Each second, each hour.. is all ours to spin
Just once we will see them and then they will be
Like water escaping into the depths of a sea
These atoms, these molecules are joining to make
A canvas before us... so what will we create
A positive or a negative or something in between
Our time is like vapor if you know what I mean...
So hold them all dearly and watch them all flee:
These seconds, these moments assigned you and me..
We cannot contain them but they are all ours
Will the fizzle out sadly or burn on like the stars?
