If I could rid my life
Of trash that I have gathered
How light my footsteps would be
If I could clear my mind
Of dreams that have been shattered
How hopeful tomorrow would be
If I could just forgive
Past hurts that did not matter
Forgiven my sins would also be
If I could only count
The pains that I have scattered
Repentance would set me free
If my past could just let go
Of a present so torn and tattered
A joyful future for ever will be
If ... ... ...
If I could keep my head
When all around me
Are losing theirs
And blaming it on me ... ... ...
I'd be the only one needing a haircut.
