My Best Days Are Ahead of Me!

When Danny Gokey was on American Idol last season, I actually called in and voted for him for the first time I'd voted for anyone.  I liked his voice, his persona.  So when I heard him on country music radio (yes, I listen to all music - including country!), I was excited to hear him and realize he'd finally come out with his own album.  The first song released is "My Best Days Are Ahead of Me" and really is great... but when I watched the video (I've posted the link here) and looked at the post-it notes and what is written on the posters throughtout the video, I liked Danny Gokey and this song all the more!  I hope you'll find it as inspirational as I do.   Remember, "Life is too short to be anything but happy!" :)

My Best Days are Ahead of Me Lyrics

Blowing out the candles
On another birthday cake
Old enough to look back and laugh at my mistakes
Young enough to look at the future and like what I see
My best days are ahead of me

Life hasn't always been a party
But mostly it's been good
There's only one or two things that I'd change if I could
I dont get lost in the past or get stuck in some sad memory yah
My best days are ahead of me

Age is nothing but a number
Sometimes I have to wonder
What does it really mean
But hey im still putting it together
I keep getting better
if I keep getting better
I can be whatever I want to be
My best days are ahead of me

Age is nothing but a number
Sometimes I have to wonder
What does it really mean
But hey im still putting it together
I keep getting better
if I keep getting better
I can be whatever I want to be
My best days are ahead of me

I've got sunsets to witness
dreams to dance with
beaches to walk on
and lovers to kiss
there's a whole lot of world out there
that I can't wait to see
My best days are ahead of me
My best days are ahead of me.

Hey I'm from Istanbul, this country has no taste or interest for country music yet I love it! I also like American Idol and who doesn't welcome a new inpirational song! He sounds good. Thanks for sharing ☺

What a great song! It speaks to so many things you can accomplish when you stay in the here and now and put one foot in front of the other. Thanks for sharing!
