Lyrics

How Long, come on, why not?.

So if now
is not the right time
then tell me why
if we must wait
just let me know
tell me how long.

Trust takes time
somethings have to grow
for a piece of mind
I've just got to know
tell me how long.

And when the time comes
to commit your heart
to do the work of the spirit
here on earth
to do the work of one family
each and every one of us
to bring our children

into the new age.

Up town
downtown
and in between
we're really quite alike
if you know what I mean
I could be you
you could be me ....

I had a dream that
the time was now
and I saw your face,
you were calling to me saying
come on.

And I was crying
and trembling
and laughing as such
and you were smiling and laughing
I felt your touch
calling me saying
come on.

And when the time comes
to commit your heart
to do the work of the spirit
here on earth
to do the work of one family
each and every one of us
to bring our children

into the new age.

In that dream
I was awake
as spirit flying
through my own heart
saying why not?

Calling out
in a silent voice
a movement of thought,
a moment of choice
saying why not?
