Lyrics

Let It Lie

Written By: Brenda Dempsey

1st Verse-->

I thought I'd lain this love to rest, but it put me to the test, seeing you tonight.
I hugged you as I passed.
You said, "Why leave so fast?"
Story of my life.

Chorus-->

If I'd known then, what I know now, maybe I wouldn't be alone.
If I'd loved then much better than I did, you might still be in my arms.
Be in my arms.

2nd Verse-->

Is this the last goodbye?
I'm fighting not to cry and trying not to look behind.
Though it's where I wanna be, it just doesn't want me, so I have to let it lie.

Chorus-->

3rd Verse-->

Wish I could say I'd done my best, back when I had my chance, but instead I have regrets.
You know, I learned a lot from you, now I know what not to do, in order to prevent this.

Chorus-->

Bridge-->

This is the last goodbye.
I'm just so sick and tired of missing you.
I'm not gonna let my mind remember when you were mine, when someone else is kissing you. Oh, why should I?

Chorus-->

Karma

Written By: Brenda Dempsey

1st Verse-->

Face down in the dirt, trying to kiss the earth that you walk on, now that I have walked all over you.
Is this what I deserve?
The sentence I will serve.
If that's what you want, then I will give it freely.
When all the things I did, didn't mirror things I have said, the pieces shattered & my luck's run out again.

Chorus-->

You had to tear me down a notch.
I had become someone I am not.
You had to tear me down a notch.
I had forgotten that you have to work to keep what you've got.

2nd Verse-->

You put me in my place, in an attempt to save some face, when all this time I had been doing the same thing.
For you there is no blame, the fault is my own shame, but you've made me better for the hell you put me through.

Chorus-->

Bridge-->

Come on Karma, give me back my life.
How many sorries 'til everything'll be alright?

Repeat x2

Chorus-->
