lyrics

LET ME GO

That vague, crepuscular time, the time of regrets that resemble hopes, of hopes that resemble regrets, when youth has passed, but old age is not yet arrived.
– From Father And Sons, Ivan Turgenev

Say your "goodbye" and I'll fly away to the moon,
Don't ask me "why?," 'cause I've got to get away soon.
Just let me dream,
'cause it takes the pain away when I know I could be somewhere. . . Anywhere.

All of my life I have watched my dreams come and go,
And all of my life I have tried to learn what you know.
Still I am young and there may be time for me, time for me to just. . .
Go somewhere.

I'm beating on the fortress door,
I'm crying to the guard.
I'm bleeding and my bones are broken.
I can't believe it's real.

Well I could leave this great facade,
I could sneak out through the back.
But look up there, they're laughing.
Oh I can't believe it's real,
I want to go somewhere.
Let me go. . .

Say your "goodbye" and I'll fly away to the moon,
Don't ask me "why?," 'cause I've got to get away soon,
Still I am young and there may be time for me,
time for me to just . . .
