Lyrics

Livin' In the Now
© Words and Music by Chris Chickering and Greg Barnhill
2012. All rights reserved

Sometimes the self can leave you inwardly blind
We've all been victims, time to time
Don't let your fear delay you
Don't let your ego play you by
Living the future in your mind

Sometimes the guilt can grab you
From out of the night
Creep in and keep you paralyzed
But if you can take control of
All that you know you're made of well
Everything's gonna be alright

Let's make no illusion
There can be no substitution
For being in the moment that you're in
And when you finally wake up
And you wash away the make up
This is where your true life will begin
I found out

Nothin' feels like
Living in the now

This is the universal
Truth that we hold
And it goes unused
Until we know
But when we find the power
This is our finest hour and
That's when our future will unfold

So, let's make no illusion
There can be no substitution
For being in the moment that you're in
And when you finally wake up
And you wash away the make up
This is when your destiny begins
And you find out
Nothin' feels like
Living in the now

It's not too late to turn it all around
Whatever's lost can always still be found

Let's make no illusion
There can be no substitution
For being in the moment that you're in

And when we finally wake up
And we wash away the make up
This is when our destiny begins
And we find out
Nothin' feels like
Living in the now
Living in the now

Oh, you got the present
You got the present now
You got the present now
