Blowin out the candles
On another birthday cake
Old enough to look back
And laugh at my mistakes
Young enough to look at the future
And like what I see

My best days are ahead of me

Life hasn't always been a party
But mostly it's been good
There's only one or two things
That I'd change if I could
I don't get lost in the past or get stuck
In some sad memory, yeah

My best days are ahead of me.

Age aint nothing but a number
Sometimes I have to wonder
What does it really mean
But hey, I'm still putting in together
I keep getting better
If I keep getting better
I can be whatever I wanna be

My best days are ahead of me.

Age aint nothing but a number
Sometimes I have to wonder
What does it really mean
But hey, I'm still putting in together
I keep getting better
If I keep getting better
I can be whatever I wanna be

My best days are ahead of me.

I got sunsets to witness
Dreams to dance with
Beaches to walk on, and lovers to kiss
'Coz a whole lotta world out there
That I can't wait to see

My best days are ahead of me.

    This song is saying that just because times might be hard now, the best days are still to come. Never give up on what you want...If you keep doing your best at everything that you do, you can do anything you want. So keep going for whatever it is you want and it will happen.

    @loserrface - Danny placed third on "American Idol" last year. I think he should have won because he will be around when Adam Lambert and Kris Allen are nothing more than a memory in the music world.
    If you've ever gone through a life changing tragedy in life this song does mean something. I've been through one myself so even on a horrible day I can listen to this song and it makes me realize that there are so many blessings in this life and they're all out there for the taking. Even when I want to give up I know that just like Danny, my best days are ahead of me too. It's just a song but it's a powerful one with a great message for anyone that needs the strength and encouragement to face another day! Thanks Danny!!!
