Caught in a Moment

rebel

Eight Note

Verse One

My friends said it wouldn’t last,
I was living in the past,
They all said it wouldn’t work,
Cos you were such a jerk.
They all told me I should leave,
But I had reason to believe,
I could turn this boat around,
Even though we’d run aground.

Pre-Chorus

I was stubborn and naïve,
Should I stay or should I leave?
It got harder every day,
My feet were made of clay.
I was blinded by the light,
Thought that I could make things right,
Thought that I could make things work,
But I was such a jerk.

Chorus

It’s impossible to tell you how I’m feeling,
When I feel this way, when I feel this way.
It’s impossible to tell you how I’m feeling,
When I feel this way, when I feel this way.

Verse Two

When you listen to your heart,
It can tear your soul apart,
It will tell you pretty lies,
The seeds of your demise.
Things are seldom what they seem,
Words are seldom what they mean,
We were dying by degrees,
Without hope you can’t believe.

Pre-Chorus

You just turned and walked away,
There was nothing I could say,
I was stubborn and naïve,
Without faith you can’t believe.
When the walls come crashing down,
When you’ve lost what you had found,
It get’s harder, it gets harder,
every day

Chorus

It’s impossible to tell you how I’m feeling,
When I feel this way, when I feel this way.
It’s impossible to tell you how I’m feeling,
When I feel this way, when I feel this way.

Bridge

You get caught in a moment,
Where you can’t get out but you can’t stay in,
You get caught in a moment,
Where you just can’t fight, cos you just won’t win.

Outro Rap

When you look at life through rose coloured glasses,
You lose sight of the things that truly matter,
Then suddenly when your whole world crashes,
It’s like swimming through life in a sea of molasses.
You cannot move cos your body's numb,
You look in the mirror and think why was I so dumb,
A head on collision replayed in slow motion,
Forget all that crap about love and devotion.

Outro

You're breathing out,
You're breathing in,
You can’t get out,
You can’t stay in.

Outro Verse

My friends said it wouldn’t last,
I was living in the past,
They all said it wouldn’t work,
Cos you were such a jerk.

About the Song

There often comes a point in a long-term relationship where you realise things are not working but you are too afraid to confront your fears. Everyone else can see it but you can't. We have all been stupid and naïve!
