Begin Again

You’ll learn to let things go

You cut your hair and plan your route

You sell your clothes and lock your room

You learn to pack only what you need

And leave the only town you know

You’ll learn to let things go

 

You’ll learn to let things go

You walk away

From arguments, people and opportunities

Because there are bigger fights to fight

And win

And you will

Begin again

You’ll learn to let things go

 

You’ll learn to let things go

You know

You’ll give them to a greater power

Knowing you’ve lost so much more before

You’ll recognise the loss

And be glad this time

It is not all you have got

You’ll learn to let things go

 

You’ll learn to let things go

You’ll cut them off

For a quiet life

You’ll pretend not to notice

The spaces and the aches

The ending of the calls

The lines around their eyes

The hearts that it will break

You’ll learn to let things go

 

You’ll learn to let things go

Where I could not

You’ll learn to let things go

People you want to forget

People you cannot

And yet you’ll find

Against your will

You’ll learn to let things go

All things do

All things must

Be laid to rest
