A meditation on the joy and necessity of being present in the moment.


Be here now, be here now
Mama can you see me, Mama are you listening to me?
Be here now, be here now

The cellphone is beeping, the cellphone is beeping
Tell me are you present, in the moment of the minute
Be here now, be here now

Facetime is calling, facetime is calling
Tell me can you shut down, can you go outside and be found
Be here now, be here now

The sun is rising, the sun is rising
Tell me can you taste it, can you savor its golden rays
Be here now, be here now

The world is turning, the world is turning
Tell me are you living, are you alive in your own skin
Be here now, be here now
