Come, taste the wine
Come, lose yourself
Taste this time
But keep it well

Only love it all
With heart and head
For there is no drinking
After you're dead

Dive and swim
In the amber ocean
See all that you can
In this new emotion

Embrace it now
Before it's skin sheds
For there is no drinking
After you're dead

Stand back to back
With yourself again
As you spin and reel
Like a new found friend

And have it all
With heart and hands
For there is no love making
After you're dead

Today is but a second
If tomorrow you may die
And empty pages glistening
To eternity's lie

And time is money's worth
Encased upon the wall
That brings our day of reckoning
Much closer to us all

Time will pass you by

Light the candle
And burn it well
For only time knows
What it cannot yet tell

Only love it all
With heart and head
For there is no drinking
After you're dead
