Let It Happen
Tame Impala Lyrics


It's always around me, all this noise
But not nearly as loud as the voice saying
"Let it happen, let it happen (it's gonna feel so good)
Just let it happen, let it happen"

All this running around
Trying to cover my shadow
A notion growing inside
Now all the others seem shallow
All this running around
Bearing down on my shoulders
I can hear an alarm
Must be morning

I heard about a whirlwind that's comin' 'round
It's gonna carry off all that isn't bound
And when it happens, when it happens (I won't be holdin' on)
So let it happen, let it happen

All this running around
I can't fight it much longer
Something's tryna get out
And it's never been closer
If my take-off fails
Make up some other story
But if I never come back
Tell my mother I'm sorry

I will not vanish and you will not scare me
Try to get through it, try to bounce to it
You were not thinkin' that I will not do it
They be lovin' someone and I'm not that stupid
Take the next ticket to take the next train
Why would I do it? And you wanna think that

(I will not vanish and you will not scare me)
(Try to get through it, try to bounce to it)
(You were not thinkin' that I will not do it)
(They be lovin' someone and I'm not that stupid)
(Take the next ticket to take the next train)
(Why would I do it? And you wanna think that)

(I will not vanish and you will not scare me)
(Try to get through it, try to bounce to it)
(You were not thinkin' that I will not do it)
(They be lovin' someone and I'm not that stupid)
(Take the next ticket to take the next train)
(Why would I do it? And you wanna think that)

Baby, now I'm ready, moving on
Oh, but maybe I was ready all along
Oh, I'm ready for the moment and the sound
Oh, but maybe I was ready all along
Oh, baby, now I'm ready, moving on
Oh, but maybe I was ready all along
Oh, I'm ready for the moment and the sound
Oh, but maybe I was ready all along

I rewatched this music video and realised something, that I already knew, and it had already bugged me for so many years but it feels like I finally have the answer that I need which was obvious from the start, I just didn't ever think deeply about this video.



It's the fact that this "one" pill keeps this guy alive, it is the reason why he doesn't get heart attacks. The pill is the "material" that keeps him alive in this world. Without being alive, he obviously wouldn't be experiencing anything. It's actually very interesting once you start to think deeply about it. We think about life as the most important thing, because obviously, it is the only thing that we will ever live in - without it, we wouldn't be existing in the first place. Anything that we do, feels so important to us. But I just had a feeling that, whether I'm writing this comment, taking a walk outside on a good day, or showering, or anything really - is not important, at all. In the end, I am going to die. I put too much effort into things, (and you do too!) while it is good, I should also sometimes allow myself to relax. And just "let it happen" without putting myself through so much stress and anxiety. Also, these lyrics are very deep too. "Tell my mother I'm sorry" - Hell yeah. But does it even matter? Yes, to your mother, it does! Because she is still alive, existing - experiencing sadness. But to you, it doesn't. In the end, you are gone. Forever. And, that's scary. Because you will be experiencing death on your own, without the help of anyone else. And you had your self identity your entire life, and once you're dead, it's like, so what, you were just one of these people. Alive, breathing and one day you're gone. None of your self identity matters anymore, neither does your face, or how your body looks. You were just one of us. A living thing who will eventually die. We all know we are going to die one day. But, that doesn't make it any less scarier. Must be the WORST feeling ever, to know you are never going to exist again, while you are experiencing death. It's all over in the end. No one will be there with you. You are the one experiencing your own life, and your own death. The loneliness, should it even matter? I was already lonely! =) (Lonerism reference) It was your life, and now it's over! This video made me feel so many strong emotions at once. I love Tame Impala.

I also want to mention that I found my old comment on this video - it was 5 years ago, I was 16 and I commented "I am feeling alive". But right now, as a 21 year old, I am not feeling so alive after rewatching this video and I just wanted to share my thoughts with others. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Now I am not so alone!

The answer is to let it happen. Experience whatever you are experiencing, just, let it happen.. =) But your life is worth so much more, never forget that. Never put yourself through so much stress. Remember that you are a living thing, and you need to take care of yourself, nothing is more important than you <3 Some things are so simple, yet we think it's the most complex thing ever. It's not. Just relax.

EDIT: Sorry I reread this comment and realised I repeated some things a bit too much, like "death" I'm not a native speaker, and I kinda wanted to point out how absurd it is to just "die" or to "exist" to begin with.. :c But, at the same time, the absurdity of the situation is what makes life, AND YOU, so so so special. HELL YEAH, WE ARE HERE, WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WE ARE DOING. What the hell is a universe and why did we happen to *exist*!!! Also, I can't believe this comment got 170 likes, and so many people actually read and replied to it!!! :') I hope everything turns out just fine for you. I understand what you're going through, I really do. Existing is such a strange thing to experience, isn't it? Well, it's the only thing we got, like I said, so give yourself some time to relax. You got this. And in fact, while we are alone in the "death" experience, we are still not the only one to experience it. Millions of people experienced it too, and we will too. So maybe that will calm you down a bit. :') Love you, take care.

Let It Happen Lyrics
[Verse 1]
It's always around me, all this noise
But not nearly as loud as the voice saying
"Let it happen, let it happen (It's gonna feel so good)
Just let it happen, let it happen"

[Chorus 1]
All this running around trying to cover my shadow
A notion growing inside, now all the others seem shallow
All this running around bearing down on my shoulders
I can hear an alarm, must be morning

[Verse 2]
I heard about a whirlwind that's coming 'round
It's gonna carry off all that isn't bound
And when it happens, when it happens (I won't be holding on)
So let it happen, let it happen

[Chorus 2]
All this running around, I can't fight it much longer
Something's trying to get out and it's never been closer
If my take off fails, make up some other story
But if I never come back, tell my mother I'm sorry

[Bridge]
I will not vanish and you will not scare me
Tryna get through it, try to bounce to it
You were not thinkin' that I will not do it
They be lovin' someone and I’m not that stupid
Take the next ticket to take the next train
Why would I do it? And you wanna think that

[Outro]
Baby, now I'm ready, moving on
Oh, but maybe I was ready all along
Oh, I'm ready for the moment and the sound
Oh, but maybe I was ready all along
Oh baby, now I'm ready, moving on
Oh, but maybe I was ready all along
Oh, I'm ready for the moment and the sound
Oh, but maybe I was ready all along, oh baby

Kevin Parker made a statement summarizing the whole song, "finding yourself always in this world of chaos and all this stuff going on around you and always shutting it out because you don't want to be part of it. But at some point, you realize it takes more energy to shut it out than it does to let it happen and be a part of it." This song and quote changed my entire life.

@brenchtoast44 the only way to live. respect

brenchtoast44

@ajdbabd Makes sense if your brain isn't completely calcified. World's shit, that's why I don't lean into it too much. Gotta have a balance of everything

ajdbabd

@brenchtoast44 Its less about resisting the world and more not resisting the nature of reality itself. It's about having an equilibrium between your id and your ego and existing in the in between, in the middle. Where it's not too cold, not to hot, just right. Leaning too much into the inner or outer self exacerbates suffering. Just dumb stoner ramble, have a good night Jerry.

Everytime I go to an airport I have to play this in the headphones and walk around extremely anxiously

and then you realize you are not trying to catch a flight, instead you need to wait 2 hours for your flight.
