A New Day


Broken people say, Broken people say
Hey, I'm living today, for it's a new day
I am getting ready. I am getting ready, yes
For today, Starting today
i'm going to celebrate life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life

It's not right to feel what i'm feeling now
I will avenge my losses some way, some how
Build my heart with a will so strong to bring forth a new vision
I will celebrate my life knowing I have made the right decision
If it takes me all year I have no cares
I'm going in this fight much prepared

There's a feeling in my heart and I can't shake it
I feel that in my heart that i'm not going quit
better days are coming got to be patient
better days are coming to be complacent

If you look into my heart, keeping a positive mind
You will see the journey of me walking the road to victory
Life always teaches us a lesson
Don't count yourself out of your blessings
by not ever paying it much needed attention
i'm living life renewed, a brand new me, everyone will see
You only live once, i'm living it up, I'm not giving up

Clock speeds to tomorrow I've entered a new phase
I've risen above the sorrow of all I felt yesterday
I'm working harder and harder
to see myself rise and not fall
i'm giving this journey my all

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
