this one deserves it's own

The Spill Canvas - The Tide

and there's three
count them 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
as she watches the waves turn white at the tip
and there's Vada
radiating with joy
like Elise she still cant stand the sight of a boy
and lastly there's Dave
his hair dances in the wind
and he's wondering what love is
and why
it has to
end

and he cant understand
how everyone goes on breathing when true love ends
his mother whispers quietly

heaven's not the 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've ever 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
and there's Veronica
she's licking her lips
as she waits for her real first passionate kiss
and there's Vada
she can't admit her jealousy
of her sister, Veronica
and how she's so pretty
and lastly theres Dave
still sitting on the dock
he ponders his life as 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 the 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've ever heard
and live for the moment [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 there's something
is that they'd never live past the age 15
due to neglect
from their mother
who was bedridden by her ex-lover
their father

and 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 the 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 is completely real
so forget everything that you've heard
and live for the moment now
