Thomas sanders while the moments good lyrics



[Thomas:]
While the moment's good you take what you can
Because the moment might not be so good for long
So you've got a tree
It might just be a tree
But if you only see a tree then you've got it wrong
You could be showing us who's not afraid
Or nestle underneath it's shade
And maybe it's not perfect but it's here

So take a chance
The coast is clear

When it's ripe you've got to grab the fruit
Get it while you can
And the rest will follow suit
Maybe it's not paradise
But for the price you're getting
Its a deal you knocked up
Knock on wood
You've got to grab the moment while the moments good

[Emma:]
I don't think while the moments good is a thing, also I think you might be mixing your metaphors

[Thomas:]
I think you might be mixing me up with someone else because my metaphors are awesome

[Emma:]
But the tree is the fruit?

[Thomas:]
No the moment is the fruit, the tree is the moment, is the fruit
Not important the point is, well for example

Think about the bark
You climb the bark while you embark so the bark therefore is sort of like the sea

[Preston:]
Yeah I hear it

Take the shade
The shade can be an aide for you when you want to unwind here on your own

[Thomas:]
It's like an eagle, an eagle who so regally takes you underneath it's wing and

[Emma:]
I'm gonna stop you right there

[Thomas:]
Yeah that was bad

[Emma:]
Look I appreciate the sentiment but this tree is not interesting to me
I get it, it's some kind of magical palace for your birdwatching

[Preston:]
Birds can't afford palaces now who's not making any sense

[Emma:]
Not the point

[Thomas:]
No the point is

It might be hard to understand
It might be slightly a little less grander than all the things you dreamed that you would do
But it's just today
Embrace what's here in front of you
Getting there on the first try can be hard

[Preston and Emma:]
Stealing back and look for something right there in your yard
Take it in discrete steps
Pace yourself with easy street steps

[Emma:]
Let yourself be less than you think you should

[Thomas:]
Nope not what I meant

You got to take the moment while the moments good

[Preston:]
I just want to watch the birds go by
Sitting underneath this giant Douglas fir

[Emma:]
Warrior girl sets out on her expedition
Warrior girl climbs the tallest oak

[Emma and Preston:]
Or whatever it is

[Emma:]
She looks over roof tops from her high altitude position and she floats in the wind

[Preston:]
I want to watch them fly and fly so long as I can get away from her

[Emma:]
Wait what did you just say?

[Thomas:]
If I could get a word in
Then I would say
That there's a way that both of you could find a common ground
While the moments good
You can take this opportunity, to talk it out
So maybe you'll both come around

[Preston:]
Sorry for that thing I said

[Emma:]
It's ok let's hang out by this tree

[Emma and Preston:]
Just you and me and then this other guy

[Thomas:]
I'm so glad that I could help
Three, four

[Emma and Preston:]
It might be just a lonely stage right elm

[Emma:]
Or whatever it is

[Preston:]
But it could be a quiet spot to read

[Emma:]
Or something less silly like the helm of a pirate ship or a bridge that sits right up into the sky

[Preston:]
That sits right up into the sky

[Emma and Preston:]
It's a small dream but it could be just as good
You got to grab the moment while the moments good [x3]
