Our darkness is important, to be treated with respect
For us to be reborn, then we must also honor death
Only illusion keeps us separate, moon in east and sun in west
Soon we'll leave these bodies, releasing all that we thought we possessed

Letting go, letting go
A return to what the soul already knows

Through the softened edge of sorrow, though the patches, frays, and pulls
With life seeping through the cracks of every fracture, every hole
Through what loves and leaves us, though we grieve it, mystery calls us close
Finding solace in these bodies, how our heartbeat guides us home

Letting go, letting go
Learning to embrace the ebb and flow

Oh, great spirit
Formless dancer
Teach us to trust
Love beyond fear
Oh, i hear your call

Through dark and light, our shadows can remind us we're alive
Yet our mind's eye takes to worry when the sunset's done each night
And just as fire tears through treetops, burning each down to the bone
After that tragedy, our sacred earth still remembers how to grow

Letting go, letting go
Strip the layers so the spirit shows
