Advent Reflection VII: Pay Attention

Are we almost there?
How much longer till I'm safe in bed at home?
How much money do I owe for what I own?
How much left to pay?

Pay attention
Pay attention
This is it, more or less
Who would ever guess
This is the best of times
This is the worst of times
And it's passing
Pay attention.

Is it over yet?
How much longer does the hidden road go on?
How much farther till I cross the Rubicon?
How much toll to pay? (Chorus)

This isn't where I thought I'd be --
I ignored my own design.
But if you're here, if you're with me
I like it fine, I like it fine...

Someone tells a joke
Someone marries, someone else is giving birth
Someone's praying, someone's buried in the earth
All of us will pay -- (Chorus)
