About Let It Happen

"Let It Happen" is a song by the Australian rock band Tame Impala, released as the lead single from their third studio album Currents on 11 March 2015. The song centers on accepting personal transition, and was worked on in various locations around the world. The song runs at nearly eight minutes long, and its second half contains a section of the song repeating akin to a scratched Compact Disc, and stripped-down lyrics consisting of gibberish. It also has vocoded-like vocals in the second half, which were actually manipulated with a keyboard sampler. The song received acclaim from music critics. It peaked at number 29 on the Belgian Flanders singles chart, number 84 on the ARIA Singles Chart and number 152 on the French Singles Chart. In the United States, the song charted at number 28 on Billboard's Adult Alternative Songs chart. "Let It Happen" appeared on many critics' year-end lists of the best songs of 2015. A music video for the song was uploaded on 17 August 2015 to the group's Vevo channel on YouTube.

It's always around me, all this noise
But not nearly as loud as the voice saying
"Let it happen, let it happen (it's gonna feel so good)
Just let it happen, let it happen"

All this running around
Trying to cover my shadow
A notion growing inside
Now all the others seem shallow
All this running around
Bearing down on my shoulders
I can hear an alarm
Must be morning

I heard about a whirlwind that's comin' 'round
It's gonna carry off all that isn't bound
And when it happens, when it happens (I won't be holdin' on)
So let it happen, let it happen

All this running around
I can't fight it much longer
Something's tryna get out
And it's never been closer
If my ticker fails
Make up some other story
But if I never come back
Tell my mother I'm sorry

I will not vanish and you will not scare me
Try to get through it, try to bounce to it
All the while thinking I might as well do it
They be lovin' someone and I'm not that stupid
Take the next ticket to take the next train
Why would I do it? And you wanna think that

(I will not vanish and you will not scare me)
(Try to get through it, try to bounce to it)
(All the while thinking I might as well do it)
(They be lovin' someone and I'm not that stupid)
(Take the next ticket to take the next train)
(Why would I do it? And you wanna think that)

(I will not vanish and you will not scare me)
(Try to get through it, try to bounce to it)
(All the while thinking I might as well do it)
(They be lovin' someone and I'm not that stupid)
(Take the next ticket to take the next train)
(Why would I do it? And you wanna think that)

Baby, now I'm ready, moving on
Oh, but maybe I was ready all along
Oh, I'm ready for the moment and the sound
Oh, but maybe I was ready all along
Oh, baby, now I'm ready, moving on
Oh, but maybe I was ready all along
Oh, I'm ready for the moment and the sound
Oh, but maybe I was ready all along
