up and up

these lyrics are blessing my heart lately. I hope they do the same for you. 


yesterday is not quite what it could have been,
as were most of all the days before.
but i swear today, with every breath i'm breathing in
i'll be trying to make it so much more.

'cause it seems i get so hung up on 
the history of what's gone wrong. 
and the hope of a new day is sometimes hard to see,
but i'm finally catching onto it
yeah the past  is just a conduit.
and the light there at the end is where i'll be

'cause i'm on the up and up,
i'm on the up and up
and i haven't given up,
given up on what i know i'm capable of
'cause i'm on the up and up,
yeah there's nothing left to prove.
'cause i'm just trying to be a better version of me for you
a better version of me for you.

to be prosperous would not require much of me
you see, contentment is the one thing it entails.
to be content with where i am, and getting where i need to be
i'm moving past the past where i have failed!


but i'm finally catching onto it
yeah, the past is just a conduit
and right there at the end is where i'll be

'cause i'm on the up and up,
i'm on the up and up.
and i haven't given up,
given up on what i've gained from love
'cause i'm on the up and up,
yeah there's nothing left to prove.
'cause i'm just trying to be a better version of me for you,
a better version of me for you.

you never cease to supply me
with what i need for a good life
so when i'm down, i'll hold my head up high
'cause you're the reason why i'm on the up and up
