Lyrics:

Look in my eyes, trickle down lies
Nobody cries, sittin' up in the blue skies
Here now, gone next day, all you've borrowed's blown away
Earthquakes, ground shakes, levy breaks, heartaches, mistakes
Sometimes it feels like we're just staring at the sun . . .

If you see me goin' by, with my head up in the sky
Bring me down, bring me down
If you see me goin' by, with my head up in the sky
Please don't leave me floatin'

Nobody comes, nobody goes, nobody cares, nobody knows
Nobody seeing' what goes on's a little strange
Whatever did become of the setting sun?
And what happened to the daring ones?
The ones who weren't ever scared to make a change

We're here today, gone tomorrow, (one life, one chance) and all the sorrow,
(it's in our hands) will always remain
Here today, gone tomorrow, (one life, one chance) and all the sorrow,
(it's in our hands) will always remain

If you see me goin' by, with my head up in the sky
bring me down, bring me down
If you see me goin' by, with my head up in the sky
bring me down………..

(gone tomorrow, here today)

(one life, one chance)

(Spoken word)
Until the day I passed away, I hoped someone would listen
I was sent here for this one reason, to give you this message
So it can be spread from face to face, and place to place
I was written off and misunderstood but still hoped
my existence would have changed these places and these faces
For someone to have listened to my message . . .
I lived, I loved, and I was. So did you listen?
For I was the chosen one and this was my mission, so did anybody listen?

The years fly by in the wink of an eye
Still got nothin' to say so you're sayin' goodbye, moonlight, lights the way,
A resurrection holiday
Fingerprints, subtle hints, little stints of arrogance,
So can you see it or am I the only one now?

Here today, gone tomorrow, (one life, one chance) and all the sorrow,
(it's in our hands) will always remain
Here today, gone tomorrow, (one life, one chance) and all the sorrow,
(it's in our hands) will always remain
