These days, I’m in love with this song, “I’m Letting Go” by Francesca Battistelli.

The youtube video is private, viewable by invitation only (wth kinda crap is that anyway?!?), but I was able to find this playlist thingy on her website (click play, then ffwd to the song you want to hear):

It’s the story of my heart recently. Letting go and living by faith.

The lyrics are pure genius, but her voice is what makes the song:

My heart beats, standing on the edge
But my feet have finally left the ledge

Like an acrobat
There’s no turning back

Chorus
I’m letting go
Of the life I planned for me
And my dreams
Losing control
Of my destiny
Feels like I’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
So I’m letting go

This is a giant leap of faith
Trusting and trying to embrace

The fear of the unknown
Beyond my comfort zone

Chorus
I’m letting go
Of the life I planned for me
And my dreams
Losing control
Of my destiny
Feels like I’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
So I’m letting go

Giving in to your gravity
Knowing You are holding me
I’m not afraid

Feels like I’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
Feels like I’m falling and this is the life for me
