Why Not Now?

Sitting on the lawn with the suns rays upon us
Thinking about the future with the present in view
Vibes intertwine as my eyes gaze into yours
Eyes as bright as gold on this green afternoon

I said come on girl, are you ready?
The time is just as good as any
So why not now before the leaves turn brown and the temperature cold?
Why not now while we’re young and alive before we grow old?

Sitting on the couch, staring at the clock
With the moon’s radiance upon my pen and paper
Staring at the clock it strikes midnight as I begin to ponder
The confrontation to occur only hours from now

I said come on girl, are you ready?
Just like yesterday the time is just as good as any
So why not now before the tests come and go and course load thickens?
Why not now while we both have a handle on ourselves?
Ourselves

You seem like the kind of girl I can take a risk on
You’ve got that urban nationality and damn good personality

I said come on girl, are you ready?
The time is just as good as any
I said come on girl (come on girl, come on girl)
I said come on girl (come on girl, come on girl)

So why not now before the leaves turn brown and the temperature cold?
Why not now while we’re young and alive before we grow old?
Why not now while we still have each other to hold?
Why not now while we both have a handle on ourselves?
Ourselves
