lyrics

Carpe Diem

If there’s a shadow there must be a light,
If you see colour then there’s black and white,
The cloud you want it has a silver line,
Clock watching for a job’s a waste of time,

My mind’s making appointments that my body can’t keep,
Got so much I want to do ain’t got no time to sleep,

You got to do it now ‘cos time won’t wait,
You put it off too long it’ll be too late,
Live for today now it’s the only way,
I spend my life keeping up with yesterday,

The rocking horse is busy but it does not progress,
Activity or value? That’s the question that tests,

If I compare a rut and comfort zone,
I see the difference is the depth alone,
The lists I make don’t really mean a thing,
I want to read more books but books don’t ring,

I don’t have the time to be in a hurry,
Vital not urgent for a life without worry.
