J-Future Shock


I walked into the future today
And found it scary
I wondered about us
About attention, intention
That is not a place to be
Now is the place to be
Where love is
Where you are
Where I am
The only place
We can be
Now is the only place
We can be

I have wandered into the future before
And found it wonderful
I dreamed about us
About loving, living
That is not a place to be
Now is the place to be
Where love is
Where you are
Where I am
The only place
We can be
Now is the only place
We can be
