Though knowing when I live then die
I may have no way of knowing
When how I wish now I knew then
Maybe knowing anyway I
Guess I might as well be going
On with the show for all I know
To close it though I chose it too
Wondering what and how and why
I might as well guess yes again

Guessing again now even though
I seem to have been here before
Then when the answer has been no
Guess yes hereafter even so
When then may be here now no more
Here now is clearly how to be
The only way to be for me
Or anyone here now to know
The something more someone lives for

Growing and showing no sign of
Stopping dropping all else for love
Maybe like you I am one who
Must take the best just shake the rest
Away like my father shook me
The last and best the past impressed
What it gave and where it took me
By future prospects presently
As tough enough to be and do

Now may be the best time for me
Hanging on hoping for the best
Now half full of half empty then
When time to live then time to die
Like glasses half between again
Know there may be nowhere between
Us here we are now me and you
Not knowing what nor how nor why
Between though who know what we mean

Now knowing here what was not known
When as it is then here we are
Who as it were were not alone
You as me and me as you we
Two in one we who were will be
With us between as what we mean
When you are what and how and why
To me I was and will be then
As now to be and do again

Us where we are is not too far
To see through now here how we are
Tough to be enough to do see
When I am you then you are me
The yes in nowhere there between
For all we know on with the show
May be what we do anyway
And seeing you now here today
Yes maybe you know what I mean

When how I wish now I knew then
I might as well guess yes again
