She told him she'd rather fix her makeup
Then try and fix what's going on
But the problem keeps on calling
Even with the cellphone gone

She told him that she believes in living
Bigger than she's living now
But her world keeps spinning backwards
And upside down

Don't say so long
You're not that far gone
Don't spin today away
'Cause today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone
Just try and prove me wrong
And pretend like you're immortal

She said, "He said, live like no tomorrow"
Everyday we borrow brings us
One step closer to the edge
Infinity

Where's your treasure, where's your hope
If you get the world and lose your soul?
She pretends like she pretends like
She's immortal

Don't say so long
And throw yourself wrong
This could be your big chance to makeup
Today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone
The world keeps spinning on
Your going, going

Gone, like summer break is gone
Like Saturday is gone
Just try and prove me wrong
You pretend like you're immortal, you're immortal

We are not infinite
We are not permanent
Nothing is immediate

We are so confident
In our accomplishments
Look at our decendence

Gone, like Frank Sinatra
Like Elvis and his Mom
Like Al Pacino's cash
Nothing lasts in this life

My high school dreams are gone
Like my childhood sweets are gone
Life is a day that doesn't last for long

Life is more than money
Time was never money
Time was never cash
Life is still more than girls

Life is more than hundred Dollar bills
And roto-tom fills
Life is more than fame
And rock and roll and thrills

All the riches of the kings end up in wills
We've got the information in the information age
But do we know what life is like
Outside of our convenient Lexus cages?

She said, "He said, live like no tomorrow"
Every moment that we borrow
Brings us closer to a God
Who's not short of cash

Hey Bono, I'm glad you asked
Life is still worth living
Life is still worth living
Life is more than we are
