    Hi guys,

    Here's a new song I wrote. Posted it in the wrong forum initially, hence reposting here.
    Let me know of any suggestions on how I could make it better:


    Young boy meets pretty girl
    Offers his heart and half the world
    She obliges, lights his face with a smile

    They share a laugh and share a cry
    Promises, secrets and confessed lies
    Hopes their love stays a forever while

    - - Now they're building their eternity
    - - Brick by brick everyday
    - - Making plans and certainties
    - - Not knowing what ahead lay
    - - Fretting over future fears
    - - Regrets of yesterday
    - - Your life may last a hundred years
    - - But now you can only live today
    - - Yeah, now you can only live today

    Finally the big day came
    He takes her hand and she his name
    The preacher pronounced them man and wife

    The love grew strong, times insane
    Few months of time and some pain
    In his hands he held a whole new life

    - - So they're building their eternity
    - - Brick by brick everyday
    - - Making plans and certainties
    - - Not knowing what ahead lay
    - - Anxious about the future years
    - - Regrets from yesterday
    - - Your life may last a hundred years
    - - But now you can only live today
    - - Yeah, now you can only live today


    Love is tender, love is kind
    But its only hurt it leaves behind
    So when he decided to leave her for another

    - - She's rebuilding their eternity
    - - Brick by brick everyday
    - - Changing plans and certainties
    - - Not knowing what ahead lay
    - - Anxious about the future years
    - - Regretful yesterdays
    - - Your life may last a hundred years
    - - But now you can only live today
    - - Yeah, now you can only live today
