Goodbye Scarlet
by Once By Fire

       
Lyrics:

VERSE 1
Clean the slate for another day
Weíll make the old one steal away
Iím so ready to make this change
We must get back to higher ground
If we could just stay in the now
Oh, weíve got to move on
Press on for the upward call, babe
Letís not get torn down
Or come back here again
Leave it where it falls
And if it keeps calling
You say

CHORUS
Memory, youíre a lying cheat
Come down from the mountain
Fall into pieces
Waste time when youíre talking to me
Iíve been to the cross
And laid down the grief
Thereís no life in the history
And sorrow is a wound
That doesnít want healing
Next time that we happen to meet
I wonít think twice
Wonít think twice
I wonít think twice

VERSE 2
How much more could you have to say?
You make a scene and start to play
Oh, you think I wonít release it all
Give me the strength, Lord, to walk away
To let it go and make it stay
Oh, so we can move on
Press on for the upward call, babe
Watch, donít get torn down
We wonít come here again
Leave it where it falls
And if it keeps calling
You say

CHORUS
Memory, youíre a lying cheat
Come down from the mountain
Fall into pieces
Waste time when youíre talking to me
Iíve been to the cross
Tasted the freedom
No life in the history
And sorrow is a wound
That doesnít want healing
Next time that we happen to meet
I wonít think twice
I wonít think twice
I wonít think twice
