let him fly: dixie chicks/patti griffith

ain’t no talkin’ to this man
ain’t no pretty other side
ain’t no way to understand
stupid words of pride
it would take an acrobat
i already tried all that
i’m gonna let him fly

things can move at such a pace
the second hand just waved goodbye
you know the light has left his face
but you can’t recall just where or why
so there was really nothing to it
i just went and cut right through it
i said i’m gonna let him fly

there’s no mercy in a live wire
no rest at all in freedom
choices we are given
it ain’t no choice at all
the proof is in the fire
you touch before it moves away
but you must always know how long to stay
and when to go

ain’t no talkin’ to this man
he’s been trying to tell me so
it took a while to understand
the beauty of just letting go
it would take an acrobat
i already tried all that

i’m gonna let him fly
i’m gonna let him fly – fly
i’m gonna let him fly – fly
i’m gonna let him fly
