my lyricsbox
Living in the present tense
When you lose the past
The future makes no sense

Living in the present tense
When there's nothing to blame
No victim of consequence
Living in the present tense

Crawling out
Secure and confident
Imbued with innocence
Ready for the world

Suddenly
The view was more intense
Living in a different
Kind of world

You're living
Living in the present tense
When you lose the past
The future makes no sense

Living in the present tense
When there's nothing to blame
No victim of consequence
Living in the present tense

Something is said
It made me step outside
The moment eyes pan right
And left around my world

Open yourself
Up to the possibility
Aware of some reality
Outside your world

In a silent universe
The moment can be so real
You almost can't stand it

In a distant universe
Distracted from ourselves
You can't help but wonder

In a crowded universe
When the talking turns to noise
You almost start laughing

You're living
Living in the present tense
When you lose the past
The future makes no sense

Living in the present tense
When there's nothing to blame
No victim of consequence

Living in the present tense
When there's nothing to blame
No victim of consequence
Living in the present tense
Living in the present tense
This song is from the album "My Favorite Headache".
