Understanding the Lyrics: Just for Now

Do you ever come across a song (new or old) that just kind of becomes your theme song for a while?

That’s what’s going on here, for me.

Just for Now – Pentatonix

Just for now, just for now
Just for now, just for now, just for now
Just for now, just for now, just for now
Just for now, just for now, just for now

It’s that time of year
Leave all our hopelessnesses aside
If just for a little while (just for now, just for now)
Tears stop right here
I know we’ve all had a bumpy ride
I’m secretly on your side (just for now, just for now)

How did you know?
It’s what I always wanted
Can never have too many of these
Mmm yeah, quit kicking me under the table
I’m trying
Will somebody make her shut up about it
Can we settle down, please? Oh oh

It’s that time of year
Leave all our hopelessnesses aside
If just for a little while (just for now, just for now)
Tears stop right here
I know we’ve all had a bumpy ride
I’m secretly on your side (just for now, just for now)

Bite, tongue, deep breaths
Count to ten, nod your head

I think something is burning (oh, oh)
And now you’ve ruined the whole thing
Muffle the smoke alarm
Whoever put on this music
You better quick sharp remove it
Pour me another
No, don’t wag your finger at me oh oh

That time of year
Leave all our hopelessnesses aside
If just for a little while (just for now, just for now)
Tears stop right here
I know we’ve all had a bumpy ride
I’m secretly on your side (just for now, just for now)

Get me outta here, get me outta here
Get me outta here, ooh
Get me outta here, get me outta here
Get me outta here
Would you get me outta here, get me outta here
Get me outta here (la, da, di, da, di, da)
Get me outta here (just for now) get me outta here

(Just for now) get me outta here (just for now)
Just for now, just for now, just for now
Just for now, just for now, just for now

Tears stop right here. I know we've all had a bumpy ride. I'm secretly on your side.

I am.

You need someone. I can be here for you.

Are you there for anyone else, right now? Are you someone’s rock?

We’re all in this life together and we can all help each other get through or get by.
