I Have Today

Play

I got caught up in a world
Where people weren't real
Where all the deep emotions I should feel
Were only very briefly spoken of
They just imagined love

Through a thousand yesterdays
I tossed my life away
I can't relive the days I've done
But I can change what's yet to come
I'll start now
I have today

You've showed me, Lord
What I could never find
Could never focus into view
How that real love that lingered on my mind
Was always waiting there in you

I decided I should end
This life of just pretend
Where no one ever really was my friend
And helping hands were only spoken of
They just imagined love

Through a thousand yesterdays
I tossed my life away
Now, Lord you've made my whole life new
And I can change because of you
I'll start now
I have today

I'll start now
I have today
