Matthew West - Day One (Lyric Video)




I love music and music has always been a source of inspiration for me; as I was listening to my local Christian Radio stations a new song by Matthew West has really inspired me, so I wanted to share it here with you.  I hope it encourages and inspires you as it has me.

A passage in Lamentations was his inspiration for these lyrics:  
(Lamentations 3:22-23)
“it is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed,
Because his compassion fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”

DAY ONE
Matthew West

Well I wish I had a short term memory
Wish the only thing my eyes could see
Was the future burning brightly 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
Wish I could remember
I’m tired of throwing pennies in a well
I gotta do something
Here goes nothing
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 a beat of a brand new drum
Yeah here I come
The future has begun
DAY ONE
Well every single day your grace reminds
That my best days are not behind me
Whenever my yesterdays 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
I wish I wasn’t wishing anymore
It’s day one and here comes the sun
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
DAY ONE
I’m starting over

STARTIN NOW”
