1. Give up the need to always be right
Let go of blaming everybody for myself
I can change myself
But I can’t change anybody else
Give up those limited beliefs

Won’t you stop?
And smell the roses
Won’t you stop?
And smell the roses
Give up fear and illusion and attraction to the past
Give up those limited beliefs

2. Give up all of my bitterness
It won’t harm anybody but myself
Time will pass with of all of my long-gone regrets
Give up my grasp on the past


I know it’s hard
To give up what you think you’ve got
I know it’s hard
You’re fine without them.
