Now is All There Is

Grey fog hangs along the bay,
Like the ghost of yesterday
As we duck into a waterfront hotel
Pint of Evan Williams in your purse
Stolen passion is the sweetest curse
My heartís pounding as I tap the counter bell

Then the night clerkís lifeless eyes
Tell me someday Iíll regret your kiss
But somedayís beyond my view,
Cos, Baby, when Iím with you
Now is all there is

Dusty rubber tree beside the wall,
Threadbare carpet down the dingy hall
And you whisper as I fumble for the key
Far above judgemental streets,
We make love in secret sheets
Cos this tiny room has somehow set us free

Then the old maidís tired eyes
Tell me someday Iíll regret your kiss
But somedayís beyond my view,
Cos, Baby, when Iím with you
Now is all there is
Now is all there is

Gasoline and fire
Mystíry, danger and desire
Toss a match and light it
So our dreams can be ignited

Then the cabbieís lonely eyes
Tell me someday Iíll regret your kiss
But somedayís beyond my view,
Cos, Baby, when Iím with you
Now is all there is

Grey fog hangs along the bay,
Like the ghost of yesterday
But now is all there is
Now is all there isÖ

This rang home for me cause I have been thinking about spiritual things since i've lost alot of people lately.

So the question if right now is all there is has come up often.

Now can be a good thing or a bad thing, if everybody thinks now is all there is, then we'd all be doing alot of drinking and causing chaos.

Thought this was good.

I like it a lot. it paints a vivid picture of a slice of life.

and I think I have SEEN that dusty old rubber tree :-)

might have been the Mace in Reno the last time I was there before it closed. or possibly that hotel on 6th street in Sacramento. A lot of hotels have a slow aging process where they go from fine hotel, to old hotel, to shabby hotel with dusty plants and endtables in the halls, to weekly flophouse for bums and junkies, to abandoned building with dusty bums and junkies in the halls, to site of some new building.

When the Old Maid's tired eyes are right there next to you in the bed, and you have no memory of meeting her or the booze or the ambience of the hotel, you are glad as hell that now is all there will be. Will there be a new verse about the regrets being punctuated by shots at the free clinic? My regrets were delivered repeatedly in the stories of things I did that I will never remember, but others will never let me forget. Thanks for the reminder.

32 years sober.

Just Plain Quotes
"Money is worst reason to be motivated NOT to do anything. Instead of letting those concerns STOP you, use it to motivate yourself to find an alternate solution that bypasses money. You will soon find that your own resourcefulness is worth far more than a pile of paper money." ‚ÄďBrian Austin Whitney
