"Let It Go" as written by Jeremy Brian Penick, Ryan Bradley Burchfield, Daniel S. Noonan and Gordon Charles Heckaman....
We get a little faded the colours go
Running out of all our clothes
And the flash don't light when the battery's low

When you could stamp a foot down through the floor
It's a better plan by far
To blow off the roof and let in the dark
So we better get started

And if I were you, I'd let go
And feel it all over inside like a chemical
'Cause to tell the truth
I don't know
If it's ever over

We don't need a cure for the weight of the world
'Cause it's floating round in the universe
Just swing it like it's tied by a string that you hold
And let it go

We could dig a hole right down into
Somewhere as deep as black and blue
And fill it with a crowd and the sound of right now

And we could carve a tunnel under
And find out just how low it goes, it goes
And we run out of dirt on the other side when we see the light

Well if I were you, I'd look up
And find a place there in the sky where there's room enough
To spread it out, and look 'round
For where to land when you come down

We don't need a cure for the weight of the world
'Cause it's floating round in the universe
Just swing it like it's tied by a string that you hold
and let it go

Let it go

Let it go

When you could stamp a foot down through the floor
It's a better plan by far
To blow off the roof and let in the dark, let in the dark, dark, dark
So we better get started, started, started
Yeah we better get started, started, started

We don't need a cure for the weight of the world
'Cause it's floating round in the universe
Just swing it like it's tied by a string that you hold
And let it go

Let it go
Let it go
Let it go

    Song MeaningI think this song is saying that we don't need to carry the weight of the world. Rather than get angry when we can't cope - just 'let it go'.

    Lyric CorrectionLet it go

    We get a little faded the colours go
    Running out of all our clothes
    And the flash don't light when the battery's slow

    When you could stamp a foot down through the floor
    It's a better plan by far
    To blow off the roof and let in the dark
    So we better get started

    And if I were you, I'd let it go
    And feel it all over inside like a chemical
    Cos to tell the truth I don't know
    If it's ever over

    [Chorus]
    We don't need a cure for the weight of the world
    Cause it's floating round in the universe
    Just swinging like it's tied by a string that you own
    Let it go

    We could dig a hole right down into
    Somewhere it's deep as black and blue
    And fill it with a crowd and the sound of right now

    And we could carve a tunnel under
    And find out just how low it goes, it goes
    And we run out of dirt on the other side when we see the light

    And if I were you, I'd look up
    And find a place there in the sky where there's room enough
    To spread it out, ?
    To ? when you come down

    [Chorus]

    Let it go
    Let it go

    When you could stamp a foot down through the floor
    It's a better plan by far
    To blow off the roof and let in the dark, let in the dark, dark, dark
    So we better get started, started, started
    Yeah we better get started, started, started

    (Chorus)

    Let it go
    Let it go
    Let it go

    My OpinionThis song is simply about letting go of thing that don't matter relative to the scope of the universe. She's able to say don't sweat the small stuff here on earth (like not having clothes or your phone dying) when you look up at the night sky and realize how small these problems are.
