Ascension Day song (for this week)

I love the band Relient K.  They have journeyed with me through the years.

I thought this song “Up and Up” is fitting for this week; with us celebrating Ascension Day:

May the lyrics encourage you!

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 it seems I get so hung up on
The history of 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 light 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
I know 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
Oh

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’ve gained from love
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’ve gained from love
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)
Oh
