Story

After talking about the concept of this song with the kids, I will not forget when a girl raised her hand and said, "I get it.  It's like you want to write out your life in pencil so you can just erase the parts you don't like."  Sounds good to me:)

This song was written after we finished the CD so it is unmastered.  

Lyrics

FAST FORWARD

 

I want to write out my life in pencil

Edit out all the bad parts

Everything boring, all of the losses

Every wound of the heart

 

Skip to the last page

To see how the story ends

Push rewind after I find

Out what happens

 

Chorus

Fast Forward to the Future

Play it out in my mind

Maybe I will, maybe I won’t

Like what I find

But the power to change the here and now

Is a little imaginative know how to

Fast Forward to the Future

 

I don’t need a time machine                                               

Just time enough to dream                                               

Picture myself as I want to be                                    

Find the right path for me                             

 

Then kick back                                               

Take the good with the bad                                               

I’ve only got this one life                                                           

I want to get it right                                                           

 

Chorus repeat

Fast Forward to the Future

Play it out in my mind

Maybe I will, maybe I won’t

Like what I find

But the power to change the here and now

Is a little imaginative know how to

Fast forward to the Future

 

Bridge

Think about tomorrow...today

Think about tomorrow...today

Might do things in a different way

If we think about tomorrow...today

 

Chorus repeat
