"Let It Happen" as written by and Jonathan Mark Foreman....
This life feels hollow and mostly borrowed
The voices are screaming but where is the meaning?
Noisy crescendos behind closed windows
The floor is a ceiling, I can't find the feeling
Oh, tell me, love, tell me
Am I dreaming, and where is the meaning?
Oh, tell me, love

Let it happen, let it happen
Tomorrow knows what tomorrow knows
You can't make it get here sooner
Let it happen, let it happen
I don't hold what the future holds
But I know You're my future

The fever is breaking, my body is aching
What's worth defending if everything's ending?
The current is endless, the river relentless
Love, tell me, love
Oh, am I dreaming, and what is the meaning?
Love, tell me, love, tell me

Let it happen, let it happen
Tomorrow knows what tomorrow knows
You can't make it get here sooner
Let it happen, let it happen
I don't hold what the future holds
But I know You hold my future

Let it happen, let it happen
Tomorrow knows what tomorrow knows
You can't make it get here sooner
Let it happen, let it happen
I don't hold what the future holds
But I know you're my future

    General Comment"I'm a control freak. I spend most of my time professionally obsessing over
    details, and changing and rearranging lyrics and the melody. I know what it's like to desire that semblance of control, and want to fix and change I think I bring that into a lot of areas, it might be unwanted and unhelpful."

    "That song for me, I love the fact that it kicks of the record because it feels like an invetation for the listener to allow this album to sweep over them and to intervene with the eyes of wonder, rather than the eyes of the cynic. I feel like children are really good at letting it happen. There's a trust and a surrender in that process. And for me, late at night I go down to the beach and I sit on this one rock and I pray and meditate and think and I feel like I'm reminded of how small I am."

    "Wether or not I'm choosing to let it happen, its happening. The universe is happening all around me, the stars, I have no control over their patterns. I can either choose to fight it and brace myself against it or I can embrace the love that I'm being offered. For me, that's what the song us about."

    "I think there's a parallel with surfing, where you can choose what you do on the face of the wave but you can't change the wave itself. You can choose what you're doing and how you're dancing in the life you've been given, but there's wisdom in knowing that there's things you change and accpeting them." -- Jon Foreman
