I heard Tim sing this song last week at his concert I attended in St. Louis and it really impacted me.

So often, negative things that happen to us, whether currently or in the past, are the things that we hold onto, and these are the very things that we need to let go. Whether it be forgiving ourselves, or someone else, freedom comes when we let it go. Take a listen and let it go – whatever  that is today.

I’ve been caught sideways out here on the crossroads
Tryin’ to buy back the pieces I lost of my soul
It’s hard when the Devil won’t get off your back
It’s like carryin’ around the past in a hundred pound sack

Today, I’m gonna keep on walkin’ I’m gonna hold my head up high, gonna leave it all behind
Today, I’m gonna stand out in the rain Let it wash it all away, yeah, wash it all away
I’m gonna let it go, oh yeah I’m gonna let it go, oh yeah

Skeletons and ghosts are hidin’ in the shadows
Threatening me with all the things that they know
Choices and mistakes, they all know my name
I’m through holdin’ in and holdin’ on to all that pain

Today, I’m gonna keep on walkin’ I’m gonna hold my head up high, got no more tears to cry
Today, I’m gonna stand out in the rain Let it wash it all away, yeah, wash it all away
I’m gonna let it go, oh yeah I’m gonna let it go, oh yeah

And I know, I know, I know, I know I been forgiven I know, I know, I know, I’m gonna start livin’

Today, I’m gonna keep on walkin’ I’m gonna hold my head up high, I’m gonna leave it all behind
Today, I’m gonna stand out in the rain Let it wash it all away, yeah, wash it all away
I’m gonna let it go, oh yeah I’m gonna let it go, oh yeah I’m gonna let it go, oh yeah, oh yeah
