    Go is a declaration of movement. Sometimes movement is a forward motion – and sometimes movement takes a momentary pause as we wait for direction. In either case, “go” does not mean to sit still in our comfort zone and do nothing. We’re either going forward or idling in expectation of God’s direction. And when the time comes to go – then we GO!

Days of summer stretch like they go forever
Thinking every hour that passes is better
Endless ways of wasted days in no hurry
Bless you child; you ain’t got any worries

In the moment stars reached out and you grabbed them
Details missed in the thick of it,
Where you been boy?
You’ll find when you’re there at last - it’s a bad show
Pin me down and I’ll tell you just what you don’t know
Don’t you know

(chorus 1)
The clock keeps tickin’ as the days go by
(Time keeps rollin’ …time moves on)
The older you get, the faster it glides
(Time keeps rollin’ …time moves on)

(chorus 2)
Press for the moment stolen away
You can’t go back at the end of the day
The here and now is your now here to stay
(Time keeps rollin’ …time moves on) x 4

Life flows through this cynic’s veins
And I wonder
Why the foolish undertow took me under
Planing wood against the grain is laborious
And yet in life a choice exists for each one of us
What’s your choice?

(chorus 1 & 2)

In the face of a crowd, oh I loved it too much
The punch of the drum was a punch in the gut
When I measured a man by the depth of his love
I found that one man stands above

(chorus 1 & 2)

(chorus 3)
The fool and his folly, the clash of a clown
Has cashed in his past for the sake of a crown
To know where you’re goin’ is worth it all now
(Time keeps rollin’ …time moves on) x 4
