Here and Now

The sun must set to rise
The light will leave your eyes again
Then breaking like morning’s dawn
Does summer feel the winter come

The hardest part of life
Is to live while you’re alive my friend
So sing an unwritten song
Or repent for the deeds you left undone

This is Here
This is Now
It’s the moment that we live for
And we just can’t live without
It’s all clear to me now
We’ve already started dying
And our time is running out
Oh, Right Now

Time is ours to steal
She’s a secret to reveal my friend
And when your children have all grown
You’ll wait by the window
And wish them all back home

Walk a little further off the beaten path
And we’ll drive on even if we get there last
Our backs against the wall
And we will lunge and bite
And we’ll rage, rage, rage
against the dying of the light
