"Let It Be" as written by and Robert Card....
All she’s got is the way he looks
Many miles on the other side
He had overheard her choice
And he'd delve off a cliffside
Sacrifice he just wants to help
Holds the world like a baby
Takes his mask off and lulls his head
Then she sees him in the screen

They both see the traps
No fool, oh no oh
They won’t go back
No fool, oh no oh
They’ve got a mind track
No fool, oh no no
It’s all a mystery
Let it come and let it be

Oh oh

They both see the traps
No fool, oh no oh
They won’t go back
No fool, oh no oh
They’ve got a mind track
No fool, oh no oh
It’s all a mystery
Let it come and let it be

Let it come and let it be
Let it come and let it be
Let it come and let it be
Let it come and let it be

They've got a mind trap
Got a mind trap
Got a mind trap
Got a mind trap
Got a mind trap

They both see the traps
No fool, oh no oh
They won’t go back
No fool, oh no oh
They’ve got a mind track
No fool, oh no oh
It’s all a mystery
Let it come and let it be

Let it come and let it be
Let it come and let it be
Let it come and let it be

    MemoryIt is about two people that found each other online thousands of miles apart. They fell in love though they never should have. She shared a special connection with this mysterious man that she never felt with anyone ever again. They were talking in a video chat about meeting for the first time even though the people in their lives would be angry. They get into an argument and stop talking both of them hurt although they will never admit it to each other. It's been over four years now.

    I am happily married now, but I still think about a guy named Ben. This song...was our story.

    My InterpretationBeautiful. Just beautiful.

    Blackmill is an artist when it comes to captivating feelings such as love, friendship, life-related questions and generally mystic subjects.

    This piece of art must be one of his best accomplishments as an artist and I salute him for releasing this spectacular song.

    The song to me is about a pair who are going through a tough time. Living far apart and don't think this relationship was a good idea due to the distance between them.

    I can't help but feel this may be a story out of Blackmill's life, since he comes from Scotland which typically is filled with mountains, highlands and whatnot. The song highlights features like "cliffside" and "many miles on the other side" - Does 'other side' mean across the waters in Scandinavia, France or some place else? We can only guess, but to me this song says something about Blackmill's own life and the traps of distance relationships.

    My InterpretationThis song is really calming but it is also very mysterious.
    On one hand, it sounds like there's a long distance relationship ending over a Skype call. The first two stanzas describe two lovers far away from one another and the boy/man "overhears" her choice( which is to leave him). By the third stanza, they say ," they won't go back" meaning they're done with each other.

    That or their relationship is starting and they're afraid to do it and the future is just full of mystery.. Instead of [him] overhearing about [her] leaving the relationship, [he] finds out that [she] is interested in him. "He had overheard her choice/ And he delve off the cliffside", meaning he's so happy he went off the edge. When it get's to the chorus, " They both see the traps.../ They won't go back/... They've got a mind track/...it's all a mystery/...Let it come and let it be" it talks about how they foresee problems with the relationship but they're going through with it anyway.

    In summary, it's either two things ( in my opinion of course) : it's either a breakup or the beginning of young love.

    Song MeaningAll she's got is the way he looks sitting many miles on the other side sounds like a long distance relationship ending on video chat and she ended it and as passionate as his feelings were for her he "delve off the cliff side" also "takes his mask off and Luls his head, then she sees him in the screen to me is mysterious yet another hint at suicide over this girl..

    This song is beautiful in everyway and yet very mysterious and we may never know the true meaning which makes it even more unique❤

    P.s. "let it come and let it be" maybe he doesn't want us knowing the meaning;)

    General CommentLyrics like these are very poetic and dont necessarily need to be taken literal. You can create a story with this far more sureal. I am a philisopher so i look at this as a window into the soul. Thats just me though. The mind is full of traps. Traps you put in yourself to prevent you from breaking barriers. Prevent you from finding a way to the other side. You need two sides looking at eachother for that to work but they both see all the traps. Mystery is the fact that there is doubt and the traps are there... he wants to jump off and hold the world like a baby. He is on a fools journey to take care of the world and share love with it like his own child so he went into his mind to seek the inner strength of creation to do that.
