The bloods left on my hands
And its up to me to wash away
Its up to me to make it right
Forget the past
What’s done is done
I always said so easily
Now its time that I live my words

Living in those days that hold me back
They hold me back
They hold me down
I knew this wouldn’t get me far
Just away from you full of myself
And I know
That there’s something inside of me
That I can give
That I can give to you

So many times I looked away
Passing someone off but I’m just the same
Never gave you a chance
Now that’s a chance
I’ll never take

It won’t hold me down
It won’t take me down

I’ll live my words

    General CommentThese are pretty good lyrics, and since the songwriting members are christian, I think its about changing the past and forgetting and moving on. The operative word is a term used to describe a word which is in the past tense, doesn't have meaning anymore doesn't describe the person any longer.
