She told him she'd rather fix her makeup
Then try and fix what's going on
But the problem keeps on calling
Even with the cellphone gone

She told him that she believes in living
Bigger than she's living now
But her world keeps spinning backwards
And upside down

Don't say so long, and throw the cell phone
Don't spin today away, 'cause today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone
Just try to prove me wrong and
Pretend like you're immortal

She said, he said, live like no tomorrow
Everyday we borrow brings us
One step closer to the edge. Infinity
Where's your treasure, where's your hope
If you get the world and lose your soul?
She pretends like she pretends like
She's immortal

Don't say so long, your'e not that far gone
This could be your big chance to makeup
Today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone
The world keeps spinning on
Your going, going
Gone, like summer break is gone,
Like Saturday is gone
Just try and prove me wrong and
Pretend like your immortal

We are not infinate
We are not permanent
Nothing is immediate
We're so confident in our accomplishments
Look at our decendance

Gone, like Frank Sinatra, like Elvis and his mom
Like Al Pacino's cash, nothing lasts in this life
My high school dreams are gone,
My childhood sweets are gone,
Life is a day that doesn't last for long

Life is more than money, time was never money
Time was never cash, life is still more than girls
Life is more than hundred dollar bills and roto-tom fills
Life is more than fame and rock and roll and thrills
All the riches of the kings end up in wills
We've got information in the information age
But do we know what life is like outside of our convenient
Lexus cages?

She said he said live like no tomorrow
Every moment that we borrow brings us closer
To the God who's not short of cash
Hey Bono, I'm glad you asked
Life is still worth living,
Life is still worth living,
Life is more than you are
