A decade has disappeared - I get confused
A century has changed - I get confused
The new millennium born - I get confused
The sense of time - I get confused
The time reaches my hand
makes cut marks to the life line
I died, then I was born
The presence of the past - felt close
This moment called now - the only time
What happens in and around us
in all these overwhelming emotions
The changes forced and chosen - I get confused
Old homes gone cold - I get confused
Lives without and with children - I get confused
Lives to have and to hold - I get confused
Let´s have this moment and stay one second in forever
I get confused
