Why Not Today?

Why Not Today?

I’ve been waiting for just the right moment
To start living the life of my dreams
I was hoping some magical moment
Would come rescue me

But it hit me today, there’s no better time to begin
This day I’ve been given is my day to start livin’
So I’m jumping in

Why not today while the sun is shining?
Today while I know I can?
The past is behind me, tomorrow can’t find me
Till I live today
So why not today while my heart is ready?
Today while it’s in my grasp?
If I start out slowly, I’m confident knowing
I’m still on my way
So why not today?

I’ve been searching in all the wrong places
For the courage to follow my dreams
But I finally discovered the power
Lies inside of me

I could spend my life waiting for something to show me the way
But I would be missing the wonderful blessing
Of embracing today

Why not today while the sun is shining?
Today while I know I can?
The past is behind me, tomorrow can’t find me
Till I live today
So why not today while my heart is ready?
Today while it’s in my grasp?
If I start out slowly, I’m confident knowing
I’m still on my way
So why not today?

I’m ready, I’m willing, I’m able
I’m learning to fly
But how will I know how high I can soar
If I never try?

Why not today while the sun is shining?
Today while I know I can?
The past is behind me, tomorrow can’t find me
Till I live today
Why not today while my heart is ready?
Today while it’s in my grasp?
If I start out slowly, I’m confident knowing
I’m still on my way
Why not today?
Why not today?
Why not today?
