Avenue Q: For Now

Why does everything have to be so hard?
Maybe you’ll never find your purpose.
Lots of people don’t.
But then- I don’t know why I’m even alive!
Well, who does, really?
Everyone’s a little bit unsatisfied.
Everyone goes ’round a little empty inside.
Take a breath,
Look around,
Swallow your pride,
For now…

Nothing lasts,
Life goes on,
Full of surprises.
You’ll be faced with problems of all shapes and sizes.
You’re going to have to make a few compromises…
For now…

But only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now!

For now we’re healthy.
For now we’re employed.
For now we’re happy…
If not overjoyed.
And we’ll accept the things we cannot avoid, for now…
For now…

Only for now!
(For now there’s life!)
Only for now!
(For now there’s love!)
Only for now!
(For now there’s work!)
For now there’s happiness!
But only for now!
(For now discomfort!)
Only for now!
(For now there’s friendship!)
Only for now (For now!)
Only for now!

Only for now! (Sex!)
Is only for now! (Your hair!)
Is only for now! (George Bush!)
Is only for now!

Each time you smile…
…Only for now

It’ll only last a while.
…Only for now

Life may be scary…Only for now
But it’s only temporary

Everything in life is only for now.
