This Moment

consider the spinning of the earth,
and the passing of each wave.
there's little enough time for now,
let alone look back and say

it's what I've done
and where I've been,
my fortune doesn't change.
we're kings and pawns,
all said and done;
we're moving to a new age.

I've got no choice in the matter,
I'd rather sit here and wait.
but if I let myself crumble,
watch myself stumble...
I'll never get to meet my fate.

sit here a moment longer,
draw this minute out.
once it's gone, it's gone for good,
and never again come about.

I've been who I've been,
made all that din,
and wished I could take it all back.
I slipped and I fell,
and cried for a spell,
but now I'm standing, looking down the track.

soon, I'll move on,
feel the water and the sun,
but for now, the tides still abate.
