This all will be over

when you look at your child,
tell me: What do you see?
those big, curious eyes
wondering constantly

make them shine, take them in
their laughter, their tears,
their lust and their hunger,
their joy and their fears

take a long, long good look
and enjoy, while you can

one day this all will be over
all will be over
one day
one day
one day
and all will be good

you sit at the pool and think
live can be good
you treat yourself well
more often you should

the water is splashing
the wind in the trees
no other sounds, only
the rustling of leaves

make every day count
and enjoy, while you can

one day this all will be over

you have a good time
going out with your friends
and you eat and you drink
the night never ends

you talk and you chill
you dance and you sing
you laugh and you feel
the life happening

take it in, live it out
and enjoy, while you can

one day this all will be over

live is not fair, it
puts you to the test
when things go wrong
does not let you rest

it bites you, it hits you,
it stings and it pains
it’s messed up by people
it hurts and it drains

the truth will prevail,
set you free again

one day this all will be over
all will be over
one day
one day
one day
and all will be good
