Brand New Day

Brett Raio

Lyrics

New year’s day came and I’m onto resolutions

To solve the habits that take months or years to break

I probably should’ve started when I had the chance not long ago

But I pushed it all away

Here I am, in my own procrastination

I had things to accomplish, responsibilities

I’ll just wait, for a brand new day to make a change

Or a brand new year, I guess that’s okay

You don’t gotta wait to make a change

You can start today, there’s a world to save

You don’t gotta let the devil win, he wants to see you fall, see you break

You don’t have to let the hours pass, stuck in the problems of your past

God can open up a path, all you gotta do is ask

All you gotta do is pray, and say

Right now is a brand new... day

Yeah-y-yeah eah

Annually, I tell myself that it’s a new me

Every year, I tell myself that I’m finally gonna make a change

But every year, late January, I wake up to the thought of something scary

What if maybe this year is the same

What if maybe I can’t fix my brain, ha

You don’t gotta wait to make a change

You can start today, there’s a world to save

You don’t gotta let the devil win, he wants to see you fall, see you break

You don’t have to let the hours pass, stuck in the problems of your past

God can open up a path, all you gotta do is ask

All you gotta do is pray, and say

Right now is a brand new day

Yeah-y-yeah eah

Feeling low at this very moment

Pockets poor and heart is broken

Mind confused, legs not working

To change the path I’ve always turned to

Why is it so hard to see

My life has purpose, reasoning

Why is it so hard to breathe in 10 degrees, can’t move my legs

Can’t fix my brain, can’t change my name, I’ve done bad things I can’t retake

I feel a mess, and life is stressing me out

Can’t say I’m sorry just to fix it, can’t replace the days I’ve missed

Feel low in this spot but I done picked it, all these shots I take too distant

It’s like I’m trying to fix up my life, And, I know how my problems arrived

Created most of them myself at night, thinking these thoughts without answers in sight

I’d turn to God, but I think I’ll wait, there’s no way in Heaven or hell

That he would accept me, cause I’ve made mistakes, God can try to relate

But He never could ever get passed all my sins

Oh He died for my sins? Oh He bled on a cross? Oh tomorrow’s a new day to be who I want

So I’m taking these losses

Wherever the cost is at

My wallet’s out, I’ll pay the fee, whatever the price comes out to be

I don’t want to live life deep in sin

Dirty water with tides that’s pulling me in

I’d give all that I have, to break away fast from what’s holding me in, and relinquish sin’s grasp

I didn’t realize this year would be deadly

Like years in the past where I’d hear what you’d tell me

But I didn’t listen, I tried to dismiss it

I’m elate I finally took time to address it

And all that I have to do is believe

Give you my heart, Lord give you all of me

And the fact, that’s all you need for all I get

I feel unworthy but I’m worthy to you yes

Just trust in God, and break the chains

Jesus suffered the cross to carry sin’s weight

So I don’t have to wait, I can do it today

I can make the change, it’s a brand new day

You don’t gotta wait to make a change

It’s a brand new day

You don’t gotta let the devil win

It’s a brand new da-a-ay

All you gotta do is pray, believe

Right now

It’s a Brand New Day

Yeah-y-yeah eah, eah

For every mood
