Rope Swings and Avalanches

from Long Night Moon

On rope swings and avalanches,
as with love we get our chances
And weve got to let go
Theres a deeper well, but were not drinking from it
And it hurts like hell to just be thinking of it
Ive got to let go, time to let go, you know

They say love is a gift and so we help ourselves
I dont know why
They say if its love you can work it out
Thats the cruelest lie.    

Whispers and confessions
These are the lovers obsessions
Ive got to let go
But you can still come to me, if you still need it
But not in confidence, not in secret
Ive got to let go, time to let go, you know

They say love is a gift and so we help ourselves
I dont know why
They say if its love you can work it out
Thats the cruelest lie.    

On rope swings and avalanches
As with you my love, we took our chances
Now weve got to let go, time to let go, to let go, got to let go
You know.
