Let It Go Lyrics

on Amazon Music

From walking home and talking loads
Seeing shirts in evening clothes with you
From nervous touch and getting drunk
To staying up and waking up with you
Now we're slipping near the edge
Holding something we don't need
Oh, this delusion in...

    It's about him and his parents.

    I think its that both people know its not working anymore and they need to let it go and move on but don't want to, they want to be together and for it to work but deep deep down they know it wont ever work like that.

    I️ think this song shows how broken the two ppl are with each other and yet he is still broken without her but he knows it’s right to let her go. Like someone else said leave the broken pieces where they are and carry on because they are two different ppl when they are together and aren’t good for each other

    He's the delusional one
    .if he has to ask to leave a relationship by saying, let's leave it to the breeze.. Obviously, What comes around, like the Wind, Will Return. All he is going is trying hard to convince himself it's over.. When in fact it isn't.

    Let It Go lyrics said it all.

    Someone said that it's a breakup song where both of them find themselves becoming two different people while they are together. like, sometimes you don't even recognize or know who you are anymore in a relationship that just doesn't work. the first verse is just about how when it was good between them but all other versus suggest that it isn't that way anymore. sometimes when you're in a relationship with someone, you start mentally sabotaging it by thinking the worst (like if they are flirting/cheating with others, not who you thought they were, etc.) and it eats at you. i think that's what he means when he talks about the delusions. i think when he says "why don't you be you and i'll be me?" is him saying that they should go their separate ways so that they can feel like themselves again and not in constant hurt and misery because of their relationship. "...leave it to the breeze" is him saying that there isn't any use in trying to fix it. just leave the broken pieces where they are and carry on. he's finally ready to move on and wants her to, too. i think he still cares a lot about her, but he realizes that they've lost too much of themselves and they'll keep doing so if they stay together.
