lyrics

THE PRESENT TIME

Words & Music by: Piet Louter



Looking back the old days,
Your present moments roll away,
Wasted in your grieves and vain regrets.
Yesterday’s been burned and gone.
And only good for learning from.
If it’s not to leave out and forget.

The present time is all you have.
And when it’s passed, there’s nothing left,
But only mem’ries in your mind.
But at that time you are to give
Your mind to just that day and live
To see the lovely things
Of the very day, your life is turning on.


Worrying ‘bout the future
And everything that could occur,
The present time is lost upon you.
Tomorrow is a blank edition
Of a paper, that’s at hand in visions,
Just to understand the way you would.

The present time is all you have.
And when it’s passed, there’s nothing left,
But only mem’ries in your mind.
But at that time you are to give
Your mind to just that day and live
To see the lovely things
Of the very day, your life is turning on.
