All the things you think and say
Float away into space
Done in thought or done in haste
They have no place, they leave no trace

All the things you think and do
Have become a part of you
All your deeds have come to pass
Nothing lasts, nothing lasts

Like a river flowing past your windowpane
Life's never the same
Like the sun you're born to set
You'll die in sin
And be born once again

Now you know, so damn well
That your life is a heaven and a hell
And it's very easy to tell
When you're sick and when you're well

So the secret to this life
Is so very easy to learn
If you ever love another
Never ask for anything in return

Like a river flowing past your windowpane
Life's never the same
Like the sun you're born to set
You'll die in sin
And be born once again

All the things you think and say
Float away into space
Done in thought or done in haste
They have no place, they leave no trace

All the things you think and do
Have become a part of you
All your deeds have come to pass
Nothing lasts, nothing lasts
