Live For The Moment

Swallowed by our own insignificance

Terror and glory in a million stories

Let's follow in this tangled dance

/ We'll fight on through it every day

Pray for light, but nothing's ever black and white

Though neither is it shades of grey

/ Life is hard but it's a choice

Through the wishes that you make

Let them hear your heart and voice

Even when love has the power to break

/ My light may not shine for much longer

But while I'm still here I'll make yours stronger

I wish, I wish, for something better than this

When it hurts, when it rains, through the joy and the pain

It's a beautiful, sometimes almost magic

Terrible, crazy, often tragic world

/ This bittersweet existence is too much

These contradictions cause the friction

And still it's not enough

/ We can laugh until we cry

Chase off our fears with the happy, sad tears

But we'll never want to say goodbye

/ It's not easy how things shift

We can see through truth and lies

Take this chance or you'll wonder what if

Because everybody dies

/ My light may not shine for much longer

While I'm still here I'll make yours stronger

I wish, I wish for more than this

When it hurts, when it rains, through the joy and the pain

It's a beautiful, sometimes almost magic

Terrible, crazy, often tragic world

/We glimpse oblivion in our dreams

Would you want to stay asleep

When not everything is as it seems?

/ While there's hope inside we can still glow

Despite all that we'll never know

The here and now is all we need

Forget the past, look forward, breathe

/ Together we can both shine bright

Stars will stop the dark of night

Forever we can live for the moment

I'll give you my heart and trust you to hold it

/ Because this cycle of endless life

Will always be perfect in my eyes

I hope, I dream, that this meaning is real

With the love and hate, joy and pain, different and the same

In this beautiful, sometimes almost magic

Terrible, crazy, often tragic world

The End
