Lyrics

Lesson for Today

She came into being, walked into the sea
The water came and washed her soul away
I heard somebody cry, ?She?s far too young to die.?
Tomorrow might not come for today

And I can?t tell the future but it seems to want to say
?I?ve given you this lesson for today.
You take it or you leave it ?cause I don?t really care.
You?re the only one that?s in your way.?

A thought came from the gray, the wind pushed it away
Borne upon the sails of the past
A ship we thought was lost, brought back but what the cost
The feeling that we had is fading fast

Ch

Jenny can you save me? I feel I?m coming down
The high just doesn?t seem to last
You?ve given me the reason to look beyond today
And step into tomorrow from the past

Ch x 2
