We live our lives in the now and then,

We choose the rules for the how and when.

Things are the same as they’ve always been

We do it once and begin again.

I write some words and watch them fly

I wonder where, I wonder why

I kick the earth, I swat the sky

And gaze at dolphins swimming by

Doesn’t matter what I do

I never learn what’s really true

I look things up and take things down

And move the questions all around.

But nothing ever really fits

I sometimes want to call it quits

But then it all starts up again

I live my life in the now and then

I choose the rules for how and when

Its stays the way it’s always been

I do it once

and start again
