Let Me Go Let Me Go Let Me Go
Jason Molina Lyrics


Wait behind
Wait behind
Wait behind

Shadows still with us
The tides are with us
Silent sorrow with us
As long as there’s no forgiveness
Wait behind
Owl above places of the dead
And I have to believe everything she said
As long as there’s no forgiveness
Wait behind
Hymns still close to your ears
That you can still hear
Graves still close to the water
Moon still walking the shore
That mule’s head still in the sycamore
Waiting behind
Let me go, let me go, let me go
So I can wait behind

It’s Easier Now

Behind these eyes a desert spirit
Sea serpent heart inside a sunken ship
I finally got it
All parts wrong
I didn’t know how long it would take to do it
Behind these eyes
Dead grey mule
Torn apart moon in an empty room
It’s easier now
And I just say I got better
It’s easier now
That I just say I got better
It’s easier when I just admit
Death comes now
And the next minute
the next minute (x2)
Behind these eyes (x5)

Everything Should Try Again

You don’t forgive the silence for not speaking up
No matter how hard we’re trying it’s not hard enough
Your eyes before the lightning to meet it by yourself
You’ve been tired and a little sick
You’ve been trying to work with it
You drew your grave on every single map
You don’t plan on staying long
You plan on burning it
No matter how wrong it went
You don’t have much more room to forget (x2)
You don’t forgive even the lightning
For leaving you
But everything should try again
Even you
You followed the train through every prarie dawn
Said “I’d like to see Ohio one more time before it’s gone”
You had your hands up high in a prayer to crush your heart
And every single heart
Was that eight point star
Ever been tired
Ever been a little sick
Ever tried working through it

Alone With The Owl

Alone with the owls howling “pain, pain, pain”
Alone with the owls howling “pain”
Alone with the owls howling “pain, pain, pain”
You don’t have to live this way

While I lived was I a stray black dog (x2)
While I lived was I anything at all
Did I have to live this way
I stood beside the ocean not a single wave
Beside the ocean not a single wave (x2)
Not a single left to say
With the owl howling “pain, pain, pain”
With the ocean howling the same
With my life howling the same
Did I have to live this way

Don’t It Look Like Rain
The dark outside the world
I think it looks like rain
Don’t it look like rain (x2)
I wait for nothing now to change
I don’t think nothing now is gonna change
The wolf outside my door don’t need
Anymore of my blood
Of my bood
She don’t wait for nothing
nothing anymore
She’s watching for nothing anymore
Moon above my light
Starts fading out (x3)
I live for nothing anymore (x2)
I live for nothing

Some Things Never Try

Great bird come down and give me back my old life
And I’m sure I’m nothing in it
All those years had to darken me on every single side
Til every part of me was a place to hide
Some things never get better
Some things never try
Pain in my heart finally running me out of my life
Some things do nothing but try

It Must Be Raining There Forever

Shadows signal to the rest of the dark
Hold up the pain (x2)
Shadows signal to the rest of the dark
Hold up all the pain
I want to see where this all starts
Show me any two eyes that don’t believe in the dark
I’d like to see them try to hold back the stars
Night wind and the cross road and the blue ghost’s name
All start with danger
The letter danger
Look in my eyes and see if it’s still true
It all used to
With all that blue that you carry around in your heart
It must be raining there forever
With all that blue that you carried around in your heart
It must have been true

Get Out Get Out Get Out

Something must have happened to both of us
Something must have happened
Something always does
Something must have told you “burn the bridges then the ???”
Something always told you to do it
I lived low enough so the moon wouldn’t waste it’s light on me
What’s left in this life that would do the same for me
Something must have only loved one of us
To say “Get out, get out, get out
Get out, while there’s still something left of us
Get out, get out, get out” (x2)

It Costs You Nothing

It’s gonna be a long time (x2)
Til I’m back on the line
And it’s gonna take a whole life
It’s gonna take a whole ‘nother life
To get it right
If the truth don’t hurt
The truth don’t work
It costs you nothing
That’s what it was worth
It’s gonna be a long time (x2)

Let Me Go Let Me Go Let Me Go

Wait behind (x3)
Shadows still with us
The tides are with us
Silent sorrow with us
As long as there’s no forgiveness
Wait behind
Owl above places of the dead
And I have to believe everything she said
As long as there’s no forgiveness
Wait behind
Hymns still close to your ears
That you can still hear
Graves still close to the water
Moon still walking the shore
That mule’s head still in the sycamore
Waiting behind
Let me go, let me go, let me go
So I can wait behind

"it's easier now" is probably one of the most deep/sad/beautiful sounds that those ears have already heard. That album is wonderful piece of art. Thanks Jason. You are still one of my favorite artists :')

whetlands

Listening through the albums in release order has been absolutely heartbreaking. Hearing Jason go from "try and try and try" to "let me go" is one of the most depressing transformations I've seen in a person, and knowing now how he ended is enough to make a man weep. Thank you for everything, Jason.

Socio Logie

diffucult indeed when you know what he was going through during that time, and for another few years. Heartbreaking. Are you read Max Blau's long piece in the Chicago Readeron Molina: https://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/jason-molina-songs-ohia-magnolia-electric-co-secretly-canadian/Content?oid=15163643.

It’s Easier Now

Behind these eyes a desert spirit
Sea serpent heart inside a sunken ship
I finally got it
All parts wrong
I didn’t know how long it would take to do it
Behind these eyes
Dead grey mule
Torn apart moon in an empty room
It’s easier now
And I just say I got better
It’s easier now
That I just say I got better
It’s easier when I just admit
Death comes now
And the next minute
the next minute (x2)
Behind these eyes (x5)

Everything Should Try Again

You don’t forgive the silence for not speaking up
No matter how hard we’re trying it’s not hard enough
Your eyes before the lightning to meet it by yourself
You’ve been tired and a little sick
You’ve been trying to work with it
You drew your grave on every single map
You don’t plan on staying long
You plan on burning it
No matter how wrong it went
You don’t have much more room to forget (x2)
You don’t forgive even the lightning
For leaving you
But everything should try again
Even you
You followed the train through every prarie dawn
Said “I’d like to see Ohio one more time before it’s gone”
You had your hands up high in a prayer to crush your heart
And every single heart
Was that eight point star
Ever been tired
Ever been a little sick
Ever tried working through it

Alone with the owls howling “pain, pain, pain”
Alone with the owls howling “pain”
Alone with the owls howling “pain, pain, pain”
You don’t have to live this way

While I lived was I anything at all
Did I have to live this way

Beside the ocean not a single wave (x2)

With the owl howling “pain, pain, pain”
With the ocean howling the same
With my life howling the same
Did I have to live this way

Don’t It Look Like Rain
The dark outside the world
I think it looks like rain
Don’t it look like rain (x2)
I wait for nothing now to change
I don’t think nothing now is gonna change
The wolf outside my door don’t need
Anymore of my blood

She don’t wait for nothing

Some Things Never Try

Great bird come down and give me back my old life
And I’m sure I’m nothing in it
All those years had to darken me on every single side
Til every part of me was a place to hide
Some things never get better
Some things never try
Pain in my heart finally running me out of my life
Some things do nothing but try

It Must Be Raining There Forever

Shadows signal to the rest of the dark
Hold up the pain (x2)
Shadows signal to the rest of the dark
Hold up all the pain
I want to see where this all starts
Show me any two eyes that don’t believe in the dark
I’d like to see them try to hold back the stars
Night wind and the cross road and the blue ghost’s name
All start with danger
The letter danger
Look in my eyes and see if it’s still true
It all used to
With all that blue that you carry around in your heart
It must be raining there forever
With all that blue that you carried around in your heart
It must have been true

Get Out Get Out Get Out

Something must have happened to both of us
Something must have happened
Something always does
Something must have told you “burn the bridges then the ???”
Something always told you to do it
I lived low enough so the moon wouldn’t waste it’s light on me
What’s left in this life that would do the same for me
Something must have only loved one of us
To say “Get out, get out, get out
Get out, while there’s still something left of us
Get out, get out, get out” (x2)

It Costs You Nothing

It’s gonna be a long time (x2)
Til I’m back on the line
And it’s gonna take a whole life
It’s gonna take a whole ‘nother life
To get it right
If the truth don’t hurt
The truth don’t work
It costs you nothing
That’s what it was worth
It’s gonna be a long time (x2)

Let Me Go Let Me Go Let Me Go

Wait behind (x3)
Shadows still with us
The tides are with us
Silent sorrow with us
As long as there’s no forgiveness
Wait behind
Owl above places of the dead
And I have to believe everything she said
As long as there’s no forgiveness
Wait behind
Hymns still close to your ears
That you can still hear
Graves still close to the water
Moon still walking the shore
That mule’s head still in the sycamore
Waiting behind
Let me go, let me go, let me go
So I can wait behind
