Do The Years Turn Too Quickly Through Life’s Pages For You?

Do The Years Turn Too Quickly Through Life’s Pages For You?

This is part of the lyrics of a song whose title I cannot remember. I was listening to it in the car and thought that it was so meaningful.

So apt for someone nursing a broken heart, lamenting disappointments, and feeling sorry for themselves. It tells us that we can acknowledge our silly mistakes, misspent youths and betrayals to GET UP AND LIVE.


That’s the key phrase in this song…to get up and live.

Here’s the lyrics

If you look around and see some joys have passed you by,
don’t give up just get up and live.
and if you ever sigh over things you wished you’d tried
now’s the time to get up and live.
don’t set your heart on things you have missed
but look out to the horizon, and get up and live


(chorus) one day, one day, one day at a time.
one day, one day at a time.
one day, one day, living one day at a time.
one day, one day at a time.

and if your past romances left behind in ruins
start to love yourself and get up and live
and if some painful memory keeps you hiding from tomorrow
take a second chance to get up and live.
don’t let your sorrow scald you,
don’t live in the past
and don’t let your failures hold you just get up and live.



if you had a dream, what you might’ve been
don’t let go just get up and live
and if you think the years turn too quickly through life’s pages
take what’s left and get up and live
don’t mourn the years that have drifted, and what might’ve been
take all that you’ve been given – and get up and live
