The Wisest Thing

Don’t miss the silver lining
By looking for the gold
I saw the bronze tan fading
I’d never felt so old

Baby, if we stick together
We’ll tear this place apart

Til all the clocks run backwards
So that we never met
We’re standing with each other
By choice or chance or fate

Maybe we should stick together
And tear this place apart

Just remember when you’re contemplating time
The present’s in such short supply
When shall we live if not now?
‘S the wisest thing I’ve learned in life

Don’t miss the silver lining
By looking for the gold
I saw the bronze tan fading
I’d never felt so old

Baby we should stick together
And tear this place apart

Just remember when you’re contemplating time
The present’s in such short supply
When shall we live if not now?
‘S the wisest thing I’ve learned in life
