The Wailin' Jennys Lyrics

Hey, maybe the time
Just wasn't right to hang on
When are you gonna learn
Sometimes things turn instead of turn out

Hey, when are you gonna stand
Stop looking over your shoulder
Me, with a head full of words
And not one useful expression
Hey, let go

We, with holes in our hearts
Were whole at the start
Our story began
We film ourselves 'til the end
Try to suspend our lives in the dark

Hey, when are you gonna stand
Stop looking over your shoulder
See, there's a sun in the sky
And a moon that will take us til morning
When are you gonna stand
Stop and begin this moment
Hey, let go
Let go (will we be the ones to understand?)

As a chronic worrier, this song speaks to me so much.  I have to keep reminding myself to just live in the moment, just BE.  This song is a beautiful reminder.  Thanks, Nicky.


@Matt Quinlivan Thanks. I totally forgot I made this comment, but I think that the key is to learn how to live in the now. Because now is really all you have. Also, remember that external circumstances don't matter -- just how you interpret them, what meaning you assign to them, and how you react to them matters. Try to just keep in a state of internal joy no matter what might be going on around you. I'm not a master of that by any means, but I'm learning.

You didn't ask, and I'm not giving advice, just saying, though I quit drinking 35 years ago I still practice the principles of AA's 12 steps. Helps tremendously with my anxiety and worry, and many other challenges.
