Moving at the speed of sound

Haunting lyrics from one of my favourite artists – Eddie Vedder.

Kind of like my life at the moment – I feel like I’m standing still while everything around me is moving.

Speed of Sound

Yesterdays, how quick they change
All lost and long gone now

It’s hard to remember any thing
Moving at the speed of sound
Moving with the speed of sound

And yet I’m still holding tight
To this dream of distant light
And that somehow I’ll survive

But this night has been a long one
Waiting on a sun,.. that just don’t come

Can I forgive what I
Cannot forget
And live a lie
I could give it one more try

Why deny this drive inside?
Just looking for some peace

Everytime I get me some
It gets the best of me
Not much left you see

And yet I’m still holding tight
to this dream of distant light
and that somehow I’ll survive

But this night has been a long one
Waiting on a word… that never comes

A whisper in the dark
Is that you or just my thoughts?
Wide awake & reaching out

It’s gone so quiet now
Could it be I’m farther out?
Moving faster than the speed of sound

A tribute to loss

Sometimes when you lose your head
When you get upset, we’re there to break your fall
And there’s no reason yet, why they took your friends
There’s no reason at all, at all
No reason at all, at all
No reason…

When you want to rest your head
On a shoulder that you know won’t turn on you
We’re all here, till the end with you
My friend, there’s no reason to go
There’s no reason to go, to go
We won’t let you go, don’t go
We won’t let you…

(Not one day that you are here has been promised to you)

Not one day that you are here on this earth
Has been promised to you
So make the most of every day as if it was your last
And every breath as if it was the same, the same
As if it was the same, the same
Things will never be the same, the same
We will never be the same, the same, the same
Things will never be the same, the same
Never be the same…

(Not one day that you are here has been promised to you
So make the most of every day as if it was your last
And every breath as if it were the same)

Phlex – Blindspott, 2003
