Lyrics
I live for you, so many hours I’d wait for you
And I cried for you, there’s nothing more that I can do
Sooner or later it passes bye, you could only hope you gave a good try
But I need to know which direction that I should go
In all those instances when it seems
As though reality fits the dream

And oh, the best that can be done is take it as it comes

I’ll wait for you, though many times I will play the fool
What can I do, hold on for another day or two?
Sooner or later it wears you down, with not a single bit of hope around
It’s hard to believe that you’re above someone who can deceive
Sooner or I’ll have to make the tough decision to give or take

But, oh it is so cold
When you are all alone and you are growing old
And you ain’t got nothin’ but your naked soul
And oh, stick to your guns and take it as it comes

Take it as it comes, don’t you worry things will even ut over time
The world could seem so scary but you’ve got to keep alert for the signs
Take it as it comes, don’t be frightened, I promise it will be alright
Life isn’t always a bowl of cherries
But if you make the most of it, everything will be alright

Sooner or later dreams come true, I tell you that it’s really up to you

But, oh it is so cold
When you are all alone and you are growing old
And you ain’t got nothin’ but your naked soul
And oh, stick to your guns and take it as it comes

Analysis: The final song in the collection brings back a little warmth with the acoustic guitar, but otherwise is all electronic and sequenced like most of the 1995 songs. It was original written as a lead-off song, but works just as well as a closer.
