All There Is Is Now

Description
Not sure what "genre" this is... I set out to write this song about "living in the present" but it ended up more of a "get past the past" message for aging Jesus-freaks like me. Whatever the message you hear, I think the music turned out pretty good - GarageBand strikes again!

Lyrics
So many faces known to me
They seem to change so suddenly
Thru the years it’s hard to see
The changes on the way.

Then suddenly I realize
That thru another person’s eyes
The signs of time - the time that flies
are fading all away.

All there is is now, and the promise of tomorrow
And the memories of all the yesterdays gone by
All we have is now, and we fall into the future
From the pinnacle of yesterdays piled high
But only in our memories can we discover how
To realize the truth at last: that all there is is now.

And so, I go on every day
I can’t go any other way!
And stay as young as I can stay
while life speeds on ahead

I see myself as I was then,
And still remember “way back when”
I wish those days would come again,
but tomorrow comes instead.

All there is is now, and the promise of tomorrow
And the memories of all the yesterdays gone by
All we have is now, and we fall into the future
From the pinnacle of yesterdays piled high
But only in our memories can we discover how
To realize the truth at last: that all there is is now.

Very nice changes and melody. I really like the arrangement and time (6/8?) signature. Especially like the end of the chorus "but only in our memories..." and the chord changes here. Smooth production, too. Really enjoyable post.

Time signature?
Sort of 8/8 with lots of triplets? And I've always been a fan of Major-7ths in unexpected places.
Check out my latest song called We Wish You Love

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
