Here Today

People seem drawn to sing this song with us, which is a good sign as far as I am concerned.

I've had my share of good times
The taste of love, the kiss of wine
I must have played a thousand tunes
From town to town in crowded rooms


And I've tried to stand up and be strong
I've tried to help my friends along
And when I'm gone, they'll weep for me
But I'll be a fading memory

 

We're here today, and then we're gone
This life will end just like a song
We only have this little time
So come and let our voices 'twine


Perhaps you'll find some souvenir
Among the things I've gathered here
A little tune, a happy rhyme
To recall these fleeting times

 

Every once in a while
You might think of me and smile
You'll hum a tune we used to know
Back before I had to go

 

We're here today, and then we're gone
This life will end just like a song
We only have this little time
So come and let our voices 'twine

 

People cheat, they steal and lie
They bleed the earth, they foul the sky
I've tried to walk the path that winds
And leave just these few tunes behind

 

So when you hear the night bird cry
Won't you think of me and sigh
And when the wind sings through the trees
Won't you sometimes think of me?

 

We're here today, and then we're gone
This life will end just like a song
We only have this little time
So come and let our voices 'twine
