Above and Beyond

This world has gone and lost it's mind, in some ways
children crying, people lying, wondering what the fighting's for
pointing fingers, trading blame, won't reset life to yesterday
there's no second glances, only chances to make a change
As I sit and pray, I forget about trivial things
there's somebody out there who needs my prayers much more
than I ever realized before

Make every moment count, take naught for granted
live each second til it runs out and don't have regrets
leave no door left unopened, there's no room for missing pieces
if we're all just passing through, touch a heart and mean it
finish that one project and fulfill that lifelong dream
don't spend your time wishing for different things ,work with it
make the most of today for tomorrow is never promised
love too deeply, smile too sweetly, make someone feel better
every day, send hope their way, write a long letter
go above and beyond, beyond just getting by

These days are harder than ever now, if you ask me
asking questions, chasing answers, trying to appease all sides
making wishes, swapping shame, doesn't seem to help the hate fade
we're all out of formalities, so I'm down here on my knees
searching for a remedy, to discover peace
my heart is restlessly longing to end the innocents' suffering
more than i ever dreamed

Make every moment count, take naught for granted
live each second til it runs out and don't have regrets
leave no door left unopened, there's no room for missing pieces
if we're all just passing through, touch a heart and mean it
finish that one project and fulfill that lifelong dream
don't spend your time wishing for different things ,work with it
make the most of today for tomorrow is never promised
love too deeply, smile too sweetly, make someone feel better
every day, send hope their way, write a long letter
go above and beyond, beyond just getting by
