LyricsEdit

Princeton:
Why does everything have to be so hard?

Gary:
Maybe you'll never find your purpose.

Christmas Eve:
Lots of people don't.

Princeton:
But then- I don't know why I'm even alive!

Kate:
Well, who does, really? Everyone's a little bit unsatisfied.

Brian:
Everyone goes 'round a little empty inside.

Gary:
Take a breath,
Look around,

Brian:
Swallow your pride,

Kate:
For now...

Brian, Kate, Gary, Christmas Eve:
For now...

Nicky:
Nothing lasts,

Rod:
Life goes on,

Nicky:
Full of surprises.

Rod:
You'll be faced with problems of all shapes and sizes.

Christmas Eve:
You're going to have to make a few compromises...
For now...

Trekkie:
For now...

All:
But only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now!

Lucy:
For now we're healthy.

Brian:
For now we're employed.

Bad Idea Bears:
For now we're happy...

Kate:
If not overjoyed.

Princeton:
And we'll accept the things we cannot avoid, for now...

Gary:
For now...

Trekkie:
For now...

Kate:
For now...

All:
But only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now! (For now)
Only for now!

Only for now!
(For now there's life!)
Only for now!
(For now there's love!)
Only for now!
(For now there's work!)
For now there's happiness!
But only for now!
(For now discomfort!)
Only for now!
(For now there's friendship!)
Only for now (For now!)
Only for now!

Only for now! Sex!
Is only for now! Your hair!
Is only for now! George Bush!
Is only for now!

Don't stress,
Relax,
Let life roll off your backs
Except for death and paying taxes,
Everything in life is only for now!

Nicky:
Each time you smile...

All:
...Only for now

Kate:
It'll only last a while.

All:
...Only for now

Princeton:
Life may be scary...

All:
...Only for now
But it's only temporary

Ba-dum ba-dum
Ba-dum ba-dum
Ba dum ba-dum
Ba-da da da da
ba-da da-da da da-da
Ba-dum ba-da, ba-dum ba-da
ohhhh-

Princeton:
Everything in life is only for now.
