Let It Go
Alexandra Burke Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Sometimes life seems impossible
When our dreams just fade away
We get caught up in the little things
Lose ourselves along the away

Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go
Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go

Time can be the perfect remedy
Let love the lead the way
So feel your heart, let it show
Give it just a little more
Come on baby, bring back the light

When life is hard, let it fly
Put your hands up to the sky
Come on baby, bring back the light

Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go
Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go

Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go
Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go

Switch it up, come on make you worth it
Gonna live life our own way
Yeah that struggle is trouble
But so much beauty along the way

Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go
Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go

Time can be the perfect remedy
Let love the lead the way
So feel your heart, let it show
Give it just a little more
Come on baby, bring back the light

When life is hard, let it fly
Put your hands up to the sky
Come on baby, bring back the light

Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go
Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go

Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go
Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go

Come on baby, bring back the light

Switch it up, come on make you worth it
Come on make you worth it

So feel your heart, let it show
Give it just a little more
Come on baby, bring back the light

When life is hard, let it fly
Put your hands up to the sky
Come on baby, bring back the light

Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go
Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go

Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go




Let it go, go, go, go
Let it all go

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Alexandra Burke's "Let It Go" serve as a reminder to listeners that life can be difficult and that it's necessary to let go of things that hold us back. Burke's usage of repetition helps to emphasize the importance of releasing the weight that we carry. The lyrics convey to us that it is okay to be vulnerable and to let our emotions show, even if it means that we must confront our fears. The chorus "Let it go, go, go, go / Let it all go" emphasizes that the best way to move ahead in life is to let go of our inhibitions and fears and take a leap of faith.


In the second verse, Burke encourages listeners to accept life's imperfections and to find beauty in the struggle. The phrase "Switch it up, come on, make you worth it" serves as an empowering message that allows listeners to believe in themselves and make the necessary changes to live their lives on their own terms. The song's bridge encourages us to show our hearts and to allow love to lead the way. As she sings, "Give it just a little more / Come on baby, bring back the light," Burke urges us to move forward with hope and faith, even during hard times.

I literally heard this song for the first time on drag race uk Vs the world, it's such a bop, why did I never hear this on the radio when it came out 10 years ago ? It's so good

@Camilo Corail call me insane, but I remember this playing where I went at the time of release, which is why I said that. I don’t know about charts, tho

Camilo Corail

@Raul Albuquerque Paraná It wasn't it was a flop along with the album. Which is actually a crime, blame the lack of promotion this era had.

So glad Drag Race used this amazing song for the lip sync! One of my favourite songs from 2012! Justice for this song! Such a bop! Alexandra Burke is so talented and deserves the recognition she has a great catalogue of songs & albums! My favourite artist to come out of X Factor! Can't believe it's been 10 years since this came out! Takes me back to being 19 I love the music from 2010-2013 especially my era ❤️

PavlinS

I found it there too!!!

Antor Berrguilar

Thank you Drag Race for bringing me a Gem of a song! Alexandra Burke deep dive here I go! Love this song <3

Asher Miller

This album needs to be re-released physically with the deluxe tracks (Devil In Me and Beating Still) and this mix of Let It Go. This album is a brilliant uptempo house/dance pop record and deserved so much better success. Alexandra can slay any genre but she puts soul into dance music!

Justice for Heartbreak On Hold
