lyrics

Letting Go - Chelsea Davis & Ana Sanchez

The peach hour slips through my fingertips
The sun lets out a sigh and makes my heart cry
The golden day turns like this maze we wander through
Wondering who will find us when her light is gone

She sings beyond the horizon
With her gold sequin dress spread out like a fan
Her beauty shimmers effervescent
Wisps of rays trailing behind her in the sand

Oh sister sun, as you’re bending low
Tell me why you go
Tuck me in to bed
Kiss my cheek then turn your head
Shadows enfold
You whisper, “let go...”

One last kiss goodbye---a lipstick stained sky
She flashes a smile & walks out in style
Her glory goes to shine on other faces now
We’re left all alone to dread the night’s descent

She lights the world with her fire
Then leaves her children in the cold
They cry but she can’t hear them calling
Hands lift them from the cradle, fear takes hold

Oh sister sun, as you’re bending low
Tell me why you go
Tuck me in to bed
Kiss my cheek then turn your head

Oh sister sun, as you’re bending low
Tell me why you go
Nightmares on the wall
Creeping down the hall
You disappear and whisper, “Let go.”

Sister sun, off to one more show.
