And there's three, count 'em three
Children playing on the beach
They were eager to learn
To be taught and to teach

There's Veronica, she's biting her lip
She watches the waves turn white at the tip
There's Vada radiating with joy
And luckily she still can't stand the sight of a boy

And lastly there's Dade his hair dances in the wind
And he's wondering what love is and why it has to end
And he can't understand
How everyone goes on breathing when true love ends

His mother whispers quietly
Heaven's not a place that you go when you die
It's that moment in life when you actually feel alive

So live for the moment
And take this advice, live by every word
Love is just a hoax so forget anything that you have heard
And live for the moment now

And there's three, count 'em three
Children growing on the beach
They were eager to learn,
To be taught and to teach

There's Veronica she's licking her lips
As she waits for her real, first passionate kiss
And there's Vada can't admit her jealousy
Of her sister Veronica, and how she's so pretty
And how she's so pretty

Lastly there's Dade still sitting on the dock
Ponders his life, and he skips his rocks
And he wonders when his father will return
But he's not coming back and he can't understand
How everyone goes on breathing when true love ends

His mother whispers quietly
Heaven's not a place that you go when you die
It's that moment in life when you actually feel alive

So live for the moment
And take this advice, live by every word
Love is just a hoax
So forget everything that you have heard, forget everything

And there's three, count 'em three
Children missing from the beach
They were eager to learn
To be taught and to teach

But the sad thing
Is that they never lived passed the age of fifteen
Due to neglect from their mother
Who was bed ridden by her ex-lover, their father

She didn't even notice, or pay much attention
As the tide came in and swept her three into the ocean
Now all her advice, it seems useless

No, heaven's not a place that you go when you die
It's that moment in life
When you touch her and you feel alive

So live for the moment
And take this advice, live by every word
Love's completely real, so forget anything that you've heard
Live for the moment now
