Today’s the day I’ve been so long afraid of
Today’s the day I thought would never come
Today’s the day you learn I’m smarter than you thought
Today’s the day our friendship is really done.
Today’s a day for another new experience.
Today marks another can’t take back.
Today’s 11/22 and I won’t soon forget it.
Today I’m forced to keep myself on track.
Today I don’t find myself quite sad.
Today I don’t feel much of anything at all
Today so far I’m not afraid like I thought I would be
Today I guess is nothing but a free fall.
Today is just a Tuesday for you right now
Today you’re probably sitting in class
Today you’ll get a phone call and you’ll wonder who it is
Today you’ll see you didn’t get a pass.
Today you might feel angry, so angry you could kill
Today you might feel scared out of your mind
Today you might feel sad and it may finally hit you
Today you might decide to take your life.
Today you could feel nothing like you always seem to do
Today you could finally face what you did
Today you could ignore it and pretend that you don’t know
Or you could make excuses like you were just a kid.
Today you’ll see I’m fighting and I don’t think you’ll let me win
I’ve been fighting for my life since you ripped through
Today all the anticipation has come to a sharp end
Today I guess that I’m prepared for whatever you will do.
Today you won’t be sorry because you don’t know how
Today I won’t believe you because I know I shouldn’t
Today I hope you think you can talk your way right out.
Today I hope they show you how much you simply couldn’t.
Today they’ll make the call and ask if you’ll come in
They might just leave the message at the beep
Today is really something that I truly can’t describe
What you had sown back then today you reap.
