We all cannot wait for things to end so that we can begin a new chapter in our life. We try to rush things because we cannot stay at that moment. Sometimes we wish that the future will come as soon as it can. However, what we don’t realize is that this moment we are in happens only once in a lifetime. Once today is gone you cannot bring it back, and you are left with memories you can’t change. Sometimes you’ll be left with the regret of rushing into life instead of savoring every moment.

What the Song’s About
The song has a powerful message that makes us realize to live life slowly. It shows different events in life, and in each event, the main character is rushing to move ahead of the future. However, there are people like the narrator’s mother, father, and the plumber who remind her to take things slowly. She wanted things to move forward, but she was told by others to treasure this time because someday she will look back and miss it.
You’re gonna miss this
You’re gonna want this back
Gonna wish these days hadn’t gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you’re gonna miss this
Here’s Trace Adkins’ single about living life one day at a time.
