  1. Now and Evermore

This song was tough to write and tough to produce. In a world focused on ‘growth’, not sustainability, change marches on. Truth is, I hate change, despise loss, and fear mortality. Gotta protect and shelter my loved ones.

Lyrics

We find our way thru forests
We make our way thru dreams
We go thru ever-changing worlds
There is no home it seems
Life is not kind
There is no future
No warranty implied
We say it’s cool
We say we don’t mind
But that’s such a lie
Life goes on
Life goes on without us
Life goes on and on
I need hope every day
There’s a prayer that I say
Hear my prayer to the wind
Feel the wheel take a spin

Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo
Hey Grim Reaper don’t you show your face around my door
Keep my family safe from harm for now and evermore
Looking at life closely I am shaken to the core
Keep my friends safe from harm for now and evermore
Love is the preserver that carries me to shore
Keep me safe from harm . . .

We journey through a desert
Then thru a frozen land
The scenery shifts restlessly
No solid place to stand
It's not a game
There are no winners
No prizes when it's done
We act blasé
So gay and careless
While there's a setting sun
Life goes on
Life goes on without us
Life goes on and on
I need hope every day
There’s a prayer that I say
Hear my prayer to the wind
Feel the wheel take a spin

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Hey Grim Reaper don’t you show your face around my door
Keep my family safe from harm for now and evermore
Looking at life closely I am shaken to the core
Keep my friends safe from harm for now and evermore
Love is the preserver that carries me to shore
Keep me safe from harm . . .

Ah, ah, ah, ah
Hey Grim Reaper don’t you show your face around my door
Keep my family safe from harm for now and evermore
Looking at life closely I am shaken to the core
Keep my friends safe from harm for now and evermore
Love is the preserver that carries us to shore
Keep us safe from harm . . .
