All Today

Oh to be somewhere

Or somebody else

Oh to have someone 

All to myself

 

Say that you love me

Say good lines

Say that the love you have

Won't ever die 

 

In my head I hear a telephone

With the roundest ring

To the tune of a future

Where no God on high sings

 

From no wet hall of heaven 

No great echoing song

Just the steam off a dream where

Absolutely nothing goes on 

 

But me out of my mind

Feed my body to the crowd    

I already feel pointless

The size and the shape of a cloud

 

All today, all at once

Everything changed, under the sun

Oh I was totally surprised, mentally preparing for years

When it flashed before my eyes, oh it was more than I could fear

My world far behind me, oh what a ringing of the ears...

 

Oh to be somewhere

Or somebody else

Oh to have someone 

All to myself

 

Say that you love me

say no more lies

Say that the love you have

won't ever die

 

{All today

All at once}
