Lyrics

Happy Today

When I get out of bed, I get to make a choice
I can redirect my inner voice- That says
Hey man, things are not going your way"
It all starts with a good intention
or maybe a soulful intervention
But it's up to me to choose how I live my day

Chorus
Be grateful for all that I have
Accept what I can't change
Invite compassion towards the world
Forgive the smaller things
Lower my lofty expectations
Give my love without reservation
Do these things, I'll be happy today.

These are simple things but they are hard to do
When you bless others, you are blessing you
Because everyone suffers, but it's on the inside
When you accept yourself and make peace with your past
You move towards love that will last
Open your heart and let go of your pride

Chorus
Be grateful for all that you have
Accept what you can't change
Invite compassion towards the world
Forgive the smaller things
Lower those lofty expectations
Give your love without reservation
Do these things, you’ll be happy today

The Meaning of life is to serve and love
It’s what we all must do
If you can learn to laugh when you feel like crying
Nothing can ever stop you
Nothing will ever stop you

Chorus
Be grateful for all that we have
Accept what we can't change
Invite compassion towards the world
Forgive the smaller things
Lower our lofty expectations
Give our love without hesitation
Do these things, we’ll be happy today
