All We Have Is Now
The Flaming Lips Lyrics


As logic stands you couldn't meet a man
Who's from the future
But logic broke as he appeared he spoke
About the Future
"We're not gonna make it" He explained how
The end will come, you and me were never meant
To be part of the future,
All we have is now,
All we've ever had was now
All we have is now
All we'll ever have is now

I noticed that he had a watch and hat
That looked familiar
He was me, from a dimension torn free
Of the future
"We're not gonna make it" He explained how
The end will come, you and me were never meant
To be part of the future,
All we have is now,
All we've ever had was now
All we have is now
All we'll ever have is now

All we have is now

This song is so sad and tender. It always makes me tear up a little bit. I think it's because I'm a lover of science fiction, but it really captures the melancholy that would occur if you somehow found out that this wondrous sci-fi future was going to happen (time travel, etc.), but that you yourself wouldn't be able to make it there. On the surface it's about living in the moment, but there's a well of sorrow at the bottom of it. Sort of like "Do You Realize" I guess.

It still isnt afraid to show the real message, enjoying what you have now before it is too late

It definitely encapsulates the emotion and the eerieness of this concept with the instrumentation.

"You and me were never meant to be part of the future"



That line will always resonate so hard with me

I cry every time I listen to this song. Because, in my heart, I realise the truth of it.
