If I never get the love that I’ve been dreaming of
If I never get the hugs that I desire
If my knight in shining armour never comes along
And the only arms to hold me are my own

I’ll be alright, I will survive
Long as I have the presence of mind
To cherish the moment, the moment

If the other level that I have been working for
Turns out to be the time and place where I am now
If the mystery to all my dreams and happiness
Is smoke and mirrors and my state of mind

I’ll be alright, I will survive
Long as I have the presence of mind
To cherish the moment, the moment

Moment to Moment, that’s how we live
Whether we rush or enjoy it
Whether we blame or forgive

Whether we count our blessings
Or curse every second
That we live


If there’re no happy endings to my childhood fantasies
No hefty pot of gold beneath the colored sky
No calvary to rush with weapons drawn to rescue me
And the only way to get to heaven is to die

I’ll be alright, I will survive
Long as I have the presence of mind
To cherish the moment, the moment
Long as I have the presence of mind
To cherish the moment
