Gone Tomorrow

Why is it so hard to believe
That everything happens for a reason
People are in our lives for a lifetime, reason or season

Why do we choose to ignore all the signs we see before us
Ignorance is the only word that comes to mind

Why do we choose to only see what we want to see in front of us
Even though the proof is standing right in front of you and me
When will we learn the harsh lessons we are here to learn
If only we opened our eyes to see

That life is what we make it and the signs are there for us to follow
People come into our lives today
And before we know it they’re gone tomorrow

We don’t see what is standing in front of us
Our eyes are always closed
We don’t know what the signs say
Ignorance is here to stay

If only we opened our eyes and saw
What is so plainly clear to see
That standing right in front of us
Are the answers for you and me

Yes! Life is what we make it and the signs are there for us to follow
People come into our lives today
And before we know it
They’re gone tomorrow

We all think we’re here on this earth for a very, very long time
We all deserve just what we receive
We can decide to be cruel or kind

Yes! Life is what we make it and the signs are there for us to follow
People come into our lives today
And before we know it
They’re gone tomorrow

Yes! Life is what we make it and the signs are there for us to follow
Many people will come into our lives today
And before we know it
They’ll be gone tomorrow
