About Precious Stone

Of all the gold or valuable gemstones, not one thing on earth is more precious to me than this temporary, fragile state of existance we call life. Always moving toward the end, it seems to be important to treasure every day, every moment as if it were the last. Yet, the pleasure of these moments can be maximized. "Row your boat merrily, for life is but a dream". And so we should be merry and enjoy the precious stone that we already possess.

—Joe Young

Precious Stone

Get off the floor. Respect yourself.
It's bound to get crazy.
Try a little more and who can tell.
The act is amazing.
But every second
we lose another frame.

Talk about love. Control yourself.
You ain't no daisy.
Polish it up. Present the stone
through which you'll be gazing.
And every every moment
more shadows come to stay.

Every thing you've seen,
Every place you've been
Is calling for you,
Calling for you
Maybe something's wrong.
It doesn't last too long. And
they're calling for you,
calling for you

Think about life. That precious stone.
A possible daydream.
Turn around once in time again
to dance with the May Queen.
And every every minute
the dream just slips away.

Every thing you've seen,
Every place you've been
Is calling for you,
Calling for you
Maybe something's wrong.
It doesn't last too long. And
they're calling for you,
calling for you

Think about life. That precious stone.
A possible daydream.
Turn around once in time again
to dance with the May Queen.
And every every minute
the dream just slips away.
