Everything In Life Is Only For Now…

Everything In Life Is Only For Now…

Posted by allisonlefkowitcz in Change, For Strength, Song Lyrics, Transitions 21 Feb 2011

When going through a difficult time in our lives we tend to think that the challenging period is going to last forever. Below is a funny, helpful song from the musical ‘Avenue Q’ which reminds us that everything in life is only for now.

Everything In Life is Only For Now: Photograph by Genna Brocone

For Now:

Everyone’s a little bit unsatisfied.

Everyone goes ’round a little empty inside.

Take a breath,
Look around,

Swallow your pride,

For now…

For now…

Nothing lasts,

Life goes on,

Full of surprises.

You’ll be faced with problems of all shapes and sizes.

You’re going to have to make a few compromises…
For now…

For now…

But only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now!

For now we’re healthy.

For now we’re employed.

For now we’re happy…

If not overjoyed.

And we’ll accept the things we cannot avoid, for now…

For now…

For now…

For now…

But only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now!

Only for now!
(For now there’s life!)
Only for now!
(For now there’s love!)
Only for now!
(For now there’s work!)
For now there’s happiness!
But only for now!
(For now discomfort!)
Only for now!
(For now there’s friendship!)
Only for now (For now!)
Only for now!

Only for now! (Sex!)
Is only for now! (Your hair!)
Is only for now! (George Bush!)
Is only for now!

Don’t stress,
Relax,
Let life roll off your backs
Except for death and paying taxes,
Everything in life is only for now!

Each time you smile…

…Only for now

It’ll only last a while.

…Only for now

Life may be scary…

…Only for now
But it’s only temporary

Ba-dum ba-dum
Ba-dum ba-dum
Ba dum ba-dum
Ba-da da da da
ba-da da-da da da-da
Ba-dum ba-da, ba-dum ba-da
ohhhh-

Everything in life is only for now.
