Lyrics

Today is the day
That I'll turn off my cell and I
Won't tweet, won't log into Facebook
If you want to talk to me you can come over
The door is wide open and I
Won't have the TV on
No video games, no videophone
'Cause it's finally time
To leave all that behind and
Start getting it right

I'm gonna live my life
I'm gonna live my life
It's a beautiful day
I'm gonna open up the window
And feel the wind blow
I'm gonna live my life
I'm gonna live my life
Soakin' up the sun
Out there having fun
Do whatever I like
I'm gonna live my life
I'm gonna live my life (Gonna live it, baby)

Today is the day
That I won't make any plans
Give serendipity a chance and
Jump off into the unknown
Talk to strangers and have my mind blown
Without a parachute
Go streakin' in the nude
And if you don't like it
I think you should try it
We don't have to be prudes

I'm gonna live my life
I'm gonna live my life
It's a beautiful day
I'm gonna open up the window
And feel the wind blow
I'm gonna live my life
I'm gonna live my life
Soakin' up the sun
Out there having fun
Do whatever I like

This life is all that we got
So let's live it up
No time to waste it away
Stop playin' it safe
Let's live for the day
I'm gonna live my life
I'm gonna live my life
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon

I'm gonna live my life
I'm gonna live my life
It's a beautiful day
I'm gonna open up the window
And feel the wind blow
I'm gonna live my life
I'm gonna live my life
Soakin' up the sun
Out there having fun
Do whatever I like
I'm gonna live my life
I'm gonna live my life

Today is the day
