"History" as written by and Matthew Joseph West....
It's been a bad day, you've been looking back
And all you can see is everything you wish you could take back
All your mistakes, a world of regrets
All of those moments you would rather forget
I know it's hard to believe
Let me refresh your memory

[Chorus:]
Yesterday is history
And history is miles away
So leave it all behind you
Let it always remind you of the day
The day that love made history

You know you can't stay right where you fell
The hardest part is forgiving yourself
But let's take a walk into today
And don't let your past get in the way

[Repeat chorus]

Would you believe that you are history
In the making, in the making
Every choice that you are making
Every step that you are taking
Every chain that you are breaking
History is in the making
Every word that you are saying
Every prayer that you are praying
Every chain that you are breaking
History is in the making
History is in the making
History is in the making

    General CommentI can't believe nobody has commented on this song! I think it explains itself, but to me it's about forgiveness, and how you shouldn't worry about the past/bad choices you've made..

    Let it always remind you of the day
    The day that love made history

    ..because Jesus died to take all that stuff away from us! And to me, that's what the 2nd line means.
