The Story of Now
Rusty Reid Holster
Copyright © Rio Paso Music (BMI)

Let me tell you a tale... about the most wondrous story of all.

Wander through the saga of the world
All the way back to when time began
Eons play with clouds of starry whirls
Long before the age of man.
Then appeared an orb of blue and white
Nestled in the family of Ra
Baby Earth and Luna shining bright
A masterpiece of nature's laws.

Let me tell you a tale
It's the story of why
It's the story of space and time
It's the story of life.
It's the story of Earth
It's the story of how
It's the story of you and me

In her water womb our Mother Earth
Synthesized the first stir of life
Three thousand million years before the birth
Of any higher archetype.
So unfurled the chain of all our kin
From moss and trees and fish and frogs and birds
Every Earthling clad in nature's skin
Our common genes a tangled blur.


Shimmering across a lost horizon
A little band came down from the trees
Out on to the plains under the bright sun
And eventually beyond the sea.

The human story soars romantically
Intrepid souls determined to survive.
So too we fall in sin so selfishly
Thwarting our best chance to thrive.
The Universe does not give guarantees
Just a shot at finding happiness
Now we should know the secret and the key
Love should be the north star to our quest.
