"Right Now" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
Don't want to wait til tomorrow
Why put it off another day
One more walk through problems
Built up, and stand in our way ,ah
One step ahead, one step behind me
Now you gotta run to get even
Make future plans, don't dream about yesterday, hey
C'mon turn, turn this thing around
Right now, hey
It's your tomorrow
Right now,
C'mon,it's everything
Right now,
Catch a magic moment, do it
Right here and now
It means everything
Miss the beat, you lose the rhythm
And nothing falls into place, no
Only missed by a fraction
Slipped a little off your pace, oh
The more things you get, the more you want
Just trade in one for the other
Workin so hard, to make it easier, whoa
Got to turn, c'mon turn this thing around
Right now, hey
It's your tomorrow
Right now
C'mon, it's everything
Right now
Catch that magic moment, do it
Right here and now
It means everything
It's enlightened me, right now
What are you waitin for
Oh, yeah, right now

Right now, hey
It's your tomorrow
Right now
C'mon, it's everything
Right now
Catch that magic moment, and do it right
Right now
Right now, oh, Right now
It's what's happening?
Right here and now
Right now
It's right now
Oh,
Tell me, what are you waiting for
Turn this thing around

    General CommentTo me, its basically telling a guy or girl to just go for it. You know, go big or go home. There's no time like the present, and like the song says...don't let things get away. Ya never wanna wonder "what if"

    General CommentIt's always said Jesus christ was the only perfect man, I belive that it isnt impossable for us to be perfect, it's as simple as switching a lightswitch, but then again it's the hardiest thing in the world, it's self motivation, disapline, to do whats right, thing whats right, life rightously... and if your not, turn it around, right now......

    General Commentthis song gives me hope that there are other people in the world, besides me, who are just as impulsive with their feelings as i am...and that i'm not the only hopeless romantic left. this is the way this song makes me feel, not sure why...but seeing and hearing this song live in concert made me feel all the more hopeful.

    General CommentJust like most Van Halen tunes, this track was written years earlier. Eddie used parts of the music for the soundtrack to the movie, "Wild Life."
