Here Today

I’m not asking you to trust me.
I’m not making any promises.
You can hold on to your innocence
If you want to,

But I’m not looking at that contract
Before I even get to know you.
You can keep it in your briefcase,
And you can keep your suitcase, too.

I’m only here today.
-- I don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow.
I’m here today.
-- That’s all I know, and you don’t have to follow.
I’m here today,
-- And I could be gone tomorrow.
I’m here today,
-- And that’s all I ask of you.

So come on, if you want to,
Come and take a walk beside me.
If it starts to feel like work,
Then you have better things to do.

But have you ever seen the sun shine?
Let me tell you that it’s alright.
Step out at your leisure.
Just don’t ask me to be true.

I’m only here today.
-- I don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow.
I’m here today.
-- That’s all I know, and you don’t have to follow.
I’m here today,
-- And I could be gone tomorrow.
I’m here today,
-- And that’s all I ask of you.
