Be Brave Enough To Say It

Be brave enough to walk away

And don’t look back

Be brave to say goodbye

Be brave enough to go your way

Be brave not to tell a lie.


Remember how the whole mess started

It was a beautiful spring day like today

The humming birds were antsy and enchanted

And the squirrels were crossing the freeway.


Be brave enough to come out clean

And don’t look back

Be brave to admit that you’ve been disobedient

Be brave enough to say that you were arrogant

Be brave to acknowledge that you’ve been mean.


You apparently have a very short memory

Sometimes, I wonder what’s crossing your mind

You behave out of the ordinary. You’re crazy

You say the wrong thing and you’re not kind.


Be brave enough to say goodbye

And don’t look back

Be brave to say exactly what you feel

Be brave enough not to lie

Be brave to fulfill your part of the deal.
