A Whole New World Is Waiting

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator ofย A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: OLD/NEW/BORROWED/BLUE

Life, Spiritual, Breathing, Sea, World

In the process of searching for a song for this post, I bypassed many familiar songs which I love, in favour of a song that I had never heard of before. Perhaps I was a little bit swayed by the cartoon video I found on YouTube – just a little. How do you know that you are officially old? When you only recognise a couple of characters from a Disney animash. At least I know what an animash is!!

Apparently, I am officially a millennial, and although I think that word sometimes is assigned as a negative designation, I am claiming it!

The song I have chosen is called “Today My Life Begins” and it is sung by Bruno Mars. I enjoyed the track, and I really enjoyed the lyrics – there is a lot of positivity there for you!

I’ve been working hard so long
Seems like pain has been my only friend
My fragile heart’s been done so wrong
I wondered if I’d ever heal again

Oh just like all the seasons never stay the same
All around me I can feel a change (oh)

I will break these chains that bind me, happiness will find me
Leave the past behind me, today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting its mine for the taking
I know I can make it today my life begins

Yesterday has come and gone
And I’ve learn how to leave it where it is
And I see that I was wrong
For ever doubting I could win

Oh just like all the seasons never stay the same
All around me I can feel a change (oh)

I will break these chains that bind me happiness will find me
Leave that past behind me today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting its mine for the taking
I know I can make it today my life begins

Life’s too short to have regrets
So I’m learning now to leave it in the past and try to forget
Only have one life to live
So you better make the best of it

I will break these chains that bind me happiness will find me
Leave the past behind me today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting its mine for the taking
I know I can make it today my life begins

I will break these chains that bind me happiness will find me
Leave the past behind me today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting its mine for the taking
I know I can make it today my life begins

Today my life begins…

  1. How uplifting! I really enjoyed your choice. And definitely claim that millennial designation. Your cohort gets a bad rap sometimes. How sad to be classified by the decade you were born instead of your actions. Cheers from a Boomer cusp of Gen X ๐Ÿ™‚
