Tangled Heart

Please tell me so I can understand
How in the world am I supposed to walk
Away from this?

I… I don’t believe a word you say.
It’s a feeling that I have that you might
Go away.

Tangled heart.
Doesn’t matter who you are,
Where you’re going or where you’re comin’ from.
Tangled heart.
Don’t let the past dictate your part.
Surface now before it drags you down.

Time…I thought only time would set me free,
From this cage that I stepped into
Voluntarily.

But I…Yeah, only I can break it down.
Take these chains apart
Surroundin’ me.

Tangled heart.
Doesn’t matter who you are.
Where you’re going or where you’re comin’ from.
Tangled heart.
Don’t let the past dictate your part.
Surface now before it drags you down.

You’ve got to open up your heart.
I look at you …
Can’t stand to watch you fall apart.

So tell me when you’re gonna let her in.
Too afraid to try (I've been hurt before)
Too afraid to try (How do I heal these sores and wipe away the memories?)
You and I know, baby (Should I hide away until I find a way...)
To finish what you start
(To grow a brand new heart)

Please tell so I can understand
How in the world am I supposed to walk
away from this?

It's a Good Day

The dawn is greeting me with rays of sunshine
Uh-huh, it's a good day
The smell of coffee lingers all through the mornin'
Uh-huh, it's a good day

So many dawns still yet to know
So much life that we can give
Don't let a day go by unchallenged
Let go the past, learn to forgive

A smile can brighten up the lives of strangers
Uh-huh, it's a good day
A hug can give reason to pay it forward
Uh-huh, it's a good day

So many friends we've yet to know
Share in this world where we all live
Don't let a day go by unchallenged
Let go the past, learn to forgive and...

Open up to the whole - universe
Take a look all around
Can you see it in their eyes?
Can you feel it in your heart?

The stars are lighting up as night is falling
Uh-huh, been a good day
Let's say good night and dream until the mornin'
Uh-huh, of a good day

So many days we've yet to know
So much love we have to give
Don't let a day go by unchallenged
Let go the past, learn to forgive
