  • Life is a journey,
    Not a destination,
    There are no mistakes,
    Just chances we've taken
    Lay down your regrets cause all we have is now

    Wake up in the morning
    And get out of bed
    Start making a mental list in my head
    Of all of the things that I am grateful for

    Early in the morning
    It's the dawn of a new day
    New hopes new dreams new ways
    I open up my eyes and
    I open up my mind and
    I wonder how life will surprise me today
    Early in the morning
    It's the dawn of a new day
    New hopes new dreams new ways
    I open up my heart and
    I'm gon' do my part and
    Make this a positively beautiful day

    La la la la la la la la la [Repeat: x3]
    It's a Beautiful Day [Repeat: x3]

    Life is a challenge not a competition
    You can still smell the roses and be on a mission
    Just take a moment to get in touch with your heart
    Sometimes you feel like you've got something to prove
    Remind yourself that there's only one you
    Just take a moment to give thanks of who you are
    Early in the morning
    It's the dawn of a new day
    New hopes, new dreams, new ways
    I open up my eyes and
    I open up my mind and
    I wonder how life will surprise me today

    Early in the morning
    It's the dawn of a new day
    New hopes, new dreams, new ways
    I open up my heart and
    I'm gon' do my part and
    Make this a positively beautiful day

    La la la la la la la la la [Repeat: x3]
    It's a Beautiful Day [Repeat: x2]

    Let's make this a wonderful
    Let's make this a powerful
    Let's make this a Beautiful Day
    It's a Beautiful Day

    Life is a journey,
    Not a destination,
    There are no mistakes,
    Just chances we've taken
    Lay down your regrets cause all we have is now Writer/s: INDIA ARIE, INDIA ARIE SIMPSON, JOYCE SIMPSON, NICK TREVISICK, ROBIN ROBERTS
