"Every Single Day" as written by Leenderd T. Richard Schooneveld, Reinold H. Hoogendoorn and Jan Engelaar....
See all the people longing to be
Living their lives regretlessly
Trying to repress the pain in their lives
Reassuring themselves living with lies
No way to break through not on my own
Can't push away all the sorrow I've known
Have to release every thought or care
And take control life is a dare

I can start over today
Live my life a different way
Can't find a way to erase bad times to make
Everything OK
I'll start over and live every single day

Regrets and memories no remorse no apologies
No reason for me to despair no future at all
Ask if I care
I got time on my side twenty four hours in my life
Can't hang on to what's in my past
Full speed ahead hard and fast
At the end with each dropping sun
Can't erase what has been done who cares
What happened long ago I don't want to know

Can't face tomorrow with these thoughts
Of yesterday
I can't escape the lies and make them go away
Wish I had the answers to make it through
Can't shake these images no matter what I do

I guess I'll use them to make me a stronger man
I'll use each
Twisted tortured memory to help me understand
And I will learn
From mistakes
To find a way
I guess I'll have to live with them every single day

    General CommentTo me, this is always among my top 5 Pennywise songs. It's an anthem that everyone should listen to. Definitely pertains to the "live fast, die young" theme, but not so directly. We never no what's goin to happen, so live each and every single day to the fullest, and always try to learn from your mistakes and make the best of what you're given.

    General CommentWhat I love about Pennywise that their music really goes euphorically and their lyrics are easy to understand, directly written and approachable and partly, as to find in this case, realizeable for everyone. It gives the advice to each and every single person out there to live a life in which you can say at any time: I didn't was a god damn second (especially not by producing feels of guilty to a so called creator).

    General CommentIt's about forgetting about the past and living everyday to the fullest instead of worrying about what could've been

    General Commentyes, it is about living your life to the fullest, but it also a song about moving on with your life in a positive manner. He seems to have dark memories of the past that haunt him, and hinders him from living his life to the fullest. So he is saying "hey i gotta one with my life and accept the mistakes that I've made and use them to further my own well-being".

    General CommentAs said, a song straight to the point. It's my favourite song and always lifts my spirits when someone tries to stamp on you.

    Live your life every single day, dont do it tomorrow, or next week, do it today. If bad memories kick you down, sweep them aside and move on.
