No Dress Rehearsal

(Stephen Fearing 2007 – Copyright Mummy Dust Music/Fearing and Loathing Music)

Wake
Out of a dream
To the howl of the wind rising
Better take the dog with me

See
What do you see
Count the ways the world looks different
And somebody said…

Time doesn’t know reversal
Life ain’t no dress rehearsal
Courage makes it own rewards
Try and act accordingly
Life is the motivator
Time will be over later
Waste your breath on wait and see

I tried
And what did I find
That the hands behind the curtain of The Mighty Oz
Were mine

Walk
Won’t you walk with me
To the place where we can talk about it
Wouldn’t you agree

Time doesn’t know reversal
Life ain’t no dress rehearsal
Courage makes it own rewards
Try and act accordingly
Life is the motivator
Time will be over later
Waste your breath on wait and see
Don’t waste your breath on wait and see

“Life ain’t no dress rehearsal”
– Mark Twain
