Will We Have Long Enough

Who are we
Where are we going
And will we have long enough
______To figure it out

What is this world
What is our place in it
And will we have long enough
______To see all the stars

(Who am I
What should I do
And will I have long enough
______To learn how to rest)

Why do we smile
Why do we strive
And will we have long enough
______To find what we need

What is a lifetime
What is it worth
And will we have long enough
______To come to the edge

(What do I want
What do I fear
And will I have long enough
______To understand why)

When should we weep
When should we dance
And will we have long enough
______To drink deep of both

How should we live
How should we die
And how can we know
______What long enough is

(Why am I restless
Why am I calloused
And why do I think
______Life ever could be
______Long enough)

there’s a life beyond time
