There is only so much juice
You can suck out of a fruit
And the color changes fast
When an apple's cut in half

Every ladder ends somewhere
Better climb its steps with care
I'll be the one who waits too long
Turns around and finds it's gone

Choose the life you want to live
Give the love you want to give
Take the moment when it comes
Let it lead you, let it run

Feel the moisture in the air
Feel the fingers through your hair
Don't be shy when asking, too
Be that way you always were meant to

You say that life is long
You took the words
Out of my mind
Life is long and the world is small
Our paths will cross
Some other time

Given shelter, blessed by rain
To our common unknown aim
From the north side of the town
To the south where we lay down

Under floodlights, buckled stars
Without people, without cars
When I ask you without sound
Will you answer without words?

Through the moonlight sweeping down
When you close your eyes you're fine
You can prophesize the steps
You can visualize the maps

If you act upon it when
There's no trace of doubt within
When your heart is freshly stunned
You cannot fail, you cannot act long

You say that life is long
You took the words
Out of my mind
Life is long and the world is small
Our paths will cross
Some other time

You say that life is long
You took the words
Out of my mind
Life is long and the world is small
Our paths will cross
Some other time
