My key turns in the lock and I opened my front door
Greeted by the darkness like too many times before
I tiptoe in to kiss the children but they're all asleep
Wonder if they're dreaming about the date I didn't keep
It was such a busy day I just couldn't get away
Cause you gotta make it while you can
So I remember dollar bills business deals and headache pills
But I forgot to live today I forgot to live today
As I dressed for bed I think about today
Wonder what I got for all the time I gave away
Traded my time for a dollar bill didn't see the sky but I saw the mill
Couldn't go to Jeannie's play missed Timmy's ballgame yesterday
Mary had to go for both of us
While I remember dollar bills business deals and headache pills
But I forgot to live today I forgot to live today
Born with all the time I'll ever see each day another part slips away from me
But I forgot to live today
I slip into bed and I kiss my Mary's cheek
I can tell she's crying and I know she's not asleep
I listen to the clock tick away another night
And swear that tomorrow I'll make everything right
I'll remember building kites mending dolls and broken bikes
Flowers from the woman in my life
And I remember who I love more than all the stars above
Cause I forgot to live today I forgot to live today
