Notes
AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT

Verse:

As the poet said:
How do I love you?
Let me count the ways.
But I'd like to rephrase
   the question and start again.
Not with how do I love you,
But when?

Chorus:

At any given moment
Of any given hour
Of any given day
You are somewhere in my mind.

At any given drop of sand in the hourglass,
At any given tick of the clock,
At any given shift in the sun's position
I get that shock
Of recognition.
It's you again!
Come to remind me
Of all our times together since we met
Not that I could ever forget.

At every given moment
Of every given hour
Of every given season
Of the year
You appear.
