Description
This is a song that's been in progress for about 14 months, and I finally finished it up. It's a piece I made to describe some bad feelings that people can have in their heads sometimes, and I can relate to some of the ones I wrote about in this song. But rather than being a depressing suicidal piece, I went for a hopeful cheerful sound, where the chorus of the song talks about just letting go. If you're like me at all, you can know how it feels to get wrapped up in obligations and the stress of it all and take it out on yourself mentally, and you can forget that sometimes you need to just chill and not worry and let it go. The tracks of this song were inspired by Colbie Caillat's "Fearless," a beautiful but bittersweet song about love. I loved the combination of the simple hip hop beats and piano and the emphasized yet lovely vocals, and I wanted to make something like that. So I went with it and slowly over time created I piece I feel is very personal and beautiful. I hope you enjoy it!

(Also, if you get the chance, you should really look up that Colbie Caillat song. It's really good! I loved it so much I remixed it once. [My remix is uploaded somewhere on youtube. I think the same username as MacJams.])

Lyrics
I tell myself
I'm comfortable
With constraint
But I get sick
Of it
Everyday
I build my walls up
Only to tear
Myself down
Disregard luck
Defiance disallowed

Let it go
Let it all go
Cuz I know
I'm so much more

I pride myself
In being a
Control freak
Afraid that if
I'm not
I'll be weak
I close myself off
To leave my de-
-fenses on
Love's not enough
Content when they're all gone

Let it go
Let it all go
Cuz I know
I'm so much more

Let it go
Let it go
Let it gooo
Let it go
Let it go
Let it gooo
Let it go
Let it go
Let it gooo
Let it go
Let it go
Let it gooo

Let it go
(Let it go, let it go, let it goooo)
Let it all go
(Let it go, let it go, let it goooo)
Cuz I know
(Let it go, let it go, let it goooo)
I'm so much more
(Let it go, let it go, let it goooo)
Let it go
(Let it go, let it go, let it goooo)
Let it all go
(Let it go, let it go, let it goooo)
Cuz I know
(Let it go, let it go, let it goooo)
I'm so much more
(Let it go, let it go, let it goooo)

I'm so much more
Than they credit me for
So I'll be strong
And I'll prove them wrong

Let it go
I like the counterpoint between the bittersweet, introspective lyrics and the gentle, pure vocals, Jessica. The arrangement supports this feeling, too. Sounds like you have been working on this for quite a while. Well, it has definitely been worth the effort. Quality song and post. Thanks, Peter.

Don't know if this feels cheerful feeling.
Good performance! You should let me try some drums for this. That is the weakest part of this.

Hey Jess! I think this is your best song to date - I really like the piano (being kinda biased toward piano of course!) Your voice sounds terrific as usual, and those harmonies starting around 3:20 are VERY cool - love the "go, go go" very inventive vocal ideas. Way to go Jess - hope you're well!

I might have missed
this one if you hadn't put it up in the chat window. I agree with Karen this is the best of your songs I have heard to date. I haven't heard them all mind you, but this is a good one kid. I like the 60's feel it has and the harmony work with the back up vocal line does a fine job separating this from your other work. Fine work Jessica!

Peace

Simple
Wot, no dance beats?

Sweet song. Your vocals are great, the basic idea cool, but I'd cut a couple of those bass drum hits. Too busy, and it gets annoying. Also, handclaps went out somewhere in the late 80s :-)
