Lyrics

HERE AND NOW -CARY MORIN

SUNDAY MORNING
AND THE COLD SETTLES
ON THE NEIGHBORHOOD
EVERYTHING AROUND ME
ALL IN FLAMES
BURNING DOWN
JUST LIKE I KNEW IT WOULD

IN THE HERE AND THE NOW
THERE ARE TROUBLED TIMES
AND IT HOLDS ME LIKE A CHILD

IN THE HERE AND THE NOW
THERE ARE TROUBLED TIMES
AND IT WON'T LET GO WON'T LET GO
COME AND SIT WITH ME BY THE FIRE

NEW YEAR IS ROARING
LIKE A MOUNTAIN LION
I CANNOT AVOID ITS GAZE
STANDING CLOSE TO THE FIRE
I DON'T FEEL WARM
GONE ARE MY BETTER DAYS

IN THE HERE AND THE NOW
THERE ARE TROUBLED TIMES
AND IT HOLDS ME LIKE A CHILD

IN THE HERE AND THE NOW
THERE ARE TROUBLED TIMES
AND IT WON'T LET GO WON'T LET GO
COME AND SIT WITH ME BY THE FIRE

WHEN I FEEL LIKE I HAVE NO PLACE TO BE
I THINK ABOUT MY FAMILY
I HOPE THEY REMEMBER THE BETTER DAYS
AND I HOPE THAT THEY REMEMBER ME

IN THE HERE AND THE NOW
THERE ARE TROUBLED TIMES
AND IT HOLDS ME LIKE A CHILD

IN THE HERE AND THE NOW
THERE ARE TROUBLED TIMES
AND IT WON'T LET GO WON'T LET GO
COME AND SIT WITH ME BY THE FIRE
