Ah sweet mystery of life....

Even As We Live

I need to believe in something
I want it to be you
I need a talisman to hold on to
Every step I’ve taken
Every planted seed
Takes me away from what I need

No one ever told me
Had to find out on my own
Now it seems I’ve always known that

Even as we love we leave
Even as we live we die
Walking through this day’s dream
Until the nightly rehearsal for the final goodbye
Even as we take we need
And even as we rise we fall
And even though the lost will lead
They’re just trying to make some sense of it all

I need a reminder
Of the places I come from
So I can see what I’ve become
What have we been leaving
When we run to something new
Whatever waits for me waits for you too

No one ever told me
Had to find out on my own
Now I know I’m not alone

Even as we love we leave
Even as we live we die
Walking through this day’s dream
Until the nightly rehearsal for the final goodbye
Even as we take we need
And even as we rise we fall
And even though the lost will lead
They’re just trying to make some sense of it all

It’s not so bad
It’s not so lonely
You’re not the only one
Who wonders what’s to come

Even as we love we leave
Even as we live we die
Walking through this day’s dream
Until the nightly rehearsal for the final goodbye
Even as we take we need
And even as we rise we fall
And even though the lost will lead
They’re just trying to make some sense of it all
