Here Today

I'm a long lost wandering soul trying to find where I belong
And I’m looking for place where it feels alright to be wrong
Just a loud mouth, hard-headed, fool-hearted, stubborn old son of a gun
Chip off the old block with a chip on my shoulder that weighs a ton
 
All I know for sure is that nothing is forever
And all that matters is how we get along together
Life gets harder every day that I get older
I hope I figure out why I'm here before it's over
 
‘Cause we’re here today
And gone tomorrow
We’re here today
And gone tomorrow
We’re here today
And gone tomorrow
 
I’ve been stuck at home alone on nights when no one calls
And I've had nights where I could take my pick or have them all
And I've had those days where I search my pockets for nickel and a dime
And I've had those days where trying to make money was a waste of time
 
I've had shiny brand new leather penny loafers
And I've had torn up used old tennies handed over
All I know for sure is that nothing is forever
And all that matters is how get along together
 
‘Cause we’re here today
And gone tomorrow
We’re here today
And gone tomorrow
We’re here today
And gone tomorrow
We ain’t promised tomorrow
So I’m gonna live for today
 
Been from five-star hotels to cockroach motels
And rodeo drive retails to thrift store re-sales
I’ve had chauffeured town cars to an old broken down car
It ain’t what happens to you it’s what you do about it
 
‘Cause we’re here today
And gone tomorrow
We’re here today
And gone tomorrow
We’re here today
And gone tomorrow
We’re here today
And gone tomorrow
