• Matthew West - Day One Lyrics

    From the album Live Forever

    Well, I wish I had a short term memory
    Wish the only thing my eyes could see
    Was the future burning bright right in front of me
    But I can't stop looking back

    Yeah, I wish I was a perfect picture of
    Somebody who's never not good enough
    I try to measure up but I mess it up
    And I wish I wasn't like that

    I wish I wasn't wishing anymore
    Wish I could remember that nobody's keeping score
    I'm tired of throwing pennies in a well
    I gotta do something
    Here goes nothin'

    It's day one of the rest of my life
    It's day one of the best of my life
    I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
    Yeah, here I come
    The future has begun
    Day one

    Well, every single day Your grace reminds me
    That my best days are not behind me
    Wherever my yesterday may find me
    Well, I don't have to stay there

    See my hourglass is upside down
    My someday soon is here and now
    The clock is tickin'
    And I'm so sick and tired of missing out

    It's day one
    And here comes the sun

    Every morning, every morning
    Every morning, mercy's new
    Every morning, every morning
    Every morning, I will fix my eyes on You
    Every morning, every morning
    Every morning, mercy's new
    Every morning, every morning
    Sun's coming up, the beginning has begun

    Starting over, I'm starting over
    Starting over, I'm starting over, starting now
    I'm starting over
    Starting over, I'm starting over
    Starting over
    Starting over, starting now
    I'm starting over
