about

Inspired by a passage of the same name, Just For Today is an affirmation for practicing mindfulness in a hectic world where people are anxious about the past and future.

lyrics

Capo 3
D A G

I got out of bed after I laid down to rest
went down to the river to dunk my weary head
every day I wake I will be my very best
today, I'm going to live for today

told you I loved you, don't need to hear it back
those parting words I spoke while my belongings I did pack
I meant every word, now I'm on those old train tracks
today, I'm going to live for today

today, just for today
oh for that I pray

skipped out on work instead I wrote this song
everything that we own will one day be gone
so I skipped out on work 'cause before the day is done
today, I'm going to live for today

I planted seeds and I'm gonna watch 'em grow
sowed them in the ground and into hearts of those I know
I planted seeds and I'm gonna watch 'em grow
today, I'm going to live for today

I heard through the grapevine of someone who was dying
that light was fading, now everybody's crying
appreciate the life out there and the one that you've been given
today, I'm going to live for today
