I think we all know someone that fits this description... or maybe we ARE someone who fits this description.... You never really know what will happen if you let go.

When She Lets Go
© 2009 Jim Paradis

Deep in her heart - There’s a fire that burns
I can see when I look in her eyes
I don’t know what it’ll take – to get her to turn
That slow steady flame into a passionate cry

There’s a volcano building – an unspoken rush
Yet she’s placid, gentle and sure
But I feel the tremor – when we touch
There’s a fever that’s rising no doctor can cure

She’s been broken and tamed, hobbled and lamed
But her heart is about to explode
She’ll be baptized in fire, burned with desire
When that volcano finally blows
And I know
I want to be there
When she lets go


When she lets go – gonna be quite a show
As those flames shoot high in the sky
Lightning will flash – and thunder will roll
There won’t be any time for good-byes

She finds it hard to let go of the life that she knows
So pretty, so ordered and tame
She’ll tease and she’ll grin, but she won’t give in
To the fire that’s calling her name

For too long she’s held it inside
For too long she’s held back the tide


She’s only waiting – biding her time
Trying to live with the pain
But promises made – like ropes that are frayed
Are breaking under the strain

She’s been broken and tamed, hobbled and lamed
But her heart is about to explode
She’ll be baptized in fire, burned with desire
When that volcano finally blows
And I know
I want to be there
When she lets go
