Lyrics

As a new day dawns, I can see the sun,
And I?m in anticipation of good things to come.
So this is how it feels, to be a part of something real,
To be a part of something greater than I know.

In a century, we will all be gone.
Life was meant to be, good for everyone.

As the sun goes down, in the western sky,
As I sit here in reflection of the days gone by.
I am 21. I?m 21 years young, with 21 years to be thankful for.
