"Let You Go" by David Epps

Meaning Behind the Music

Hey everyone, my name is David Epps; I am a college student majoring in Computer Science/Marketing, and I am also a singer/songwriter. This is the ending to my original song titled, "Let You Go".

The song I'll be breaking down in this article is a song I wrote about everyone, including myself, holding on to things that have been holding them back for too long, and prolonging their happiness. Whether the thing holding them back is a person, a job, an ideology, a lack of money, or really anything else is irrelevant, because it can be literally anything.

Excerpt from the song:

"You can't love me, I don't love me, no one loves me"

There comes a point in life when a realization occurs, and it's so clear that so many opportunities in life were missed, because of whatever it was that was holding them back. When a person isn't happy with their situation, how can they expect to, or how can anyone expect them to enhance anyone else's situation.

Excerpt from the song:

"You don't know me, no, not like I do, so... You can't love me, no.

I think I am right almost all the time, all you do is fight.

I make choices based on how I'm feeling, so..

I think I'm going to let you go"

This is the chorus and main idea of the song. When someone is unhappy, and they've been unhappy for years, then that's how everyone knows them, and it's normal. The only person that really knows they're unhappy is the actual person. When that person tries to make a change in order to be happy, others may criticize, fight with them, tell them they're doing the wrong thing, or even tell them they're crazy. But once that realization is found, and the person finally decides it's time to be happy, and lets go of the fear everyone has instilled in them, that person is unstoppable.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
