Seize the Day

from Live

She comes to my bed like a whisper
Slips in the sheet like a ghost
Says in my ear "Hey mister,
You need to take this girl to the coast.

I need to kick my feet up in the ocean
Feel the taste of the salt sea spray
Baby let's live in the moment
For it feels like life is taking the moment away"

Seize the day, Seize the day, Seize the day

In the kitchen in the morning
She poured coffee in my favorite cup
She's been dancing on the linoleum
Bare foot the squeaking nearly woke me up

She put Tom Jones on the stereo
That I could do without
Ah, but who needs perfection
I like the tension when there's room for doubt

Seize the day, Seize the day, Seize the day
Seize the day, Seize the day, Seize the day

She brought some pens, a couple of notebooks
A postcard, a blanket, a bottle of Merlot
The sky provided the sunset
And me.I brought the music of Nat King Cole

And I'd come back as a sea-gull I said
If in the next life they give you the choice
I'd come back with you-we could go flying
She said You'd hear me raise my voice to

Seize the day, Seize the day, Seize the day
Seize the day, Seize the day, Seize the day
