Matthew West History Lyrics

Last updated: 05/01/2012 11:00:00 AM

Its been a bad day, you've been looking back
And all you can see is everything you wish you could take back
All your mistakes, a world of regrets
All of those moments you would rather forget
I know it's hard to believe
Let me refresh your memory

Yesterday is history
And history is miles away
So leave it all behind you
Let it always remind you of the day
The day that love made history

You know you can't stay right where you fell
The hardest part is forgiving yourself
But let's take a walk into today
And don't let your past get in the way

Repeat chorus

Yeah Yeah

Would you believe that you are history
In the making, in the making
Every choice that you are making
Every step that you are taking
Every chain that you are breaking
History is in the making
Every word that you are saying
Every prayer that you are praying
Every chain that you are breaking
History is in the making
History is in the making
History is in the making

Repeat chorus

Yeah yeah
Oh history is in the making

Every word that you are saying
Every prayer that you are praying
Every chain that you are breaking
History is in the making
History is in the making
History is in the making

Great Songs | Reviewer: Eddy Sactic | 5/1/12

I love this song because it is related to one of my favorite verses in the Bible, the one in 2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

Very Motavational | Reviewer: Dianne | 4/20/11

I came across the cd when I was unpacking. Totally forgot about it. I reall y feel this song fits myself and millions of others. It is the first song in the morning. It is also my favorite as I can so relate to it. Thank you so much for sharing this with the world.

WOW | Reviewer: katie | 8/27/10

This song is amazing in that I can relate to it. We have all made mistakes and sometimes we tend to dwell upon them but this song reminds us of the "day that love made history". That day has set us free from all of our mistakes in the past because if we believe in Jesus Christ and how he died on the cross for us then we are no longer bound by past sins because he forgives us. That is what this song is telling us so we no longer need to worry about the past but give that to God but instead we need to be looking at the here and now and how we can serve Him.

IT'S AMZING | Reviewer: Ervin | 10/11/09

It is a nice though people don't understand what it means nyahahahaha! it nice because it is so encouraging evento those who eperienced so much tragedy... like people disgraced by the typhoons in our country the Philippines and tsunami in Indonesia God will care only for those who face these so called "motions"

Inspirational | Reviewer: Bridget | 6/15/09

Wow, this song is so amazing. I think so many kids are so fixated on the past and how they are going to make things right again, but its all behind us already, an we'll always be thinking aout it,, but we have to make the best of it, and always know that God is with us and he will be helping and healing our hearts everyday...He loves us...we're his history..he made us <3

Encouragement | Reviewer: Aimee | 4/11/09

This song is very encouraging... my friend is going through a hard time, and this song popped into my head not minutes after I had been talking to her, so I got back on the computer and emailed her the lyrics. I know this will help her feel better about her future, and anyone else who is having trouble focusing on the present and future, instead of the past.

Very Moving | Reviewer: Cristiano | 12/1/08

I usually do not listen to christian music. I'm not a christian. But recently I've been really reflecting on all the mistakes I've made in life. And there seems to be a ton. I started getting a depressed by this, and then I happened to hear this song. It has made a real difference in me. I think it's very moving and made me realize that everyone has baggage. I especially like the part “You know you can't stay right where you fell. The hardest part is forgiving yourself”. How true, I can forgive anyone for ANYTHING, but I can't forgive myself. What a great song. I hope everyone gets from what I have.

Great song! | Reviewer: SamOath | 9/3/08

I love this song so much, it would have to be one of the best christian lyric songs i know of, Im normally a fan of the genre as i normally listen to underoath and as i lay dying and bands like that, but this song is amazing, I can relate to this song so much, i have stuffed up heaps in the past, and asking god to forgive you and start living a life of love and loving others, is one of the best choices you will ever make.

9.5/10 great song

Great Song! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/4/08

This is one of my all time favorite Christian songs! I love the lyrics especially because I can relate to them. Many times I have to remember that things that happened yesterday are in the past. You have to ask God to forgive you for what happened and then move on. Don't live in the past and dwell on your mistakes. Always remember that you are making history everyday.
