The One Moment

Album: Hungry Ghosts (2014)
  • You're right
    There is nothing more lovely
    There's nothing more profound
    Than the certainty
    Than the certainty

    That all of this will end
    That all of this will end

    So open your arms to me
    Open your arms to me

    And this will be
    The one moment that matters
    And this will be
    The one thing we remember
    And this will be
    The reason to have been here
    And this will be
    The one moment that matters at all

    So while the mud
    Reclaims our footprints
    And while our bones keep looking back
    The overgrowth is swallowing the path
    There for the grace of god go we
    There for the grace of god go we
    There for the grace of time and chance
    and entropy's cruel hands

    So open your arms to me
    Open your arms to me

    And this will be
    The one moment that matters
    And this will be
    The one thing we remember
    And this will be
    The reason to have been here
    And this will be
    The one moment that matters at all

    So won't you stay here with me
    And we'll build until we've blistered our hands
    So won't you stay here with me
    We'll build us some temples
    We'll build us some castles
    We'll build us some monuments
    And burn them all right down

    So open your arms to me
    Open your arms to me

    And this will be
    The one moment that matters
    And this will be
    The one thing we remember
    And this will be
    The reason to have been here
    And this will be
    The one moment that matters at all

    (Overlapping)
    So won't you stay here with me
    And we'll build until we've blistered our hands

    (Overlapping)
    This will be
    The one thing we remember

    (Overlapping)
    So won't you stay here with me
    And we'll build us some temples
    Build us some castles
    Build us some monuments
    We'll build us some temples
    Build us some castles
    Build us some monuments

    This will be
    This will be
    The one moment that matters
    And this will be

    The one moment that matters at all Writer/s: DAMIAN KULASH, TIMOTHY NORDWIND
