“Let it Fall” lyrics

Have you been trying too hard
Have you been holding too tight
Have you been worrying too much lately
All night
Whatever we’ve lost
I think we’re gonna let it go
Let it fall
Like snow
‘Cause rain and leaves
And snow and tears and stars
And that’s not all my friend
They all fall with confidence and grace
So let it fall, let it fall
Have you been carin’ too much
How this one ends
Y’know it’s not the kind of fight
That you lose or WIN
When you’re down so low
You feel the imprint of the ground
On skin
Look around
Breathe in
‘Cause rain and leaves
And snow and tears and stars
And that’s not all my friend
They all fall with confidence and grace
So let it fall, let it fall

 

Bio

As Over the Rhine, Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist have released a fistful of lush, literate, and critically acclaimed CDs and were voted by critics and peers to Paste Magazine’s list of 100 Best Living Songwriters. Their most recent (and fifteenth) studio album, Meet Me at the Edge of the World, came out in 2013. The two live in rural Southern Ohio, where they own a farm that inspires their songwriting. They have said that their first musical influences can be traced back to Hee Haw and gospel music, though their music now reflects American folk and blues roots. Their music seeks to provide an avenue for people to respond to the big questions of life, death, God, and memory, and the Glen Workshop has welcomed them as faculty for many years.
