Relient K - Up And Up (Acoustic) Lyrics




Yesterday was not quite what it could've been
As were most of all the days before
But I swear today, with every breath I'm breathing in
I'll be trying to make it so much more

'Cause it seems I get so hung up on the history of what's gone wrong
And the hope of a new day is sometimes hard to see
But I'm finally catching on to it, yeah, the past is just a conduit
And the light, there at the end is where I'll be

'Cause I'm on the up and up, I'm on the up and up
And I haven't given up, given up on what I know I'm capable of
Yeah, I'm on the up and up and yeah, there's nothing left to prove
'Cause I'm just trying to be a better version of me for you
A better version of me for you

To be prosperous would not require much of me
You see, contentment is the one thing it entails
To be content with where I am and getting where I need to be
And moving past the past where I have failed

But I'm finally catching on to it and yeah, the past is just a conduit
And the light, there at the end is where I'll be

Oh, 'cause I'm on the up and up, I'm on the up and up
And I haven't given up, given up on what I know I'm capable of
Yeah, I'm on the up and up and yeah, there's nothing left to prove
'Cause I'm just trying to be a better version of me for you
A better version of me for you

Never cease to supply me with what I need for a good life
So when I'm down, I'll hold my head up high
'Cause you're the reason why, yeah, you're why

I'm on the up and up, I'm on the up and up
And I haven't given up, given up on what I know I'm capable of
Yeah, I'm on the up and up, so yeah, there's nothing left to prove
'Cause I'm just trying to be a better version of me for you
I'm just trying to be a better version of me for you

Relient K Up And Up (Acoustic) Comments
  1. Camcas Rise

    This is out of this world 🌏 ya

  2. Mychael May

    Is there a 12 string acoustic guitar being used in this song? Does anyone know?

  3. Breaden Hoffmaster

    This is song is absolutely beautiful, I wish more people listened to RK still! Thiessen’s style of honest and heartfelt writing is just amazing!

  4. Mr Seen

    song helps with my anxiety of being a high strung person and always worrying about every little thing I do like walking outside and seeing people. Like I said, this helps me push forward and It means a lot to me. I HAVEN'T GIVEN UP YET!!!

    Beatrix Livesey- Stephens

    you can do this!

    YEHYEHYEHYEHYEH

    Dissent Truth- Sometimes I just tell myself, whatever happens happens. I used to replay my entire day(s) in my head and worry myself sick about mistakes I made or things I said to people. Got to the point where I had trouble making conversation. God got me through because I did a 360 all of a sudden.

    Good luck, you will get a handle on this. ;)

    Celine Jewell

    That's exactly how I've been feeling lately. Thanks for the reminder to not obsess over little things nobody else cares about. It's liberating.
