    This life is the best we've ever had.

    (Inspired by The Ferryman...)

    Tonight we fly
    Over the houses
    The streets and the trees
    Over the dogs down below
    They'll bark at our shadows
    As we float by on the breeze

    Tonight we fly
    Over the chimney tops
    Skylights and slates -
    Looking into all your lives
    And wondering why
    Happiness is so hard to find

    Over the doctor, over the soldier
    Over the farmer, over the poacher
    Over the preacher, over the gambler
    Over the teacher, over the rambler
    Over the lawyer, over the dancer
    Over the voyeur,over the builder and the destroyer,
    Over the hills and far away

    Tonight we fly
    Over the mountains
    The beach and the sea
    Over the friends that we've known
    And those that we now know
    And those who we've yet to meet

    And when we die
    Oh, will we be
    That disappointed
    Or sad
    If heaven doesn't exist
    What will we have missed
    This life is the best we've ever had

    Gorgeous melody and very inspiring lyrics again,over the pair of opposites and taking them with you, the flight of life. I really like the end of the song.
    Thank you Soen

    This is it
    Here and now
    Not some other reality
    Not somewhere else
    Not some time else
    This place
    This present moment
    Here and now
    There is no ideal set of circumstances
    There is no perfect future
    Enlightenment is here
    We stand at its gate and
    Enter it
    Moment by moment

    Amazing how some folks just intuitively have this insight into the dharma. Told with a "katsu!" or a guitar. The dharma moves through us all, sings songs with our voices, and is the very melody that courses through our veins, "thump-thump, thump-thump". Thank you for these gifts.
