Live for today. Each day’s an open door

I instantly fell in love with this song the first time I listened to Marbles. I like Marillion a lot. And I like (almost) all their songs. But there are a few which are beyond that…I just love them.
One of these is Don’t Hurt Yourself . This song has a great message. I don’t even have to say anything more, cause the lyrics speak for themselves. Please listen to this song…and for that matter, to the whole album 😉

So, song of the day – Don’t Hurt Yourself. Along with the lyrics, cause they are pretty great.

There’ll come a time when all of this is over
Something else will grow and take it’s place
The brand new car: scrap metal in a junkyard
The children playing will grow up and leave home
Put it away this dream you can’t stop dreaming
Put it away this anger and desire
The open road is infinitely hopeful
Take all those memories and throw them in the fire

And don’t hurt yourself
Don’t hurt yourself
Don’t hurt yourself anymore

There’s old man on a warm and sunny island
No job, no money, just a smile to call his own
Know what he says?
“The past will only haunt you.
Live for today. Each day’s an open door

Don’t hurt yourself
Don’t hurt yourself
Don’t hurt yourself anymore”

Nothing to lose is nothing to fight over
The shining stars!
They’ve seen it all before.

Don’t hurt yourself
Don’t hurt yourself
Don’t hurt yourself anymore

Dust keeps coming. Rust keeps coming. Weeds keep growing. Seeds keep growing
Where you going?
