Love's Lost and Found

Life is too short, even if you know you're going to live forever.

1.
           Abm     Gm     Eb
There's no time to say "I love you."
         Gm
Wouldn't be in ten thousand years!
          Abm      Gm        Eb
There are too many thoughts, feelings, and dreams,
       Db
And so quick! before time disappears....
2.
          Abm        Gm        Eb
There's a time and a place for ev'rything,
       Gm
And in all of our time to be,
    Abm           Gm     Eb
The place doesn't really matter as long
   Db
As space contains you and me.
3.
          Abm        Gm      Eb
And we're both gonna live forever,
      Gm
And eventually know what's true.
            Abm     Gm      Eb
But through all of eternity-infinite,
           Abm     Gm           Eb
There's no time to say, "I love you."

           Abm     Gm           Eb

Every place we live seems so threatened by the forces of nature! Let's move someplace safe...

1.

We lived on the mountain

But the mountain exploded

We lived on the plains

But the house blew away



We lived by the ocean

Got caught in a hurricane

So we moved to the

South Pole one day

2.

Mountains and plains

And oceans are dangerous

One two three

Moved to the fourth



Now we are happy

Dancing with the penguins

Where everything everywhere

   Everywhere else

Everything everywhere

   is North!

3.

We lived on the mountain

But the mountain exploded

We lived on the plains

But the house blew away



We lived by the ocean

Got caught in a hurricane

So we moved to the

South Pole one day

4.

Mountains and plains

And oceans are dangerous

Quit looking

Down in the mouth



You can be happy

Dancing with the penguins

We're easy to visit

   Oh won't you come and visit?

All you gotta do is

    head South!
