here and now lyrics – garden variety

—————
today i found a nickel
and i held it in my hand
i wished it lots of luck as i
gave it to the homeless man
he said god bless you
i said god bless us both
he smiled and started laughing
i guess i told a joke
here and now
ready and willing
touch my heart it is open
kiss my soul if you’re willing
i am ready to be living
here and now
today i had a notion i had
to call up my old friend
she said she had a
poem for me
and did i hear that
she was thinking of leaving
i said i will miss you
and then
i played her my new song
we laughed and cried
we never said goodbye
and when i called again
she was gone
here and now
ready and willing
touch my heart it is open
kiss my soul if you’re willing
i am ready to be living
here and now
today i made a dollar and
i’m feeling very rich
i earned it with my labor
yes i dug my ditch
i’m free from all my worries
and i cast away my doubts
i am living in this moment
and tomorrow’s gonna
work itself out
here and now
ready and willing
touch my heart it is open
kiss my soul if you’re willing
i am ready to be living
here and now
