let it in lyrics – sam roberts

“let it in”

take me back to valhalla
i don’t wanna fight with you no more
there was a time i was a warrior
and i knew who i was dying for
she was born in a cemetery
she was anything but ordinary
i’m torn and my body’s weary
i only hope that she has mercy on me

to the sea with all of us
let the deep wash over us
to the sea she’s calling us
you and me gonna turn to rust
in the sea with all of us
let the deep wash over us
to the sea she’s calling us
let the cities all turn to rust
in the sea

she said she knew with the first kiss
that the man don’t match the myth
that the truth can’t beat the wish and
oh! how the man don’t match the myth
ashes to ashes, cheek to cheek
she looks at me and my knees go weak
struck dumb, too dumb to speak
ashes to ashes, cheek to cheek
water is water and rocks is rocks
my baby took me down to the docks
and all i heard was them ticking clocks
sayin’ water is water and rocks is rocks!

to the sea with all of us
let the deep wash over us
to the sea she’s calling us
you and me gonna turn to rust
in the sea with all of us
let the deep wash over us

to the sea she’s calling us
let the cities all turn to rust
in the sea
you can’t win if you don’t let it in
oh no!
you can’t win if you don’t let it in
oh no!
it’s no sin starting over again
it’s no sin starting over again

ashes to ashes, cheek to cheek
she looks at me and my knees go weak
struck dumb, too dumb to speak
ashes to ashes, cheek to cheek
water is water and rocks is rocks
my baby took me down to the docks
and all i heard was them ticking clocks
sayin’ water is water and rocks is rocks!

to the sea with all of us
let the deep wash over us
to the sea she’s calling us
you and me gonna turn to rust
in the sea with all of us
let the deep wash over us
to the sea she’s calling us
let the cities all turn to rust
in the sea
you can’t win if you don’t let it in
oh no!
you can’t win if you don’t let it in
oh no!
it’s no sin starting over again
it’s no sin starting over again
