Song#: 6

Album
Name of Song: Let them be

Let them be,
They know not what seems to be gripping them.

Let them be,
They don’t see what’s controlling their life.

Let them be,
They dare not disobey those incessant urges.

Let them be,
They live life the best they can.

Chorus
This is not a swan song of failing people,
This is what you and I go through,
Just because we choose to ignore these hauntings,
Does not mean they aren’t in our view.
______

Let them be,
They just want to be happy.

Let them be,
They sometimes choose to be left alone.

Let them be,
They prefer to love everyone.

Let them be,
They think they live only once.

Chorus
This is not a swan song of failing people,
This is what you and I go through,
Just because we choose to ignore these hauntings,
Does not mean they aren’t in our view.
______

Let them be,
They aren’t who you want them to be.

Let them be,
They aren’t your hopeful dreams.

Let them be,
Their body is not your body.

Let them be,
Allow them life the way they want.

Chorus
This is not a swan song of failing people,
This is what you and I go through,
Just because we choose to ignore these hauntings,
Does not mean they aren’t in our view.
______

Let us be,
We love in our own way.

Let us be,
We all come to our very own sense.

Let us be,
We all do what we feel is right.

Let us be,
We all come from who we are.

Chorus
This is not a swan song of failing people,
This is what you and I go through,
Just because we choose to ignore these hauntings,
Does not mean they aren’t in our view.

______

Let him be,
He knows what he knows right now.

Let her be,
She knows what she’s always known.

Let us be,
We are who we always are.

Let us be,
We are who we’ve always been.
