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.”

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
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
I’m starting over
