If you knew tomorrow,
That you would never speak again,
Who would your next words go to?
And would you say what you mean?
And mean what you said?
Would you confess that love
That felt like it'd be buried in your grave?
When people take away that sense of forever,
Do you suddenly feel brave?
In the face of the New Year,
Make a promise to yourself.
Don't speak it out loud,
It's not for anyone else.
Don't resolve to check things off a to do list you know you'll never complete.
Not fulfilling a halfhearted New Years wish, is hardly a defeat.
Make a promise to speak words that come from the heart.
I know that honesty is not easy, it's cruel and it's hard.
But I really just wish people would say what they mean and mean what they say,
Because more times than not, you will not get another chance the next day.
