Song Lyrics

Alright, um…
This man’s got a very, uh, a very loud voice here
I think, um…I guess he’s been even seized by the, uh…the moment here
But it’s an active counter-version
And then maybe uniquely segue into Moment of Surrender

I know a girl, a girl called Party
I know she wants more than a party
But she won’t tell me her name
Oh no, not me

Feel the thunder
Beautiful, beautiful evening, beautiful moon
Take out your phones, turn the lights off Willie and keep ‘em off
Turn this place into the Milky Way
(Christmas charm…Christmas walkabout)

Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh…

I tied myself with wire
To let the horses run free
I was playing with the fire
When the fire played with me
Ah…

Stone was barely precious
We were barely conscious
Two souls too cool to be
In the realm of certainty
Even on our wedding day

At the moment of surrender
I folded to my knees
I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me

I’ve been in every black hole
At the altar of a dark star
My body’s now a begging bowl
That’s begging to get back
Begging to get back to my heart

To the rhythm of my soul
To the rhythm of my unconsciousness
To the rhythm that yearns
To be released from control

I was punching in the numbers
At the ATM machine
I could see in the reflection
A face staring back at me

At the moment of surrender
Of vision over visibility
I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me, oh

I was speeding on the subway
Through the stations of the cross
Every eye looking every other way
Counting down till the pain would stop
At the moment of surrender
Of vision over visibility
I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh…

Life is short but it’s the longest thing you’ll ever do
The worst, the curse was your dreams came true
God is a mirror in which each man sees himself
Hell is a place where you don’t need any help
When I first met you, your face was like snow
Wherever I went to you wanted to go
Your face, your grace, your can of mace, in a case
17 when you’re put down on the ground
Don’t leave your faith in a clown
Don’t leave me now
Don’t leave faith in a clown
Put your faith in a clown
Don’t put your faith…clown

Let’s try and not make it 12 years the next time we hook up
