FUTURE PAST lyrics

Rain streams down the window
and I recall the day we ran
and how on Brownsea Island meadow
You couldn't catch me then,
You wouldn't catch me now

If it's only memory
Echoing down the hallway
In whisper as you come to me
We are growing closer


Chorus:
So, don't you cry
For what will never last
Each moment created in time
It's all a future past
That we are living now.

Change is coming down the line,
I give thanks if that much stays the same
This life is not to our design
Could not have known it then,
but now I see it plain.

If all we are is memory,
Doorways on a garden
The flowers of a century
We are growing stronger


Chorus:
So, don't you cry
For what will never last
Each moment created in time
It's all a future past
That we are living now.

[Guitars]

So, don't you cry
For what will never last
Each moment created in time
It's all a future past.

So lay your gaze
On what will ever last
Each moment in time we create
It's all a future past
and we are living now.
