The Here and Now – Matthews and While
From the Album ‘Here and Now’ While and Matthews

You look for the distant horizon, you live for the turn of the page
You’re spinning in cycles and you won’t disengage
But there’s more than the far destination
Between you and the end of the line
And one day you’ll wish that you’d cherished this precious time

Chorus
‘Cause life is here, now, it’s clear, how
Living the moment, will set you free
From tomorrow and yesterdays sorrow
(You look for the distant horizon, You live for the turn of the page)
Better to feel the one thing that’s real
The here and now, here and now

You’re dwelling in by-gone places, of halcyon days in the sun
You’re clinging on to a past now dead and gone
Don’t make the people that love you now
Compete with the ghosts of the past
Unlock the chains to your heart, Free at last!

Chorus
‘Cause life is here, now, it’s clear, how
Living the moment, will set you free
From tomorrow and yesterdays sorrow
(You’re dwelling in by-gone places, halcyon days in the sun)
Better to feel the one thing that’s real
The here and now, the here and now
It’s clear, how
Living the moment, will set you free
From tomorrow and yesterdays sorrow
(You look for the distant horizon, You live for the turn of the page)
Better to feel the one thing that’s real
The here and now, the here and now
