This Moment

(unreleased)
 
This Moment
words and music by Mark Herring
 
I didn’t expect to get the news today
Even though it’s no surprise, it shakes me anyway
And good intentions haunt my mind
Cause I put off till tomorrow, what I should have told you yesterday
 
I don’t want to miss this moment here with you
I wanna say the things I need to say, and do the things I need to do
It’s like a snapshot of a second, and then it’s through
I don’t want to miss this moment here with you
 
It’s like a sunset that fades
A prayer that softly ends, a touch that doesn’t stay
It’s come and gone before I know
Cause I was too distracted, by what doesn’t matter anyway
 
And I don’t want to miss this moment here with you
I wanna say the things I need to say, and do the things I need to do
It’s like a snapshot of a second, and then it’s through, yea
I don’t want to miss this moment here with you
 
I won’t close my eyes, so I don’t miss it
Gonna take in everything I can
I won’t take one single thing for granted
Cause we may never be here again
 
And I don’t want to miss this moment here with you
I’m gonna say the things I need to say, and do the things I need to do
It’s like a snapshot of a second, and then it’s through, yea
And I don’t want to miss this moment here
I don’t want to miss this moment
I don’t want to miss this moment here with you
 
This moment here with you
