If it’s meant to be
Baby oh just let it be, let it bee
Don’t go beating dead horses,
Keep steady your course, you’ll see
Sing our lullaby, all things impossible in being nice
Dreams don’t take to your soul, it’s the only thing no one can take

Chorus:
And if you don’t know, I’ll tell you
Just take down your load and wipe your frown
If you’re holding on to dead weight it’s just holding you down
Oh you’re gonna sink or swim, you better let it go now
Let it go now

Hear my lover’s side, lying on a nothing set in black and white
Oh but as I get older, each moment means more than the last
So I say we waste our time on cigarettes and cheaṗ red wine
We’ll sing well into the night, that light will be coming up fast

Chorus:
And if you don’t know, I’ll tell you
Just take down your load and wipe your frown
If you’re holding on to dead weight it’s just holding you down
Oh you’re gonna sink or swim, you better let it go now
Let it go now
Let it go now

Chorus:
And if you don’t know, I’ll tell you
Just take down your load and wipe your frown
If you’re holding on to dead weight it’s just holding you down
Oh you’re gonna sink or swim, you better let it go now
Oh, let it go now
Let it go
Let it go
Let it go
Oh, let it go now
Let it go now
If you don’t know I’ll tell you
