In A Moment

Ray Davies, released on Working Man's Café (solo) © Davray Music Ltd. 2007

.

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

.

'Cos 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

.
