Story Behind The Song

It happened on a summer morning at 8 o?clock,
I never saw it coming.
Things were going fine,
Then my whole life flashed before my eyes.

Things have changed, they?re not the same,
I overcame my worst to get the most out of my life.
From now on, I?ll sing this song to remind me of the ways things could have been.

With a spring in my step and a smile on my face,
I feel surround by amazing Grace,
A life or death situation, came to pass,
And put things into place.
