My heads in my hands my hearts on my sleeve
We say we're in love but I don't believe
That it's true anymore and it's time to admit
We've got choices to make to love or to quit
Fooling ourselves about the way that we feel
We've been pretending our troubles aren't real
And it's time to let go 'cause we can't control
The ways of the world or the workings of the soul

There's love on the line and family and friends
We've got to be sure that this is the end
Of the life that we've known since we were so young
And promised ourselves that we'd never come
To this parting of ways this fork in the road
There's no turning back when love has grown cold
It's time to let go 'cause we can't control
The ways of the world or the workings of the soul

     The soul knows what it needs
     Sometimes that's hard to believe
     When the winds of change are baring down
     All you want is some solid ground
     The soul knows.....the soul knows
     And we can't control the workings of the soul

There are rivers that run deep down inside
Everyone we can't help but ride
The currents that threaten to pull us apart
Carried along by the force of a heart
And when it finally breaks through the dam that you've built
Out of all of the fear and all of the guilt
It's time to let go 'cause we can't control
The ways of the world or the workings of the soul
