About Let Me Go Now

There are certain stereotypes about love that we grow up with. One of them is the highly romanticised idea that love should last forever and you should fight with everything you have to keep a relationship alive. Even when that means giving up on other things. But reality is different, and I realised that very quickly when me and my friends started having relationships. I saw very toxic relationships held together only by that abstract concept „he’s doing this because he loves me“. I also saw beautiful relationships that just stopped working over time, and ended up being painful for everyone. I like to think that I will have the strength to let go of a relationship when it’s pushing me or my partner down instead of being good. But the thought is scary, and painful. That’s what „Let Me Go Now“ is about - letting go of someone you love because you love them. 

But taking it a bit further I like to extend that concept too friendships, ideas, hurt or fear. „Let me go now, I’m not afraid of falling down“ - let the things that weigh you down go. It’s not easy, and it can be really painful, but eventually it will set you free. 

The song was recorded in our home studio in Spain, except for the percussions recorded by Uli Pfannmüller in Germany and the piano recorded by Eric Bay in London. Uli actually used a big flower vase for the main percussion track. I was pretty impressed by it’s originality. Let ME Go Now started as an acoustic guitar based track, like most of my songs. Hence we wanted a change and asked Eric to play a piano track. He nailed it with his first track and everything fell into place.. 

„Let Me Go Now“ is the third single of my upcoming project „Prophecies and Silver Linings“. It’s a collection of songs I wrote while becoming an adult and learning about live. Letting go is one of the harder lessons for sure.

Lyrics

I just kissed your lips
But they weren't those I missed
They weren't even yours
The blue in you eyes
Used to keep me mesmerised
They don't shine anymore

We used to light a fire
With the spark of our desire
Where did that spark go?
When we danced others watched
When we kissed time stopped
But time goes so slow now

Let me go now 
I'm not afraid of falling down
Down down
We should go now
Before our fire's burned out
Out out

I'm tired of building a love 
That no one understands
Upon ghosts of the past
Of saying I love you babe
But it just doesn't sound the same
For our love didn't last

We used to light a fire
With the spark of our desire
Where did that spark go?
When we danced others watched
When we kissed time stopped
But time goes so slow now

Let me go now 
I'm not afraid of falling down
Down down
We should go now
Before our fire's burned out
Out out

Now it's time to go
For we don't exist anymore
So go  (Won't you let me go my love)
Before out memory dies
No more (Won't you let me go my love)
Worthless lies - Worthless lies

Let me go now 
I'm not afraid of falling down
Down down
We should go now
Before our fire's burned out
Out out
Let me go now 
I'm not afraid of falling down
Down down
We should go now
Before our fire's burned out
Out out
