Matthew West Performs 'Day One' In Square

Check out this video of Matthew West performing his song ‘Day One’ live in a public square in Tennessee.

“Well, I wish I had a short term memory, wish the only thing my eyes could see
Was the future burning bright right in front of me, but I can't stop looking back
Yeah, I wish I was a perfect picture of somebody who's never not good enough
I try to measure up but I mess it up and I wish I wasn't like that
I wish I wasn't wishing anymore, wish I could remember that nobody's keeping score
I'm tired of throwing pennies in a well, I gotta do something, here goes nothin'”

Matthew West was recently in Franklin, Tennessee where he performed songs by request from his fans.

“Thank you to my friend in Franklin who requested to hear ‘Day One’ live from the Square a few weeks ago!” Matthew wrote in the caption of this YouTube video. “I wrote this song as a reminder to not spend your days analyzing your past or stressing over your mistakes, but instead remember that He has a plan. Every day is Day One of the rest of your life!”

What an inspiring message and one worth remembering! The song title was actually inspired by one of Matthew West's favorite Bible passages: Lamentations 3:22-23, which reads, "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases. His Mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning."

"In those words, there is a promise for everybody to remember that each morning God resets His mercy for us,” Matthew shares. “It's like hitting refresh on your computer every once in a while. I get that image when I think about that passage. Every single morning with the rising of the sun, His mercy is new. The faithful love of the Lord never ceases."

We hope that you enjoyed listening to ‘Day One’ by Matthew West today!
