The Lyrics:

LET’S LIVE THE FUTURE!

I GO SAD IF I DON’T SEE YOU

WHEN I WAKE UP IN THE MORNING.

MY BEDROOM LOOKS KIND OF EMPTY,

AND THE WALLS VERY NAKED.

WHAT CLOTHES TO WEAR FOR THE DAY…

I REALLY DO NOT GIVE A DAMN!

I GUESS ANYTHING WOULD DO

WITHOUT YOU WALKING BY MY SIDE.

CHORUS

I SEE COUPLES WALKING HAND IN HAND,

I SEE THEM SITTING SIDE BY SIDE,

I HEAR THEM WHISPERING WORDS OF LOVE

AND I LONG TO DO THE SAME.

WELL, YOU HESITATE TO CHANGE

ANY CURVES IN YOUR LIFE-LINE,

BELIEVING IT WOULDN’T BE PROPER

FOR YOUR GROWING YOUNG SON.

THAT’S ONE THING HARD TO UNDERSTAND

I COULD BE AN ELDER BROTHER,

A FATHER, AND LATER, A GRANDPA

AS WE ALL GROW OLDER THROUGH THE YEARS.

CHORUS

I SEE COUPLES WALKING HAND IN HAND,

I SEE THEM SITTING SIDE BY SIDE,

I HEAR THEM WHISPERING WORDS OF LOVE

AND I LONG TO DO THE SAME.

YOU SAY YOU DO CARE FOR ME,

BUT SO AFRAID TO PLAN THE FUTURE.

“ENJOY THE PRESENT!” YOU SAY,

BUT I SAY, “LET’S LIVE THE FUTURE!”

I’D LIKE TO SHARE MY HOME WITH YOU

I’D LIKE TO MAKE IT YOUR OWN, TOO.

THE HOUSE DOOR IS WIDE OPEN…

SO WALK IN, COME ON, WALK IN…

COME ON, WALK IN… COME ON, WALK IN…

LET’S LIVE THE FUTURE!
