'Let It Be' marks Trinity Richter's second time ever in a recording studio and our first collaboration. I'm blown away by how well she sings at such a young age and look forward to working with her on future projects. Ground-up production you'll hear is all thanks to the amazing, Jay Battle (Qreepz). Enjoy and please share!


From walking home and talking loads
To seeing shows in evening clothes with you
From nervous touch and getting drunk
To staying up and waking up with you

But now we're slipping at the edge
Holding something we don't need
All this delusion in our heads
Is gonna bring us to our knees

So come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me?

Everything that's broke
Leave it to the breeze
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me?
And I'll be me

Here I lay all by myself
Exhausted from the fight last night entailed
While lying right here, I don’t like myself
Feeling guilty for how I rebelled

Things went from unsullied to such an ugly brandishing of cutlasses
Turning a home where comfort lived into exploding muskets
Its war out here and winter’s here to stay
The earth trembled as our snowy globe began to shake

If only we had just let it go and drifted away
To the sleep we need on any given day, it wouldn’t be this way
Persistence played a score of tired trumpets
Stubborn pride’s too hard to swallow without iron stomachs

I used to recognize myself
It's funny how reflections change
When we're becoming something else
I think it's time to walk away

So come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me?

Everything that's broke
Leave it to the breeze
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me?
And I'll be me

The mirrored image was a farce
We confused what we saw as real reflections in the dark
Perceptions skewed our intentions to depart
From reality, undoubtedly a death sentence from the start

Unsurmountable needs expressed from our hearts
Brought defeat and lead retreat seamlessly, tearing us apart
I’ve let her know, I’m letting her go
"I’ll leave you be" reads the note I leave loose leaf-lessly

Willows weep with me when I’m betrothed to my own devices
Regretful weakness shows as I write this. Why’s it like this?
Once the snow came, muskets did bust
Splaying windows broke all hope and trust, we’re both ones to blame

It’s just the war waged when there’s no owning up
No one wins their side by slamming doors, finger pointing broken trust
With nothing to show for it besides simply showing up
Sometimes dividing’s the best digress for the good of those you love

Everything that's broke
Leave it to the breeze
Let the ashes fall
Forget about me

C’mon let it go
Just let it be
Why don’t you be you
And I’ll be me?
And I'll be me
