Lyrics

You say you're drowning in your head,
A raging river of regret,
Lost in mem'ries from long ago -
Let go....let it go.

You can change the script or change the cast.
There is no way to change the past.
Why carry such a heavy load -
Let go....let it go.

(chorus)
Every sunrise offers new highs,
Hope and promise - open up your eyes!
Heal your heart and free your soul -
Let go....let it go.

Happiness is a choice you make.
It's yours to give, it's yours to take.
Put aside what you can't control -
Let go....let it go.

(chorus)
Every sunrise offers new highs,
Hope and promise. Open up your eyes!
Heal your heart and free your soul -
Let go....let it go.

Put on the glitter, your party face.
It's time to get back in the race.
The past is out of your control -
Let go....let it go.

Ooooo....let go....let it go.
Mmmmmmm.....free your soul. Let go.
Free your soul! Free your soul! Free your soul!
Let go.....
Oooooooo.....Let go....let it go.
