Itís Only Today That Counts
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Well, It ain't no good to lay in bed at night And think about the past About how you could have done things differently But they just happened way too fast. Why don't you close your eyes, go to sleep Let the angels bring you dreams Let those years unwind behind you And float away on silent streams. You gotta live your life the best you can Though you sometimes do your worst You gotta laugh or you'll fail, it doesn't matter anyway Life is a play that's unrehearsed. Don't make too many plans for tomorrow You can't control what lies ahead Why don't you try to live each moment As it comes instead. Shu, la, la, la, la, la, la.... There's no use dreaming of a perfect future Or regretting a troubled past It's only today that counts So live it like it might be your last It's only today that counts So live it like it might be your last. Well, it never helps to worry And it never hurts to pray Tomorrow will come soon enough You better take care of today You got to learn to trust your life to God You know the future's in His hands And only faith will help you Meet your life's demands, yeah! There's no use dreaming of a perfect future Or regretting a troubled past It's only today that counts So live it like it might be your last It's only today that counts So live it like it might be your last It's only today that counts Live it like it might be your last. It's only today that counts Live it like it might be your last It's only today that counts Live it like it might be your last It's only today that counts Live it like it might be your last. C'mon, open up your heart and live Open up your heart and live You gotta live, live, live, live, live, live Comes back pretty soon So c'mon, c'mon, cmon, live You gotta live, live, live, live Do what you can Don't waste time Don't waste time Make up your mind Make up your mind.
