Why Not?

why not enjoy it while it lasts
this truth that’s come to pass
nothing flourishes forever

love you or not, maybe I need you
why not, maybe you’ll want me to stay
why test it, why pick at it

there will never be another night
quite as cool or quite as calm
quiet enough to let dawn sneak in

above two souls quite like ours
love me or not, we’re here, and needy
we can break promises safely

as if it weren’t by chance you found me
as if it weren’t by fate that I prayed for you
