Lyrics
Once in a Moment

(Key Solo/Intro)
Hey, it’s a hard life and things happen.
Promises made long since forgotten.
It don’t have to wear it on your sleeve
If the blame and the guilt is all on me.

So give it a break and take a rest
All I’m asking is a little forgiveness
Don’t you think it’s been long enough
To take all that poison and give it all up?

I’m on my way to make amends,
Accept what it is, or send me away,
But don’t you cry for us
It’s not the end, but another beginning.

(Instrumental bridge)

(Verse1)
Just remember.
Just remember where I’ve been.
When I was you with my ticket in my hand.
I wanted to see the country, the undiscovered lands.

Out of the station I never looked back,
My dreams ahead a stop,
along the track.

(Chorus)
It’s in how you love everyone.
It’s felt in the warmth of the sun.
It’s you soft healing touch,
It’s what makes me miss you so much.

We wanted to share this destiny,
All the while I was left to dream
Protecting the bond that’s not pretend,
What would you do if I did it again?

(Verse2)
Just remember
Just remember where we’ve been.

It’s a wild ride into the future,
As the years go by the scenery changes
Lots of tunnels and little exchanges,
The direction is certain and you can’t go back,
it’s a one way trip.

(Chorus)
It’s in how you love everyone.
It’s felt in the warmth of the sun.
It’s you soft healing touch,
It’s what makes me miss you so much.

We wanted to share this destiny,
All the while I was left to dream
Protecting the bond that’s not pretend,
What would you do if I did it again?

(Verse3)
What do we fear when the end draws near?
Losing the people along for the ride.
The opposite shore, the other side.

Who else is headed this way,
Who do I consider close for today
Hopefully waiting when we arrive.

(Outro)
The train keeps barreling along
Suddenly I realize I’m all alone.

As I leave that last bend behind
It gets lost in the passage of time
I don’t know where this ticket is to,
the conductor doesn’t know what I should do
Who do I call, hey wait a minute?

Good posts
Your songs (the first three posted here on Macjams) assuredly cast a mood. You can tell you love making music!

I love how you include ambient sounds in your soundtracks .. which obviously add to the overall affectation.

A train trip as a life metaphor .. that always works in a song. (And I'm saying that not just because the last song I posted was a train song.)

Anyway .. glad to have you aboard!
Check out my latest song called Brand New Day

Very interesting song
The intro felt disconnected and perhaps that was meant but in the end the overall song was impressive. Nicely done!
