There are times
When love soaks you to the bone
'N then those moments leave you wonderin'
If you'll lose your mind or lose control

Life is nothing without love
Love is nothing if not freedom

They tell me the gates of hell
That you shake 'n you rattle
Are secretly locked from inside

Chorus:
You hope 'n pray you'll find
The one thing on your mind
Not until you know
The Art of Letting Go
'N it may seem to be
Defying gravity
That's because they know
The Art of Letting Go

You may think
You built a present perfect world
And you may wonder to yourself
Does anyone really know what else could ever matter?

But the Man with His hand
On the hammer
Wears a velvet glove

Does the rich man know he's poor?
Does the beggar care for much more than survival?

When you look into the eyes of children laughing
Do you remember who you were?
Or who you are?

Life is nothing without love
Love is nothing if not freedom

They tell me the gates of hell
That you shake 'n you rattle
Are secretly locked
From inside

Chorus

You hope and pray you'll find
A love to last all time
Not until you know
The Art of Letting Go
And it may seem to be
Defying gravity
That's because they know
The Art of Letting Go

You're dying to believe
In love eternally
Not until you know
The Art of Letting Go
And it may seem to be
Defying gravity
That's because we know
The Art of Letting Go

You can't go through it
Without going through it
'Til it goes through you
'Til you know the truth
