I'm half remembered halfway across the world
Twice removed from my second home
The shadow of a ghost in an old heart
With the leaves gone life 'cause I can't afford to own

When being young starts getting old
The new place saves face, or so I'm told
I'll be the new kid on an old block
A chalk outline on a playground blacktop

(Pre-chorus)
I'm just a moment
So don't let me pass you by
We could be a story in the morning
But we'll be a legend tonight

(Chorus)
I'm just a moment
So don't let me pass you by
They can speak our names in a dead language
'Cause you and I, we're alive
But just for a moment

I'm twice the man that I thought I was yesterday
Half the time I'm a world away
A flicker of a soul casting silhouettes
On a face of a town that could not get me to stay

When the sparks gone from the lovers
Just looking for a bus to throw me under
I'll be the new kid on an old block
A chalk outline on a playground blacktop

(Pre-chorus)

(Chorus)

Just for a moment

When being young starts getting old
The new place saves face, or so I'm told
I'll be the new kid on an old block
A chalk outline on a playground blacktop

(Pre-chorus)

(Chorus)

But just for a moment

Just for a moment

Just for a moment
