"Starting Now" is the first single and title track from Toad the Wet Sprocket's upcoming album, their first full-length release since 2013.


I’ve wasted years
Won’t waste another instant
I fed my fears
With things that haven’t been yet
Well hope don’t mean you sit there
Just waiting for the changes
It’s fighting for the long shot
It’s getting in the trenches

Starting now

All I own
Is borrowed from my children
I’ll leave this world
More bright than when I came in
So starting with the next breath
I’ll dig a little deeper
Live a little kinder
And love a little sweeter

Starting now

The best time to change
Was many years ago
Next best thing
Is starting where we are
If heaven isn’t waiting
If all there is is this
Why wait another minute
To trust the heart and live

Starting now
