lyrics

The summer kissed me once
to wake me from the cold.
Said "get up, get dressed now,
because it's time to go.
I won't be in town very long
so let's make the most of today."

I followed her down to
my opportunity.
The stream was flowing
strong as I have ever seen.
I cupped my hands, reached down,
and washed the fear away.

So forget your words and worries.
Listen to the melody.
It's singing "it's a brand new day.
It's a brand new day.
It's a brand new me."

The day's alarming light
sticks around in the sky.
The sunset's hanging on
the summer's clothesline.
The world, you know, it offers us
so much when we're in need.

So here's to future's bright,
the scenic routes we'll take,
the lessons we will learn
from missteps that we make.
Here's to hearts full of love--
to finding what we seek.

So forget your words and worries.
Listen to the melody.
It's singing "it's a brand new day.
It's a brand new day.
It's a brand new me."

So forget your words and worries.
Listen to the melody.
It's singing "it's a brand new day.
It's a brand new day.
It's a brand new me."
