Seize The Day

Seize The Day

This is a song about seizing the day and making the most of whatever opportunities come your way. It that came to me one morning in August 2021 when I was lying in bed. At least the first verse and chorus did. I came up with the second verse when writing to a friend about the song, and later worked out a tune and accompaniment on the ukulele.

Seize The Day

There's something in the air today
That makes me want to laugh and play
It makes me want to dance and sing
and smile at everything

Seize the day, seize the day
and let your worries float away
Seize the day, seize the day
let nothing get in your way

There's no need to fret or cry
or ask for reasons how or why.
Just seize the day in every way
and don't let it pass you by

Here's a rough recording (the chords are G, C and D):

I also posted this on Facebook, Instagram and Tiktok.
