I used to spend my days in temptation’s crosshairs
avoiding mistakes consumed my cares
counting the days I didn’t get shot
which most of the time weren’t really a lot
not doing that thing I considered so wrong
monopolized every verse of my song
I’ve got a different song now it’s new and improved
failing methods have now been moved
to the margins while I’ve turned loose and started running
with a pursuit for excellence you could say I’m gunning
’cause targets are falling before my eyes
I now count the days I seize the prize
I count the days I am winning
these days of righteousness and not not sinning
as I count I do much more than simply survive
these days that I count are the days I’m alive
