Mission, The - Swan Song Lyrics

At the crossing of the border between the night and day
Where the lost and lonely find their twilight sway
And the curse of their existence is the loneliness they feel
Where waking up with a stranger's the only thing from them that's real
So don't sing me your swan song, baby
There's life left in this ol' dog yet
It ain't over till it's over until the fat lady sings
It ain't over till it's over until the swan spreads
Her wings
And flies away

When you see the ache of lovers as they fumble
In the night
And you feel the wrench inside you as any ex lover might
You can say your time is over for love and all the heat
But a single stranger's kiss can always turn
The bitter into sweet
So don't sing me your swan song, baby
There's still gas left in this tank
It ain't over till it's over until the fat lady sings
It ain't over till it's over until the swan spreads
Her wings
And flies away

You're wonderful
You're beautiful
Just give me your hands

    It took me ages for some reason.

    But suddenly this track clicked when I saw it live.
    Out of nowhere it hit me somewhere deep inside.
    And I now love it, it's so laden with emotion, it moves me so much every time I hear it.
    The lyrics. The vocals. The guitar work. The intentional emptiness of the drums, the subtle bass. The arrangement.
    All just *perfect*.
    Wow, are these guys underrated. What talent they have both individually, and more so, together. They possess something very special.

    I feel so privileged to think for myself, to not be a mainstreamer, not comply with the musical tastes of the masses, and get to hear, appreciate and love compositions and performances of this beauty and calibre. To know there are people in the world who can express through their music what I am merely lucky enough to feel.

    May you continue writing and performing music of this quality as long as possible for your enjoyment and ours. Sheer class.

    And for the joy you have brought, and the feelings you have brought out, in myself and no doubt so many others:
    Thank you, gentlemen.
