lyrics

Felt like I'd known you for all of my life
Long before you both arrived
Those black & white Polaroids signalled the shift
Before we looked into your eyes
The freedom to choose I was happy to lose
When freedom's a prison with walls
You lifted the sentence that blighted my life
And captured me once and for all

The present seems endless as seconds slide by
And birthdays roll endlessly on
Familiar rituals year after year
Who could imagine them gone
Two brilliant stars shining under the tree
Two treasures we tucked up in bed
No home movie moments recapture the time
Or words that can not be unsaid

Only the now, there's only the now
The moments roll on into days
There's only the now, only the now
Don't ever wish it away

Blink for a minute, an era has gone
All futures plunge into the past
That room full of echoes stands silent at night
Its emptiness suddenly vast
I love you forever, and long may you know
The comfort and joy that we've shared
And long may your laughter ring on in this world
Long after we're no longer there

Only the now, there's only the now
The moments roll on into days
There's only the now, only the now
Don't ever wish it away
