Yesterday
Is not quite what it could've 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 the scene it gets so horrible
This line is wrong - it should be
"And it seems we get so hung up on"

The history and what's gone wrong
And the hope of a new day
Is sometimes hard to see (what you see)
And though I'm finally catching onto it
And now the past is just a conduit


And the life that I have
The end is where I'll be
These two lines are incorrect, it's just "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
What I'm capable of
And I'm on the up and up
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
And now the past is just a conduit
Right there at the end
Is where I'll be
Ohh

'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
What I'm capable of
And I'm on the up and up
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
I'm on the up and up
And I haven't given up
Given up on what
What I'm capable of
And I'm on the up and up
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
(Trying to be a better version of me for you)
Ohh

    In realizing that the past is a stepping stone to make people who they are today, they come to terms with mistakes and know that the person thay're becoming today is the person that they'll be for the rest of their life. The choices they make with God help them to make themselves a better person, the best person, and will help them fufill their full potential.
