lyrics

Wake up in the morning, I can see the distance
What a beautiful life, beautiful place to begin
She rolls over says “whatcha thinking?
How many days you gonna wait to live?”
Today is all about what you make it
No lies, no fate, sins to forget
So grab at your dreams and chase them
No time to waste living with those regrets

When I close my eyes all I see’s an old man staring back at me
Dreaming all the dreams he missed
“If you won’t stop dreamin’ ‘bout tomorrow,
How am I supposed to go and live the day?”

Call on my brothers, call on my dear friends
We can love one another, that’s what we’ll be in the end

Maddy’s dancing up and on the lawn
Doing cartwheels, signing all her little songs
Oh no, if you didn’t know her, you’d say she’s wasting till its gone
She is not dreaming about tomorrow,
Breathing each and every little breath.
Cuz she believes in this moment
Thankful for every chance that she gets.
“The sun will rise and I’ll keep winning
Doing the things I always did, live my life with no regrets.
If you won’t stop dreaming about tomorrow, how am I supposed to live the day!”

Call on my brothers, call on my dear friends
We can love one another, that’s what we’ll be in the end
We can turn it all off, and step out to where we begin
We've got one shot, its enough, to make it all count where we stand.

Now I can’t see what you believe
Taking all your time from me
Taking all the things you stole
Miss my life from before
Now I will be here in the end
Standing side-by-side with my friends
I will stand for what I believe
Taking back all you see
Won’t waste my time “living in sin”
Be thankful for all my kin
Treasure all the words you speak
All the things that make me me
Like going on down the record store,
Visit my friend Rivers Cuomo
Singing “What’s a matter, what’s a matter, what’s a matter with you
What’s a matter babe, are ya feelin’ blue.”

Call on my brothers, call on my dear friends
We can love one another, that’s what we’ll be in the end
We can turn it all off, and step out to where we begin
We've got one shot, its enough, to make it all count where we stand.
