about

This song is about loving someone from afar and how painful it can be, with a tiny bit of existentialism thrown in for good measure.

This song is also an experiment in creating a stark song arrangement. I think it works well.

lyrics

Blink Of An Eye
(C. Stewart)

V1
I see you standing on the corner
Waiting for the lights to change
And by the look upon your face
It tells me you’ve had a terrible day
You know it's always fascinated me
Because it makes no sense
That we live and we die
All in a blink of an eye

Ch
(Ooh...) You spin me right around
(Ooh...) You turn me upside down
(Ooh...) It tears me up inside

V2
When you wake up in the morning
What is going through your mind?
Are you thinking that your life
Is something that you have to grin and bear
You know this torture that you're living
It doesn’t really have to be
I know that life isn't fair
But you can have your share

Chorus

Solo

V3
You are one of many people in this world
Who really hate their lives
And it's this hatred that you feel
That stops you from breaking free
This prison that you've put yourself in
There is a way to escape
If you'd just take my hand
And together we can make a stand

Ch
(Ooh...) You spin me right around
(Ooh...) You turn me upside down
(Ooh...) It tears me up inside
(Ooh...) Coz you make me feel alive
(Ooh...) This is hard for me to say
(Ooh...) I can take your hurt away
(Ooh...) But I will never know

Outro
I see you standing on the corner
Waiting for the lights to change
