"Tempus Fugit" as written by and Steve James/squire Howe....
Born in the night
She would run like a leopard
That freaks at the sight
Of a mind close beside herself
And the nearer I came
How the country would change
She was using the landscape
To hide herself

More in the mind
Than the body this feeling
A sense at the end
Of a circular line
That is drawn at an angle
I see when I'm with you
To navigate waters and finally answer to, yes

If you were there you would want to be near me
Innocence, you could hold all the materials
And though nothing would really be living
It would shock Your fall into landing light
In the north sky time flies fast to the morning
The cold of the dawn it meant nothing to us
You were keeping your best situation
An answer to-yes

(Yes, yes) And the moment I see you
(Yes, yes) It's so good to be near you
(Yes, yes) And the feeling you give me
(Yes, yes) Makes me want to be with you
(Yes, yes) From the moment you tell me, yes

If you could see all the roads I have travelled
Towards some unusable last equilibrium
Run like an athlete and die like a dead beaten speed-freak
An answer to all of your answers to-yes

In the north sky time flies faster than morning
The cold of the dawn it meant nothing to us
You were keeping your best situation
An answer to Yes

(Yes, yes) And the moment I see you
(Yes, yes) It's so good to be near you
(Yes, yes) And the feeling you give me
(Yes, yes) Makes me want to be with you
(Yes, yes) If we wait for an answer
(Yes, yes) Will the silence be broken
(Yes, yes) Should we wait for an answer
(Yes, yes) Do we leave it unspoken

(Yes, yes, yes, yes)

    General CommentThis song is SOO dynamic! I love Jon, but his leaving the band opened space for great changes...
    Squire's feeling is fantastic, most rock listeners cannot imagine that a bass guitar can be so exciting!

    General CommentI think it`s kind of a "carpe diem" spirit.
    Time flies (Tempus Fugit), so live your life to the fullest.
