One Minute, or a Lifetime

May 22, 2000

…Whilst you were fast asleep last night

And lost, within your dreams

I got up from your bedside

And I turned the nightlight out

I had to step into the darkness

 

At last I feel this sadness

Lifted from my shoulders

At last the weight is gone

It’s lifted from my shoulders

 

I felt the voices speaking

A man’s life is short

You will ask for nothing

You will learn to heal

All this fear at last is fading

 

At last I feel this sadness

Lifted from my shoulders

At last the weight is gone

It’s lifted from my shoulders

 

One minute

Or a lifetime

Is all it takes

Just feel it

One minute

Or a lifetime

You can feel it

Surge

Surge like a flood
