Let It Go

When the darkest night is over
And you've done all you can do
Turn your fears into believing
A new beginning is there for you

For every heartache you have weathered
Has added courage to your soul
And we can't find any answers
Until we give up all control

Keep this moment in your vision
Don't look behind or look ahead
For every failure and misfortune
Can be a starting point instead

Let go of all you cannot carry
Because you need new wings to fly
And there are smiles and even laughter
To dry up all those tears you've cried

Keep hope alive within this moment
It's really in your power to do
And God is still there in His Heaven
Providing love to see you through

If your dreams lie there in pieces
Don't let regret just overflow
Your heart needs a bit of mending
Just walk away and let it go

In three words I can sum up everything
I've learned about life: it goes on.
