Enjoy every sunset, every kiss, every sandwich.


Quit the game, lay it down
the flashing lights, the talking town
erase the lines, put down the glass
It won’t last

Morning light spills around
moonlight shadows leave the ground
daylight peels away midnight’s mask
It won’t last

Rainy morning, she is gone
I should have known all along
human love fades like the noonday grass
It won’t last

We walk, we talk, we touch, we feel
that’s how we know this thing is for real

All the beauty, all the pain
all the sunshine, all the rain
this fire show of words, magic and good deeds all up in a flash
It won’t last
