RAISE YOUR GLASS

Tomorrow is calling but history has me in chains
Seems to deny all these present-day claims
And I’m torn in three
Each tense tugs at me

Granted a freedom that I haven’t yet learned
Got a key to the kingdom that I never could earn
Not that I didn’t try
But my resolve was as weak as I

CHORUS
So please raise your glass
Drink to the future, drown out the past
‘Tis the season for moving on
Yesterday is dead and gone

One lost little girl, she was was searching for truth
But she was too bound by the pain of her youth
Now she hides behind the wall of her pride

Scraping and stumbling as she tried to walk free
She said, “I see redemption but it don’t see me”
And she dwells in scenes kept alive by memories

So please…

CHORUS

Marking the lines, the direction of time as it moves
The clock doesn’t wait or erase my mistakes, but I choose
How much time I’m gonna lose

ALT CHORUS
So please raise your glass
Drink to the future, drown out the past
‘Tis the season for moving on
Yesterday has gone away
