"Today" as written by Jaime Hanna, Raul Malo and Alan Miller....
It's all here
Today is the only day
The old times make way for the new

Some fruit punch
Spills on a tablecloth
But there ain't no mess to clean up

Garbage in a can sticks together
The tiniest of things are forever
Drop a couple coins and a feather
And watch them float away at the same time

Song is made with sugar and lemonade
Sing on the porch, swing along
Me and you having a barbecue
Sticking our thumbs in the air

Meeting of some notes on a pocket
Sitting in the sun with some chocolate
Drop a couple pens and some pencils
And watch it all fall right into place

    General CommentIt's all about good times. I love the line "Drop a couple coins and a feather/And watch them float away at the same time." Makes me think that money is no more valuable than the simple things in life.

    General CommentI don't know about anyone else, but when I hear this I think of a birthday/ birthday party. It just seems to be about enjoying the little things, letting troubles go and having a barbeque. Y'know?

    My OpinionWell i think that:
    "It's all here
    Today is the only day"

    Means that is kinda saying to live your life like everyday it's your last day.

    "The old times make way for the new"
    Says that your past show your future.

    "Some fruit punch
    Spills on a tablecloth

    But there ain't no mess to clean up"

    I think that spilling the fruit punch on the tablecloth is a mistake(obvious), but you don't need to worry because mistakes are normal or cause is the "destiny".

    "Drop a couple coins and a feather
    And watch them float away at the same time"

    Shows that the coins and feather has the same value, and means that the coins aren't a big deal.

    "Song is made with sugar and lemonade
    Sing on the porch, swing along
    Me and you having a barbecue
    Sticking our thumbs in the air"

    Is to have fun with your friends.

    "Drop a couple pens and some pencils
    And watch it all fall right into place"

    Means that the pencils were supposed to fall.

    I think this song is awesome, not just the melody but the lyrics are beautiful!
    This song it's about have fun and relax, not caring about mistakes, cuz if happens, is because it was supposed to happen.
