Some things bear repeating

Some things bear repeating

Some things bear repeating

 

If it really does,

Say it three times.

Say it three times.

Say it three times.

 

You can only control.

What you can control.

You can only control.

What you control.

You can only control.

What you can control.

 

Some things bear repeating.

You can only control

What you can control.

Some things bear repeating.

We should repeat them to ourselves

However many times it takes

For us to get them

Get them.

Get them.

 

Repeat them.

Repeat them.

Repeat them.

 

You can only control

What you can control.

You can only control

What you can control.

You can only control

What you can control.

 

Find the place where you

Realize that

Realize that

Realize that,

And there

You’ll find some peace.

You’ll find some peace.

You’ll find some peace.

some peace.

peace.

peace.

 

Some things bear repeating.

However many times it takes

For us to get them.

Get them.

Get them.

 

You can only control

What you can control.

 

Ain’t no sense stressing over

What you can’t control,

What you can’t control,

What you can’t control.

 

Some things bear repeating.
