Randy Travis – Pick Up The Oars And Row lyrics

What good does it do to hold onto
The anger deep in your heart
You're the only one that it's hurting
You're the one that it's tearing apart
I'm sorry that he broke your heart girl
But it's time to let it go

Sometimes love is a river of tears so pick up the oars and row

He shattered your expectations
He broke all his promises too
With his little white lies he looked in your eyes
And made you believe they were true
Aw but this ain't the final curtain
Girl it's time to get on the show

Sometimes love is a river of tears so pick up the oars and row

It's been far too long now
Since I've seen your smile
Your bitterness don't look good on you
And self pity just ain't your style
Sooner or later you know you've got to play the card you've drawn
It's all up to you
You can stay blue or you can move on

Ain't it hard when you discover
Things ain't what you thought they would be
When all of your best played plans
Hit the wall of reality
Still all in all it's a good life
But it sure can be painful I know

Sometimes love is a river of tears pick up the oars and row
Sometimes love is a river of tears so pick up the oars and go
