Living in the past
Regretting all the things I did
The mistakes I made
Trapped in my head
With all my sorrow
And anger
And every other feeling
I kept bottled up inside
I don’t know of the people I’m hurting
Friends and family
At the brink of insanity
At the brink of no return…

Living in the future
Waiting for things to change
For things to get better
Not knowing when that will be
Not knowing what that is
Not doing anything to help it come
Not hoping or praying or standing up
Just waiting
Ignoring the problems of today
Waiting for everyone else to work them out
Putting on a phony smile
And saying ‘it will get better’
It will get better
It will get better…

Living in the moment
The present
The today
Holding to every second
Like it’s the last
And letting it blow away
Like dandelion seeds
Embracing the right now
With everything I have
And giving life all I’ve got
Helping make the world
A better place
Whenever I can
Making a better tomorrow
Sticking with reality
And holding on with all my strength
And all my soul
