"Anytime" as written by and William A. Finn....
Anytime

I see a dog upon the road
Running hard to catch a cat
My car is pulling to a halt
The truck behind me doesn't know
Everything is in the balance
Of a moment I can't control
And your sympathetic strings
Are like the stirrings in my soul

I could go at anytime
There's nothing safe about this life
I could go at anytime

Find the meaning of the act
Remember how it goes
Every time you take the water
And you swim against the flow
The world is all around us
The days are flying past
And fear is so contagious

But I'm not afraid to laugh
I could go at anytime
There's nothing safe about this life
I could go at anytime

Anytime (come without warning)
Anytime (it could be so easy)
A walk in the park (or maybe when I'm sleeping)
Anytime (see the clouds come over)
Rain or shine (I make you so unhappy)
Lets make it right

I feel like I'm in love
With a stranger I'll never know
Although you're still a mystery
I'm so glad I'm not alone

I could go at anytime
There's nothing safe about this life
Make it so easy to fly in the night
I could go at anytime
I could go at anytime

    General CommentThis song is about dealing with death, the suddenness of it and it can happen at any time out of the blue. It's was inspired by his dog almost getting run over.
    'I feel like I'm in love with a stranger I'll never know, and although you're still a mystery, I'm so glad I'm not alone' is talking about the mystery and morbid wonderment of death, but he is not alone as everyone else contemplates this.
