Pearl Jam – Let It Ride lyrics

Let there be no misconception
This girl is collecting
Not without circumstance, but
Not a victim, defenseless
She’s delicate, defiant
Weary, tells no lies (Weary tales, no lies?)
Just proud acceptance

She’s gonna, she’s gonna
Gonna let it ride

She’s gonna, she’s gonna
Gonna let it ride

Like a book with no ending,
Read backwards to beginning
She stands on edge with lifted wings
Prepare to ascend
What she’s asking for
Is promises no more
She’s through depending

She’s gonna, she’s gonna
Gonna let it ride

She’s gonna, she’s gonna
Gonna let it ride

Tears will be alright (arrivin’?)
Death can’t be denied
There will goodbyes
But she’ll never leave ya (your?)
Clear and conscious mind
Accept she’ll decide
Law must step aside
Let the end bring her freedom
Break her body’s chains
Move (love?) without the pain
Look she signs her name, look around her eye will be there (or I will be there?)
Look around, she’ll always be there
