If life's a gift, then who's to blame
Where's the love, in all the pain
You got to get it together, get it right
Say what you mean if it takes all night, I'm yours

In no time at all the world could fall to pieces
In no time at all our lives could come apart
We never know where life will take us
Be ready don't hide your heart

I see you there, but look away
Words to speak, but I can't say
What's on the tip of my tongue, so close so far
If you'd look in my eyes you'd see where you are, I'm yours

In no time at all the world could fall to pieces
In no time at all our lives could come apart
We never know where life will take us
We never know where life will take us

Don't let this get away
Don't let this get away
Don't let this get away

In no time at all the world could fall to pieces
In no time at all our lives could come apart
We never know where life will take us
We never know where life will take us
Be ready don't hide your heart

    General Comment"I finished this song on my vacation two summers ago, when I spent a week at the cottage. I went up there with a few other songs that were almost done, and three of them made it to the album. The other two were Hold Onto Me and Heaven Let Me Know. That summer, I had my first "real" job as a server at a country club in town. Most of the time, I did business meetings or weddings, but there were a couple wakes that were very sad. Additionally, I remember a member's granddaughter, who was about my age, being involved in a very serious car accident. I definitely wouldn't say this song was based entirely on those events, however, I often find that things which put me in a reflective mood often begin a thought process that leads to a theme for a song. In this case, I was trying to express how we never really know what's going to happen to us in the future and because of that, I was trying to emphasize how important it is to appreciate everything around us and not leave things undone. There's been a couple of people I've known, who are much older than I am who have carried grudges for years. It's so stupid, and I don't really understand everything, but I've talked to people and we've all agreed how awful it would be if they were to go unexpectedly and never get the chance to make up and move on. The bridge in this song says, "Don't let things get away". While we can't guarantee how the future is going to turn out, we can choose what we want to do in the here and now, and chances are we'll be living with these decisions for a long time." - Nathan Piché (Article One)
