A day like today is for you
To let your mind unwind like you ought to
Feel the earth turn 'round when your heart rate slows
Contemplating the thing only your heart knows that life's not a race

So hard to believe part of me will fade
In the mystery in a future world, long ago
Part feels for your love
And lives to tell you so

The world whirls around your mind in a golden spiral
The natural way that things organize
You can't stop entropy so why even try?
Observe the conscious flow and don't mystify, life's not a race

So hard to believe part of me will fade
In the mystery in a future world, long ago
Part feels for your love
And lives to tell you so

Slippin' into a trance, a chance encounter in the autumn
What do I see an opportunity and then, I got 'em
Sought a chill-out mix to carve some space
To make you wanna listen it's a bubblin' spring and
Double in kings of this sound system

So hard to believe part of me will fade
In the mystery in a future world, long ago
Part feels for your love
And lives to tell you so

Do you see world without end, the rising sun my friend?
Imagine cloud like you will form again
In the spacey boredom, in the autumn of late afternoon
You are calm just like a sleepy room

DOUGLAS V MARTINEZ, NICHOLAS L HEXUM
