BE HERE NOW

Are these rumours it’s the end of days
Just a phase that every generation finds itself going through?
Do you wonder if we’re in the last dance?
A final chance to raise a glass before we say adieu

Don’t give me hope, don’t give me despair,
If your running scared or falling to your knees in prayer,
Just be here now, be here now,
And be my friend where the past present future blend
Be here now.

Are the stories that the end is nigh
The same old tales of a falling sky we tell to our children?
Or do you wonder if it calls for last rites?
Cause this time we’re really turning off the lights and passing into extinction

Don’t give me hope, don’t give me despair.
Wake up from your dreams, break free from your cares
And be here now, be here now
And be my friend where the past present future blend
Be here now

We watch the news
And search for clues,
Hungry for another muse
To read the runes
The stars and signs
Or a fork in the road
Or the end of the line

Don’t give me hope, don’t give me despair,
In this moment search your heart, how much love can you share
And be here now, be here now,
And be my friend where the past present future blend
Be here now.
