"Risen" as written by and Marc Andrew Roberge Richard On....
I'm not quite sure how I got here
A minute passed and I'm on my feet
I never knew life could taste so good
I need a little minute, just a moment to breathe
No matter where I go, no matter who I see
Well I'm reminded of my earlier days
No matter where I roll, no matter what I know
Well I'm reminded of my earlier ways
But now I keep asking myself

Wouldn't it be the best damn day
If we all took time to breathe?
Just one stolen paragraph
In the book's written history
Don't you sometimes wonder why
People are afraid to smile?
Don't look down we're gonna come around
And it always come to
back, crack of time eventually
Just ascend with me

I'm not quite sure when I woke up
The night flew by as I lay asleep
Who ever knew that life could feel so good?
I need another minute
Just a moment to breathe
No matter where I go, no matter who I see
Well I'm reminded of my earlier days
No matter what I know, no matter where I roll
Well I'm reminded of my earlier ways
But now I keep asking myself
Wouldn't it be the best damn day
If we all took time to breathe?
Just one stolen paragraph
In the book's written history
Don't you sometimes wonder why
People are afraid to smile?
Don't look down we're gonna come around and it always come to back,
crack of time eventually

Wouldn't it be the best damn day?
Wouldn't it be a wonderful day?
Wouldn't it be a glorious day?
If we all took time to smile,
Made just a minute for you and me
Wouldn't it be the best damn day?

    General Commentfirst of all, O.A.R. kicks ass! i believe this song is about how if people would take time to relax once in a while, they would feel a whole lot better. just enjoy life for what it is, if you do, every day will be the best damn day.
