"VAPOR"

Verse 1
The clock of life is wound just once & no one knows
The day or hour the hands will stop; that's the way life goes.
Each one of us is here with a mission to fulfill
Put here by God; we are to love & do His Will.
But put no faith in time my friend, for your clock may soon be still.

Verse 2
I've seen the way some greet the day indifferently,
And then death came to call their name so unexpectedly,
A life can bloom, wither, & fade, a fragile blade of grass.
You live, you die, you blink an eye, & your present's in your past;
And will what's left behind be built to last?

Chorus
Vapor-we're here for today.
Vapor-we vanish away.
All that remains from this life that we live,
All that we gain is the love that we give.

Verse 3
So what you find to do, do with all the grace & skill you know,
Because we're here just once to give our all before it's time to go.
Upon life's sea we sail; one day our ships will wash ashore.
A new world where death & pain can't touch us any more.
But will your best be done for the One you love & adore
On the fateful day when death knocks at your door?

Chorus
Vapor-we're here for today.
Vapor-we vanish away.
All that remains from this life that we live,
All that we gain is the love that we give.

Repeat Chorus twice
