lyrics

LAREDO

we lost the train through old Laredo yesterday
you turned your back on the tracks while I held on to those words you said
just let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go whichever way

how dare you run away from all that promise
it's apropos of all the things that we have left behind us, all we'll ever know
just let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go whichever way

your kisses haven't felt like this is honest, your breath is held at bay
wild as the dream I'll never catch and you would sooner chase
just let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go whichever way

I don't know if it's over
right now, this is all that I can say
just let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go whichever way

i'll write the same old song of sorrow the same way
you know the one where this old town can't show them shelter and I can't get away
just let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go whichever way

i see that shallow sheltered promise i proposed falling gently passed a trembling crescent right off your nose
just let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go whichever way
I don't know if it's over
right now, this is all that I can say
just let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
just let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go whichever way

we lost the train through old Laredo yesterday
you turned your back on the tracks while I held on to the words you said

just let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
just let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go whichever way
