When the moment's gone

I recorded this a few years back and recently had an opportunity to re-record some of the vocals and remix it. It was the first track I recorded in my current studio so forgive me if I went a little overboard on strings and brass and drama! Enjoy!


When the moment’s gone

Here for just a moment
Already moving on
So grateful for your presence
Long after you are gone

I know that you can see me
For what I have become
Despite my flaws and frailty
How far that I have come

And when – I felt so out of place
The entire human race
Couldn’t put a smile on my face
But now - now the moment’s gone
I will know where I went wrong
I will know where I belong

I don’t know why I waited
I don’t remember any more
And though my fears have all but faded
I am stronger then before

Letting go – of the struggle in my mind
Leaving everything behind
For someone else to find
And when - when the moment’s gone
I will know where I went wrong
I will know where I belong
When the moment’s gone

Style, you ask? I go from electronica weirdness to straight up singer/songwriter stuff in a heartbeat! I try to keep everything separated in neat little boxes but they always seem to get mixed up!
