When The Only Solution

          There are times when the only solution
          Is to let go of the past and start anew
          To let go of all the old dreams, the ways of before
          Sometimes thatís the only thing you can do

          One must let go of the hurt and pain
          And bury the memories away
          Put and leave them in the past
          And start to build on a brand new way

          One must let go of people and situations
          And what "could have been"
          One must let go of mistakes
          And begin fresh, all over again

          When the past holds you back
          Haunting your present, overshadowing
          Not allowing you to grow and flourish
          Then itís time to let go of everything

          Itís not always easy to start afresh
          But neither is it easy to live in the past
          Today and tomorrow is ours to live
          Step by step we can build a new life to last

          It serves no purpose to hold on to
          Something that gives you no room
          To grow, to flower
          To bring your life to bloom

          There are times when the only solution
          Is to not look back as you walk away
          To burn your bridges of yesterday
          And start a new life today
