Rush – The Present Tense lyrics

Living in the Present Tense
When you lose the past
And the future makes no sense
You're living in the Present Tense

Crawling out, secure and confident
Imbued with innocence
Ready for the whirl
Suddenly the view was more intense
Living in a different kind of world

You're living
Living in the present tense
There's nothing to blame
No victim of consequence
You're living in the Present Tense

Something you said
It made me
Step outside.. The moment
Eyes pan right and left
Around my world

Open yourself
Up to the possibility
Aware of some reality
Outside your world

In a silent universe
The moment can be so real
You almost can't stand it

In a distant universe
Distracted from ourselves
You can't help but wonder

In a crowded universe
When the talking turns to noise
You almost start laughing

You're living
Living in the present tense
When you lose the past
And the future makes no sense
You're Living in the Present Tense
Nothing to blame
No victim of consequence
You're living in the Present Tense
