'Cause there's a spirit child inside them ready for life and I know
It's just waiting to see how they will grow

One too many-users lose it all
Then there's no one-no one to help then break the fall
People just like you who say "Oh no that won't be me"
End up face down-is that where you wanted to be

So if it's going to bring you trouble let it go let it go
Remember that doesn't mean you'll be all alone
'Cause there's a spirit child inside them ready for life and I know

It's just waiting to see how you will grow

    MemoryWhat an amazing woman, what an amazing song, what an amazing message. There's not one time that I listen to this song that I don't feel like singing along at the top of my lung.

    Maybe that's why we adults tend to fuck things up, because we never embrace our inner child spirit and letting it go. This song conveys a simple yet complicated message, and in doing so, looking at the world in the view of an innocent child - those simple things that can make you happy: to go explore and open your minds to possibilities, to be free and not be afraid to be opinionated, to not give a shit, to not be selfish and to learn to let go.

    Oh and some drug references in the.. Wait, is this song about drugs?
