When to Let Go

Chorus: How do I know when to let go? Why is the fear that holds me here? Where is the love that'll set me free? When will I be me? A happy little girl walked down the lane, The day was clear and cold She spotted a diamond snake in the grass and picked it up to hold She saw the diamonds glitter so fine, the rest of its skin was gold The snake it bit her in the side the way it was foretold Chorus ‘You knew what I was when you picked me up’--But the girl was innocent She dropped the snake back in the grass; it never did repent The wound healed over out of sight and left her double-bent And the poison trickled through her veins for there was no way to vent Chorus The years went by and joy slipped out replaced by fear and hate Till one day a healer happened by and he knew it wasn't too late He saw the scar that left the mark that she thought was her fate He opened the wound and let it drain the poison of that snake Chorus Every day the poison came draining from her side And while she changed the bandages tears fell from her eyes Then one day the bleeding stopped, the sun came out to shine She saw the healer in her heart, it always was inside. Now I know when to let go Gone is the fear that held me here Come is the love that has set me free Now that I am me [repeat]
