lyrics

How long is now? (blink and you'll miss it)
How deep is here (deep as an ocean)
How far is there (who can imagine?)
How close is now (in the palm of your hand now)

How long is now? (think and you'll miss it)
How near is here (right in your pocket)
How safe is forever (fasten your seatbelt)
How wide is how (don't overthink it)

What time is there (are sands always falling?)
What cost the fare (can't afford not to)
Openings everywhere (boundaries so boring)
Come on let's play fair (infinite games here)

How long is now?

How high the tides (seen from a distance)
How grand the finds (right under our noses)
How far that land (countries undiscovered)
How small these strides (10,000 more waiting)

How long is now? (pundits will differ)
How big is here (open those arms wide)
How close to when (so close you can taste it)
Can't wait till then (reframe your intentions)

What to keep (when everything's been said)
When to sleep (don't miss this sunrise)
What to sing (how can you find words?)
When deep's too deep (follow your heart now)

One. Moment. Please.

7 billion hows
7 billion nows
7 billion kinds
7 billion minds
7 billion asks
7 billion tasks

Big questions emerging
Big opportunities unfolding
Big challenges looming
Can't. Just. Hope.

It's so damn big
Here's us so small
Come take my hand
We'll hold it all

How long...is...now?

How long is now? (blink and you'll miss it)
How long is now? (think and you'll miss it)
How long is now? (keep asking the question)
