"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Carbon Leaf - Let Your Troubles Roll By

Love endures; it clings away.
When asked to leave, it begs to stay.
Like the perfect song and in perfect times,
it’s the way the chords struck with the rhymes,
so let your troubles roll by.

He knows he can help himself;
he can tell by a look at the books on his shelf,
and someone somewhere loses a son before her own sunset is said and done..

And she dreams of sunflowers bent over, frozen in the snow and thinks Colorado, then plays her life back in slow-motion to keep in touch with that raw emotion.
In the night, crushed empty can;
Olive Oyls waiting for her man to come in from the fight that will change their life for good this time

When all of your tears dry, let your troubles roll by..
when all of your tears dry, let your troubles roll by..
when all of your tears dry, let your troubles roll by..
let your troubles roll by.

Like New Year’s eve, tonight’s underway,
but tomorrow you’ll wake up afraid of the day,
cuz underneath the scars of your broken dreams,
an undone war still wages and stings.

You feel that you will flow like a breeze
through a rainbow you swear is there, but you can’t grab ahold
so you sit and cry and wonder why, why?

When all of your tears dry, let your troubles roll by..
when all of your tears dry, let your troubles roll by..
when all of your tears dry, let your troubles roll by..
let your troubles roll by.

So many cities and windows and lives and through each one there’s a soul that strives to survive,
so pay no mind; my sorrow’s fine..
the day is alive and that’s why I cry

It’s the New Year toast.. grab your list to conspire,
the last snake hissed as he was thrown in the fire.
You’ve come far and though you’re far from the end,
you don’t mind where you are, cuz you know where you’ve been.

Like a culture vulture sprawled out on the floor,
like a dead devil sailor washed up on the shore,
with nothing of note, but the old captain’s coat,
and a burning boat you just sank with your salty

tears dry, let your troubles roll by..
when all of your tears dry, let your troubles roll by..
when all of your tears dry, let your troubles roll by..
let your troubles roll by.
