Jacqueline Gordon This album just makes me feel happy about life. Let It Go is absolutely positive and hopeful, and yet it's never shallow or overly idealistic. Somehow, when I listen to "It Will Not Always Be Raining," no matter what situation I'm in, I believe it. Thanks for sharing your gifts, Tyler! Favorite track: It Will Not Always Be Raining.

Sarah Guth The lyrics to It Will Not Always Be Raining are beautiful. No others words could possibly describe it. No other words are needed. Favorite track: It Will Not Always Be Raining.

tardyangel Such a pretty song. Listening to this song feels like a prequel to Hello My Old Heart & I Have Made Mistakes. I'm very happy to have happened across Tyler's music. Favorite track: It Will Not Always Be Raining.

not long ago I saw a girl come walking down the road she stopped me with a smile that sent a shiver through my bones she knew my name before I had the chance to say a word she said it was my lucky day and offered me the world "tell me what you want, and I will grant your wish all the hours you've searched, I will transfer them back into your account," she said "it's easy; but yours is not to question but to sign your life away" yours is not to question, yours is not to question yours is not to question, but to sign your life away (God, please God, won't you save my soul) now here am I, and there are you a devil in disguise grinning like a demon only inches from its prize I've heard the devil steals your soul and locks it in a box or melts it in a lake of fire and drinks it on the rocks "all fairy tales," the girl replied, certificate in hand "this offer is benign and innocent, please understand!" "it's safe, it is secure, and it is easy; but yours is not to question, but to sign without delay" yours is not to question, yours is not to question yours is not to question, but to sign your life away the devil will take any form to bring you to your knees an angel on the surface, but a serpent underneath his venom coursing through your veins, hour after hour, stirring up your pain until you fall under his power the road to hell is long, but it is soft beneath your feet no warning signs to rouse your mind out of its apathy it's comfortable, it's pleasant, and it's easy (God, please God, save my soul)

escape into a fantasy don't disturb me we give until our hearts give out if not sooner we give sooner or later black shadows under tired eyes I've been better we lie awake as hours roll by how much longer? we sleep sooner or later a light deep down inside our bones shines eternal and after we have left our homes where you lead us, we will follow we will fear no evil

who are you hiding from? you said, "I'm hiding from the Beast" where is it coming from? you said, "it's coming from the sea" you say he comes with the red sun, comes with a loaded gun you'd better keep your head down, turn your tail and run who do you think you are, cowering in defeat? why are you so afraid of the nightmares in your sleep? who are you hiding from? and why are you so afraid? bury it in the ground and there, let it sleep because the deadliest enemy is not the world, or the Beast we are the red sun we are the loaded gun you'd better keep your head down turn your tail and run the deadliest enemy is our self

run outside with your Sunday best on leave behind your blues with your mama chasing after you yelling, "you forgot your shoes!" but your feet don't mind the feeling of the pavement on the ground the sticks and stones could break your bones but they couldn't keep you down oh, I remember how it was a fire burning in your blood brave like you've never been since oh, I remember being young from my skin down to my bones I didn't want to be grown and you know I'm not alone every day was a way to conquer the world you were living on the edge, you were living in a whirl and fear was just a friend who kept you on your toes and then just like that you lost your nerve you got all caught up in what you deserve but that excuse is getting pretty old it's been so long but someday we'll find it

spiderwebs on the walls of a cathedral starting to fall broken down concert halls and there's nothing we can do they were beautiful when you made them but as time goes by, you leave them all behind try so hard to forget you grow up, you grow apart you were king of the hill 'til you were shot through the heart it's over; leave it behind you now we are not what we have, but the things we give away we are not what we know, but the things that we let go they were beautiful when you made them but everything will fall apart with time they were beautiful when you made them but you're holding yourself down by holding on they were beautiful but you're holding yourself down can't stop the world from turning can't stop the world from turning 'round

well I pay more and I get less less than the day before I sleep more and get less rest less than the day before the cost of living rises a little more than the day before oh, pain and heartache doubt and worry fear and apathy and hate these are the things I can do without this is the price I refuse to pay and the cost of living rises the cost of living rises the cost of living rises every day but I won't pay it, no

now I hate to be a jerk and this is probably going to hurt but our situation merits a word when you come in here crying and whining and moaning about the mess that you're in that you richly deserve it's like something inside you that burns and drives you to live like a king born destined to rule so I hate to be cruel and just sit here and laugh but you were the one saying we were the fools HEY OH NO you did this to yourself well you rambled and gambled and burned all your money on women and imported wine spent every penny that you ever owned then you tried to start burning through mine lived on the edge, with one foot in the grave and made peace with God every day said, "every penny you save is a penny you waste" and money's just paper, so you threw it away we're living like we've got all the time in the world

back to the wall you've got me in the corner saying all the things that are going to get you up in arms going to get you raising the alarms it's been coming on for days it's looking like there's nothing left to save we pushed and shoved too hard we bent 'til we broke our hearts you've got two barrels of hot lead ready and aiming at my head tell me what you want, maybe we can work this out nobody's coming out of this alive we've got so much left to fight for cut to the quick you walk soft, but you're carrying a stick big enough to break my world apart big enough to break my heart nothing left to say it's not like you'd listen, anyway there's nothing to change our minds nothing to make it right this time we've got too much left to live for too much left to fight for to go down fighting each other now forgive and forget oh, you've got to let it go, let it go let it go

I've heard it said that home is just a word and words are just the refuge of a cowardly man I've heard that home is just the house that you grew up in a building that was built by someone else's hand some people try to find a home and take it but I believe that home is where you make it and I am still coming home I still haven't found the place where I belong I've traveled the world seen a thousand suns rise but I refuse to lay down and die I'm still coming home people will say that I am just a dreamer and dreams are nice but someday you've just got to settle down but settling is just another word for surrender and I will not surrender 'til they bury me in the ground and if home is where the heart is my home is with you and where my treasure lies is the look there in your eyes if home is where the heart is then I'm coming home to you

it won't always go how you want it to go but the flower needs the rain just as it needs the sun to grow there will always be something that's beyond your control but you'll never live 'til you let it go don't you give up on me now, we've got too far to go and your life isn't over until you say it's so there will always be someone who will love you, then lay you low but you'll never live 'til you let it go no, it won't always go how you want it to go the rain will surely find you and the sun will come and go but it will not always be raining seasons change, people grow and you'll never live 'til you let it go pain and heartache all your doubts, all your worries all your fear and apathy your hate and jealousy you've gotta lay them down gotta bury them in the ground 'cause you'll never live 'til you let it go you'll never live 'til you let it go

about

TYLER HEATH is a singer-songwriter hailing from southern Texas. His influences include artists like NEEDTOBREATHE, Switchfoot, Coldplay, and Mute Math.

This album is the result of a year of songwriting dealing mostly with a lot of personal struggles and successes I've had in that time. I've learned a lot while recording these songs, but the one lesson that's stuck with me the most is that you've got to Let It Go.
