Feist – Let It Die lyrics

Let it die and get out of my mind
We don't see eye to eye
Or hear ear to ear

Don't you wish that we could forget that kiss
And see this for what it is
That we're not in love

The saddest part of a broken heart
Isn't the ending so much as the start

It was hard to tell just how I felt
To not recognize myself
I started to fade away

And after all it won't take long to fall in love
Now I know what I don't want
I learned that with you

The saddest part of a broken heart
Isn't the ending so much as the start
The tragedy starts from the very first spark
Losing your mind for the sake of your heart
The saddest part of a broken heart
Isn't the ending so much as the start

    I think this song's meaning is pretty clear - being in a relationship that isn't right, but not knowing what's wrong with it, because you used to love them, and in some ways you still do. But things aren't right. And how sad it is to realize the mistake you made by staying with it. Not to mention abandoning reason and clear vision for the chance of something more, of romance.
    This song breaks my heart. And also makes me feel like I'm not the only one who's lost her mind for the sake of the heart.

    This song describes my relationship that would have ended much sooner had my mother's lawyer and my older brother had not broken the laws. Since they did break the laws and changed my life overnight, they prolonged my relationship caused by constant shocks. Series of traumatizations,. "IT WAS HARD TO TELL JUST HOW I FELT TO NOT RECOGNIZE MYSELF I STARTED TO FADE AWAY". That kept me occupied in staying sane and living to the hilt without losing sight of love, memories of love from my parents that kept me presently strong and fearless in the face of wrath from lawyers, judges, bankers, & traitorous relatives, and the present kindness and goodness from few people all the time utilizing the incomplete justice as challenges to overcome, enhancing the coping skills and valuable knowledge worthy of writing a book of the truth of an ancient Audism still corrupting Estate Probate Courts throughout a free country called the United States of America. What a life I have led! All the Beautiful People. Love, glory, electrifying clashes with adversaries, power, hate, betrayal, triumphs, hope and victories! My parents and only sibling, (older brother) died within 3 years of each other, leaving me all alone, a Deaf female at the age of 44 and still alone in a prolonged marriage in a state of shock that finally began to wear off on the 13th year I began to drift away as long as he kept drinking and kept on abusing till I turned 55 5 months later It's Christmas Day I took the leap. On Christmas Day and never looked back. Suddenly it's two thousand eight. Summer's here now. And it's not even over. Ah haaaa. Ohh. Oh. What a glorious feeling. Tears that never end. Standing in the rain soaking up the rain how hard it rained still I stood there in the rain. Lightening 'n thundering and again and furiously as if God is telling me to get out of the rain now! . Standing on the porch now, hands on the metal deck roof feeling the vibration of the furious battering of the raindrops. I leaned over balcony rain pouring over my head, shoulders and arms spread out. Running down my back into the inside of my pants. Crazy breezes hitting me from every direction. Oh what a glorious feeling. Tears running down my cheeks. All alone in the universe. Here I am. In the flesh.
