lyrics

I've been hearing these predictions, that some things are gonna change
That the planetary orbits will all soon be rearranged
That the earth's delicate balance will soon get knocked from its axis
That if you have religion then nows the time to practice

but i feel deep in my heart that if the worlds do split apart
we'll go right back to the start, just like some pious piece of art
So I have no time to waste with all these mysteries of space
I've got a dream to chase with my bag and guitar case

So I say...
that the world might end tomorrow but I'm still here today

Be not anxious (be not anxious), be not stressed (be not stressed)
For the Lord of love above knows whats best
For tomorrow, come what may
I'ma live my life in freedom here today

Why should I fight, (why should I fight) what I can't see (what I can't see)
and disregard all thats in front of me (right here for me)
yes every breath is an opportunity, no nothing in this life's a guarantee

So I say...
that the world might end tomorrow but I'm still here today

Oh can't you see, that you're just so free,
Just as free as you decide that you can be
Do what you can, with what you've got
And before you know man you'll have a lot

So here I stand, at the sea's bay, thinking bout the last words that I'll say
before the waves, take me in, and I fade into the darkness yet again
