There's a weight that I've carried
For some time
An old familiar burden
Always on my mind
And I cling to it tightly
And drag it all around
And when the water rises
It holds me down
Now the key to my salvation
Is lying on the bed
Her shoulder is the pillow
Where I rest my head
And she sighs
And draws me in near
Puts her hand on my face
As she whispers in my ear

Let it go
Let it go
Let it drop and fall away
Just turn and let it lay
And it will be alright

So I went into the kitchen
And I grabbed a plastic bag
Began to fill it
With everything I had
A thousand love letters
In an old shoe box
Calenders and notebooks
And all my clocks
And I went up to the roof
Wrapped it up neat
Held it off the edge
Ten floors above the street

And I let it go
I let it go
I let it drop and fall away
Just waiting for the day
That it would be alright

Now the key to my salvation
Is standing at the door
Umbrella and a raincoat
Suitcase on the floor
And she sighs
Like the falling of the rain
Puts her hand on my face
Before she turns away

And I let her go
I let her go
I let her turn and walk away
Now all I do is pray
That it will be alright
