Exhale

I struggle with the concept of letting go. I have been wrestling this more as of late because there a lot of things that I hold on to because of the fear of what comes next. I often have a pessimistic way of looking at things. I have a hard time trusting happy endings, which is something I am trying to shake myself of. Is the fear of what comes next a good reason to hold on to something just for the sake of holding on to something? The "right" answer would be to say no, but that isn't the answer I find myself [wanting] to say. I started writing "Exhale" last summer, after a long songwriting drought, it's my attempt at letting you in to a side i haven't had the courage to share with many. The song comes from a place of wrestling with letting go of an unrequited love. It's still a work in progress so the lyrics are subject to change but the pre chorus & chorus are pretty permanent cause I haven't been able to find something I am quite happy replacing them with. I hope we can sing them together and help each other remember that letting go is sometimes the best thing we can do regardless of how uncertain the future is.

Take a look at what we've become, trading blows to pass the time.

Aint it funny, how easily we separate.

I miss the space where we let everything go, just to get back where we started from

But

Here I go again, Making excuses for why I keep falling in love, with you. x2

 

I just keep falling, I can't keep falling, I just keep falling in love with you. 

I can't keep falling, I just keep falling, I can't keep falling in love with you.

 

Step 1, Take all that you left me with.

Step 2, Wonder what I really meant to you.

Step 3, Was it ever really worth it.

Step 4, Forget that you were all I had.

Help me forget that you were all I had.

Why can't I forget that you were all I had.

Well

Here I go again, making excuses for why I keep falling in love with you. x2

 

I just keep falling, I can't keep falling, I just keep falling in love with you. 

I can't keep falling, I just keep falling, I can't keep falling in love with you.
