What is forever

a moment; a romance, from before, from now, or to be...
Time turns us all to dust, to dust,

And in light of this we must smile, smile

Laugh and play,

And kiss, childlike.

Her wild eyes and heart soak it up,

Chasing stars, reflecting the silver,

Running dreams down,

And aim to never, fill with tears,

But who can plan that,

We all cry sometimes,

We all cry sometime.

The stage breaks us all,

We crawl in ripped jeans,

Look cool and worn,

Plug in, and stare into the light.

The night is endless,

The moment eternal,

Forever is here, right now,

A grainy freeze frame,

A smile from 1926,

That to someone meant everything,

An elderly man holds his picture of her,

And weeps,

For the joy they shared,

And for all the love they lost.

I close my eyes, and forget tomorrow,

I always think ahead,

But for now, just for a moment,

Just enjoy, one frozen image,

And nothing too bad can really happen,

Nothing too bad can really happen,


A lone guitar, a single shaking string,

And a sad voice,

Singing of love.

A tear,

Falls slowly through the air,

A saline kiss,

A Holy voice calls,

A light shines.

The stage breaks us all,

The stars stay still tonight,

They just shiver there,

In the eternal sky,

In the heat of now.

She smiles,

And all is peaceful with the world.

Just keep on thinking, keep on thinking

My blues away,

Keep on living, keep on loving,

For another

lonely day.
