Yesterday is a wrinkle on your forehead
Yesterday is a promise that you've broken
Don't close your eyes, don't close your eyes,
This is your life

And today is all you've got now
And today is all you'll ever have
Don't close your eyes.

This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, is it everything you've dreamed
That it would be when the world was younger,
And you had everything to lose?

Yesterday is a kid in the corner
Yesterday is dead and over

This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, are you who you want to be

    General CommentI love "it everything you dreamed it would be, when the world was younger and you had everything to lose." Not just the lyrics but the way it's sung. It's very powerful. My church small group used this song as a basis for a youth conference we ran on the future and everyone just was silent for like 15-20 minutes after reflecting on it. It blew everyone away and I know why.
