About This Song


Tyler Simmons and I sat down with Murray Daigle and Tyler and I came up with the idea for this conversational narrative song. Its really about a boy who just cant see the light and let go of his girl - despite the writing being on the wall smile

Feedback Requested


Does the song grab you at all and can you relate to it. I am still a young writer and I write what I am thinking or feeling - which I am guessing can be both good and bad.

The production in the first few seconds definitely grabs me! It has enough variety within the first thirty seconds to promise a vibrant and diverse track.

Your voice is GORGEOUS. I love how colorful and rich your sound is.

AHHHHH the explosion into the chorus was perfect. I love this.

Also, this is catchy as hell. Well done. I don’t feel like it’s completely done yet…it’s lacking just a smidge of intensity in the chorus. Maybe a really bright bassline?

Thanks Wonder smile  - I really appreciate your comments, and I agree.  I think the song could complete more of a story and resolve, and another person I respect a ton said that the chorus needed to hit harder.  I am going to work on that for sure!!! Thanks again

Verse 1
Listen, please don't get me wrong
Im sorry but I cant do this
I dont know why you fail to see

Pre-Chorus
Cant you see that all I'm needing
is a little room for breathing
Your holding on
Your holding on...

Chorus
You got to You got to
Let it go let it go

You got to
Let it go let it go let it go
I wish you see you gotta save yourself

You gotto
Let it go let it go
You gotto
Let it go let it go let it go
Why cant you see you gotta save yourself.

Verse 2
Listened to what you've had to say
It doesnt change my mind at all
I dont think you understand
Ive gotta do whats right for me

Pre-Chorus
Chorus

Bridge
Im sorry you feel decieved

You'll thank later for me this

Chorus
You got to
Let it go let it go

Let it go let it go let it go
I wish you see you gotta save yourself

You gotto
Let it go let it go
You gotto
Let it go let it go let it go
Why cant you see you gotta save yourself.
