Some other versions of "Let Me Be"

Lyrics
Black diamond, shining in the sea - set me free
Diamond, minds in sympathy - let me be

Bright and strong
Listen to all my songs
Of the day sadness sings
Of the love that I bring

Dark angel, dancing in the light - well alright
Angel movin' mystery - let me be

Small and proud
Call my real name out loud
Over lands far away
Tell them just what I say

You don't take it
You don't break it
You might make it fall into the sea
You don't rush it
You don't crush it
You just brush it to the wind

Come back, get back
You gotta fix up the broken hearts
It's time to start
Maybe let me be

Black diamond, shining in the sun - had to run
Diamond burning fiercely - let me be

Small and proud
Call your name real out loud
Gotta make a start
Maybe let me be

Bright and strong
Listen to all my songs
Of the day sadness brings
Of the love that I sing

Dark angel dancing in the light - well alright
Angel movin' next to me - let me be
Alngel, you said you'd come along with me
You knew that that could never be
Angel - let me be
Angel
