When he looks into her eyes
He sees only the truth
Telling him he's been living a lie
over and over like a line in a song
About all the love he let pass by.

Her heart's like a wave and he's the tide.

They're not forever they're just for today
One part be my lover, one part go away.

He's like a boxer who had to retire
After winning but killing a man
He's got all the moves and none of the courage
Afraid to throw a punch that might land.

Not too much later she can't meet his glance
You see her start pulling away
Over and over like fire and ice
One is color, one is grey.

They're not forever, they're just for today
One part be my lover, one part go away.

So if you know how 
Why don't you say'em a prayer
They're need all the help they can get
They remember too much about what went wrong
It might be they should learn to forget.

Forget themselves in each other
And leave what belongs in the past
Carry their hearts like a newborn child
Cause it's only the moment that lasts.

They're not forever,they're just for today
One part be my lover,one part go away.
