Let Him Fly Lyrics - Patty Griffin

Review The Song (1)

Ain't no talkin to this man
Ain't no pretty other side
Ain't no way to understand the stupid words of pride
It would take an acrobat, and I already tried all that so
I'm gonna let him fly

Things can move at such a pace
The second hand just waved goodbye
You know the light has left his face
But you can't recall just where or why
So there was really nothing to it
I just went and cut right through it
I said I'm gonna let him fly ooh yeah ye yeah

There's no mercy in a live wire
No rest at all in freedom
The choices we are given it's no choice at all
The proof is in the fire
You touch before it moves away, yeah
But you must always know how long to stay and when to go

And there ain't no talkin to this man
He's been tryin to tell me so
It took awhile to understand the beauty of just letting go
Cause it would take an acrobat, I already tried all that so..
I'm gonna let him fly
I'm gonna let him fly fly oooh ohh
I'm gonna let him fly fly ooooooohhhhh oooo.
I'm gonna let him....fly.

beautiful lyrics-clear and crisp sound | Reviewer: amanda | 8/3/2006

The clear and crisp sound of Patty's voice resonates through your soul. Her simple guitar accompanying her adds to this haunting sound -- you almost need to close your eyes to really feel it. And the lyrics...wow. If you ever had to let someone you love go, but you did everything to hold on to him/her before you were forced to do so, you'll feel as though this song was written for you. I think I've been playing this song on repeat even before I ever heard it... It's an incredible gift when you find a song like that.
