Seems the scenes, they don’t change
All the actors remain the same
Stuck in a black-and-white set
When all the worlds of colour are red

Is it just me, or is life passing us by?
We breathe then we eat then we sleep
Then we drink and we die, then we die

If not now, then? If not now, when
If not now, baby?
Fight back those tears of yesteryears
Let’s move it up, lady
Take on this life, you and me high
What are we saying?
If not now, then? If not now, when
If not now, baby?

Let’s find the end of the world
Tell the stories that need to be heard
Want to find myself out there
Can’t be lost when no one cares
Feels like I’ve seen this film before
Ending so predictable
We’re just two lovers trapped in a small town
Waiting for our big chance to break out
Let’s get out

If not now, then? If not now, when
If not now, baby?
Fight back those tears of yesteryears
Let’s move it up, lady
Take on this life, you and me high
What are we saying?
If not now, then? If not now, when
If not now, baby?

If not now, then? If not now, when
If not now, baby?
Fight back those tears of yesteryears
Let’s move it up, lady
Take on this life, you and me high
What are we saying?
If not now, then? If not now, when
If not now, baby?
