lyrics

All the Mothers and the Fathers, the Sisters and the priests
Well they've all got my number - it's the number of the beast
But their devils chill my spirit
I'm shivering with cold
Am I becoming bitter?
Maybe I'm just growing old?
Growing old...

(The Letting Go)

So I try to spit the poison out
I want to exorcise the ghost
I want to stay with you forever
In this cottage by the coast

And we'll walk down down to the water
We'll laugh, we'll shout and we'll run
'Cos my heart is like a picture of everything we've done.
Of everything we've done

(The Letting go)

Sometimes we reap a bitter harvest
Sometimes freedom's filled with pain
Sometimes I wonder will these battered hearts
Will they ever love again

Then suddenly a signpost
Oh it's written much too clear
Behind the madness and all the morals
It's just the Letting Go we fear

The Letting Go
It's the Letting Go
The Letting Go we fear
Behind the madness and all the morals
It's just the Letting Go we fear

So let's walk down to the water
And we'll laugh and we'll shout and we'll run
'Cos my heart is like a picture of everything we've done

(REPEAT)

It's the Letting Go , the Letting Go we fear
I'm gonna whisper in your ear
It's the Letting Go we fear
