Today is Sunday, Beginning a New Chapter

I don’t have to look in the mirror

I don’t have to answer the phone

I don’t have to take out the trash

Or worry about being alone.

I don’t have to hold it all in

I don’t have to hold anything back

I don’t have to believe the old stories

About all of the things I may lack.

I don’t have to utter a word

I don’t have to make up a song

I don’t have to tell you I love you

 Or about all of the things I did wrong.

I don’t have to make up my bed

I don’t have to make up my mind

I don’t have to play any games

Or pretend to have a good time.

I don’t have to write you a letter

I don’t have to protect my heart

I don’t have to come up with the answers

Now that you and I are apart.
