Let regret get lost in the noise
And pain be forgotten with the night.
Count down to the future
And be the reason it’s bright.
Bring with you those who inspire,
And abandon those who restrain.
Let the lessons stick with you
But the clock dissolve the stain.
Hoping to grow,
And planning to accept,
While promising to cherish
And have a soul well kept.
Holding onto the best,
But letting my heart enjoy the fresh air,
Because you can’t dance in the rain
Without wetting your hair.
