I just don't believe in this world full of sorrow
To suffer for something that's better tomorrow
Counting our sins on the path of forgiveness
Hoping we're heard by a merciful witness
We race around looking for brilliance in the world
In the darkness we cry out for light in the world
And the last place we're looking for love in the world
Is right here, right now

See what I have been, I condemn it to laughter
Leave to the sages my status hereafter
If anybody says I exist in denial
So be it, we'll see when we all are on trial
I'm bidding farewell to the ritual chores
Condemning ourselves or counting old scores
I'm opening windows and kicking down doors
Breathing fresh air into orifices and pores
Right here, right now

Two lovers together out walking the road
Two hearts complementing, but feeling the load
Scarred by the wounds of the passions we've known
Something to share, uncertain we've grown
The turf is all gone and the fire is dim
Another day certain that love cannot win
Finally calling on powers within
Right here, right now

We go down to where we hold each other
Precious moment, simply lovers now
Right here, right now

I just don't believe in this world full of sorrow
