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.
