Davies, Ray - In A Moment Lyrics




Sunlight and the city is barely awake
As all the early morning drifters make their way
Headlights in the distance too bright for my eyes
Still I love the dusk, the dawn, between times
They are mine

'Cause you can't tell if it's day or night
Do we see the moon or the sunlight?
Everything around is so transitional
Momentary lapse of rational

Walking past the writing on the wall
Something apocalyptic
Then a momentary lapse of faith
Before I become more optimistic

Like a momentary loss of sight
Fleetingly it went so wrong from right
In a second it can change from night to day
Any second love can turn to hate

Sunlight and the city is barely awake
As all the seconds in our lifetime drift away
So live every moment and hold me so tight
A second changes day to night

I had a momentary loss of sight
Fleetingly it went so wrong from right
In a second you would change your point of view
In my hesitation I lost you

It only takes a moment sometimes
The difference between joy and pain
In a second you can look away
Turn around to find it's all changed

Because you can't tell if it's day or night
Do we see the moon or the sunlight?
Everything around is so transitional
Momentary loss of rational

Like a momentary loss of sight
Fleetingly it went from dark to light
In a second it can change from night to day
But in a moment hope will find the way

  1. Barry A Rose

    What a great song!  The best one on Working Man's cafe, and one of Ray's best since the Kinks disbanded.

  2. Duenderelojero

    Like a momentary loss of sight
    Fleetingly it went so wrong from right
    In a second it can change from night to day
    Any second love can turn to hate

  3. Eric Writes

    Steely-influenced, underscoring Ray's universal understanding, concise poetry and signature vision.
