Present Tense

[Click here to listen to a snipette of Present Tense.]

When I was young
Oh, I was, I was
I was a child
Oh, I was, I was
I went to play
Oh, I did, I did
When I was young
Oh, still am, still am

Drifting sands and making plans
Making plans I understand
It's a beautiful day in my neighborhood
To make some sense in this present tense

When I get old
Oh, I will, I will
I'll be grown-up
Oh, I will, I will
I'll go to work
Oh, I do, I do
When I get old
Oh, never, ever

Drifting sands and making plans
Don't understand these drifting sands
It's a beautiful day in my neighborhood
But I can't make sense of this present tense

When I am me
Oh, I am, I am
I am so free
Oh, I am, I am
I sing for you
Oh, I do, I do
When I am me
Oh, am I, ever

Drifting sands unmade my plans
I understand how I understand
It's a beautiful day in my neighborhood
And there's no sense to this present tense

When I was he
Oh, was I, was I
When I am she
Oh, will I, will I
When I am me
Oh, am I, ever
Never, ever
Never, ever
