Cage the Elephant “Ready to Let Go” Lyrics

 

Sun went down, sun went down over Pompeii
On both sides the vow was broken
Oh my my, I’m the one
Trying to hide this damage done
One day, all our secrets will be spoken

As we slow dance, I became your statue frozen
Times I wonder, are we just a puff of smoke? Yeah
Underneath this bed of ashes, still withholding everything
Like we were never close

Don’t you worry, baby, no sense trying to change it
I’ma strike these matches, never had control
I’m ready to let go, no, was I fooling myself?
I’ma spread these ashes, never had control
I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready to let go

Sun went down, sun went down over Pompeii
On holy ground, our vows were broken
We met up, we broke bread
I was blue your dress was red, ain’t it strange?
We both knew this day was coming

As we slow dance, I became your statue frozen
Times I wonder, are we just a puff of smoke? Yeah
Underneath this bed of ashes, still withholding everything
Like we were never close

Don’t you worry, baby, no sense trying to change it
I’ma strike these matches, never had control
I’m ready to let go, no, was I fooling myself?
I’ma spread these ashes, never had control
I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready to let go

Don’t you worry, baby, no sense trying to change it
I’ma strike these matches, never had control
I’m ready to let go, no, was I fooling myself?
I’ma spread these ashes, never had control
I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready to let go
