Let Things Go Lyrics


by . From Ordinary Days.


CLAIRE
How does this happen? All your life
You think the space youíve got is not enough.
But then you open your closet door and think,
ďMy life must be more than the sum of this stuff.Ē
Something moves you from within.
Like, say, your boyfriend moving in.
And thatís how you begin to let things go.
You look up at that shelf and you tell yourself to let things go.
And next thing you knowÖ..

You are standing amidst your whole entire history
And youíre strewing it across the floor.
Youíve got out-of-date planners and dog-eared postcards
And think, ďWhat in Godís name was I keeping these for?Ē
Packed in boxes just in case
But now I really need the space
So Iím gonna clean this place and let things go.
Iím determined to clear out some room in here and let things go.
Iím letting it go

All of these years and years of junk and flotsam
Plastic souvenirs, why, look, Iíve got some.
Birthday cards, a pamphlet on Van Gough
I shouldíve done this years ago.

But somehow Iíve been petrified
To see whatís been kept inside these chests and drawers
Itís so very strange finding stuff from a lifetime ago
Even when the life you find is yours.
ĎCause there are things that make you feel
That you need this proof your past was real.
And you canít let them go
So back into boxes they go
Oh

How does this happen?
You tear up your apartment just to put it back together again
Jason will be fine
Weíll get creative with our space so that all of our things fit together and then
My whole life can stay in there
Well, heís got to put his shoes somewhere
Ugh! Why canít I be some other Claire
Who can just let things go?
I mean, I said I would try and I did
But I canít let things go
You know Martha Stewart, Iím not her
Iím gonna let things go back where they were.

[Thanks to Dana Jayne for lyrics]
