From This Day


Days are too short

Nights aren't very long

Not enough time remaining

In either to correct my wrongs.

If I could go back in time

Doing it I surely would

Correcting my earthly wrongs

Oh_ If only I could.

Walls are closing in

Closer they come towards me

My escape door is locked

And I don't have the key.

Since it's impossible

To live my life over again

From this day forward

I'll start doing the best I can.

I know it impossible to be perfect

But from now on I'll try to be

Maybe I'll be good enough

To earn Heaven's key.
