Lyrics

Amy came back from the fair
With a shiny red balloon
She said "I'll keep it forever until I grow old
Bounce it around in my room"
But on her way home
Somehow the string slipped away
Her mom held her tight and wiped off the tears
And said as they both watched it sail

Let it go, let it fly
A red balloon in the big blue sky
Let it ride on the wind
So many things we can't hold, let it go

Amy found her first love
They got an apartment downtown
And she loved living there floating on air
Until it all crashed to the ground
The day he packed up his things
There was no more left to say
But she heard her mother's voice in her head
As his old car drove away

Let it go, let it fly
Like a red balloon in the big blue sky
Let it ride on the wind
So many things we can't hold, let it go

Amy sat on the bed
As her mother battled the pain
The best friend she'd known all skin and bone
Then one last time she opened her eyes
Love whispered it'll all be okay

CHORUS
