When times were tough and love wasn't plentiful
I'd think back to when life was beautiful
and my heart was still in one piece
The world was new, the sky was blue
Waiting for my dreams to come true
and somehow I knew everything

One morning I finally realized
The present can be as bright as my early life
So from that day on I decided to let go
and leave the past alone

So now I'm living in the present
I'm living for today
Living in the present and
Soaking up the seconds of everyday
and the present soon will be the past
and the past can never change
So I'll learn from my mistakes
and never look back again

Expectations are high when you're very young
Parents wanting a better life for their son
and cherish the day when their job is done
Time: I thought that you were on my side
Time: How could you treat me so unkind
Years would pour like honey and now pour like rain

But that morning I finally realized
Dwelling on the past is only a waste of time
So from that day on I decided to let go
and leave the past alone
