I sang the song the blackbird sings
A song so blue
A requiem for the dreams he never knew
I never knew what I missed
When I'm so focused on things I can't undo
Standing's only half the battle
Now I have to move

Finally everything's unfolding now
I'd forgotten how life can pick you up
When it spits you out
I'm okay now
I'm forgetting all the years
I spent hoping things would change
Today is a good day, a good day

I'll take this time
To be thankful for all the days I'm given
Cause every moment spent on wishes
Is a moment I'm missing
i dont want to waste my time
I want to be there for life
I dont want to waste my time
This is my life

Finally everything's unfolding now
I'd forgotten how life can pick you up
When it spits you out
I'm okay now
I'm forgetting all the years
I spent hoping things would change
Today is a good day, a good day

It's never late, things can change
Everyday has a meaning
And I know when things get hard
You want to run away
But these things you can face
And this fate you can change
And this place will hold joy
If you stay where you are
Don't you push it away

Finally everything's unfolding now
I'd forgotten how life can pick you up
When it spits you out
I'm okay now
I'm forgetting all the years
I spent hoping things would change
Today is a good day, a good day

    General Comment"Standing's only half the battle
    Now I have to move"
    I absolutely love those lyrics

    I think this song is about being optimistic and realising that eventually things do get better and things do brighten up. I think it's about appreciating all that you have, achieving all you can and making the most of life and living up to your full potential.

    I love this song, it picks me up when I'm down. The lyrics speak so much truth. Because things aren't always bad. Sure everyone will face hardship, trials and tribulations but we can get through it if we strive for a better things. [:

    Very inspiring and motivating song.

    General Commenti love the lyrics and the song. i think it's about just living your life instead of feeling regretful about the past, and don't let your past bring u down.
