One Day too late

i was listening to a playlist of skillet. great music! and i came across this song, one day too late. click here to listen.

the first two lines are:
Tick tock hear the clock countdown
Wish the minute hand could be rewound
im sure this can relate to anybody. there is always that one thing that you wish had gone differently. that if you had the chance, you would change in the blink of an eye. i know that there are so so many times i’ve wished for that.

So much to do and so much I need to say
Will tomorrow be too late
to answer that rhetorical question, yes. you might think “ah i can just change things tomorrow. it will be fine. time will heal” ect, but thats not how it works! anything could happen in the space of time. hypothetically, what if you have an argument, but leave saying something horrible, and you want to turn back, but dont. you just say to yourself you’ll apologize the next day.  but what if your friend dies in some crazy car accident? what if your last words were hate filled lies? tomorrow is always too late, if you have something to say- say it when you have the chance!

Gonna learn to forgive and forget
‘Cause we don’t have long, gonna make the most of it
you might think you have a whole lifetime, but you dont know whats going to happen next in your life. dont worry about it, but embrace the unknown. i know i sound like some crazy teacher person, but im only speaking the truth! if you dont learn to forgive, who will forgive you? if you dont forget all the bad times, then soon your life will be a circle  cycle of bad stuff.

Today I’m gonna love my enemies
thats what Jesus taught us to do. love your enemy. its difficult. really hard to do, but if Jesus said its the way to go, who am i to disagree with the son of God?

Reach out to somebody who needs me
maybe theres that girl at school who’s getting bullied. maybe theres someone you dont like that seems to be going through some tough times.. show them Gods love, be an example that Jesus would be proud of!

 

 

Tick tock hear the clock countdown
Wish the minute hand could be rewound
So much to do and so much I need to say
Will tomorrow be too late

Feel the moment slip into the past
Like sand through an hourglass
In the madness I guess I just forget
To do all the things I said

[Pre]
Time passes by
Never thought I’d wind up
One step behind
Now I’ve made my mind up

[Chorus]
Today I’m gonna try a little harder
Gonna make every minute last longer
Gonna learn to forgive and forget
‘Cause we don’t have long, gonna make the most of it

Today I’m gonna love my enemies
Reach out to somebody who needs me
Make a change, make the world a better place
‘Cause tomorrow could be one day too late
One day too late
One day too late

[V2]
Tick tock hear my life pass by
I can’t erase and I can’t rewind
Of all the things I regret the most I do…
Wish I’d spent more time with you

Here’s my chance for a new beginning
I saved the best for a better ending
And in the end I’ll make it up to you, you’ll see
You’ll get the very best of me

[Bridge]
Your time is running out
You’re never gonna get it back
Make the most of every moment
Stop saving the best for last
