Song Description

This is a song I have wanted to write for sometime about making the conscious choice everyday ..."to make it a Great day". Then a couple sources of inspiration hit and viola....a new song. When the children were young, I used to greet them in the morning with various phrases about making today a "great" day...what kinda day are you going to make it?.... My goal was to impress upon them the they really will determine their mindset. Not to go overboard, but the same choices face us all daily. Making a conscious decision to not "try", but to "make" each day (give it your best effort) as good as it can be and beyond. So, this whole idea is milling around in my head and then I was finishing up another song and creating a piano part for it, when, as I sat at the piano...this tune just popped out. I quickly picked a little drum track and hit record and played the idea out. Then saved it and it sat waiting for a couple months. Then, we had a granddaughter ...it she was a Glory and it was a great day. Then, bingo, rack-focus....the whole song was framed. I added this to all the notes in my journal associated with this song....and it came to life. I hope you enjoy this song.... and share it with others. It is intended to inspire and bring some joy into the world.

Great Uplifting song!

Love the drums, very well done!

Lyrics are nice an catchy.

    - Lisa Vivienne

This is a uplifting song of celebration. I like the guitar. The melody is simple but catchy. The style is original. This would be a great song to cheer you up in the morning with it's positive message. I like the quality of the vocal. Lot's of musical interest in the backing instruments.

    - Paul Winter

GUITAR TUNING: F# - C# - F# - F# - C# - F#

VERSE
If we give in, we can make the changes
That push away the past
Drop the weights that are on our shoulders
Walk away and don't look back

CHORUS
"Cause today is going to be a great day
It'll happen if we make it that way
Today is going to be a great day
Nothing's going stop us
It's going be a great day

VERSE 2.
Why wait for the perfect moment
To finally make a vow
When the time for a new direction
Will always start right now
I know it's going to happen
If we decide to start right now .... singing ....

REPRISE
Oh, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria
We can do it, it's going be a great day
Oh, Gloria, Gloria, (Glory, Glory) Gloria (Glory, Glory)
We can do it, it's going be a great day
Glory, Glory, it's going be a great, great day

BRIDGE
Now, here's the key to make it happen
Give each moment all we can
Use your heart to build your freedom
Then I'll know you'll understand...that...

REPEAT CHORUS
Today is going to be a great day
It'll happen if we make it that way
Today is going to be a great day
Nothing's going stop us it's going be a great, great day .... singing

REPEAT REPRISE
