SONG OF THE WEEK: One Day Too Late by Skillet

Do you know the band Skillet?  You should.  Solid rock band with powerful lyrics and sound.  One Day Too Late is from their new album Awake.  Do you remember when you thought time moved so slow?  When you wish you would hurry up and get on with your life?  This song beautifully and passionately encourages us to not life “one step behind.”
Tick tock, hear the clock countdown
Wish the minute hand could be rewound
So much to do and so much I need to say
Will tomorrow be too late?

Feel the moment slip into the past
Like sand through an hourglass
In the madness, I guess, I just forget
To do all the things I said

Time passes by, never thought I’d wind up
One step behind, now I’ve made my mind up

Today, I’m gonna try a little harder
Gonna make every minute last longer
Gonna learn to forgive and forget
‘Cause we don’t have long, gonna make the most of it

Gutsy vocals by the lead singer that leaves you feeling he deeply knows what this song is talking about.  This is definitely a roll down the windows and crank up the music kind of song…. Take a listen and enjoy
