Gerry Rafferty – The Right Moment lyrics

Spinning on another wheel, goin' round in slow motion
Caught up in another dream, driftin' on a blue ocean
When are you gonna reach out, only you can turn your world around
When will you surrender, and wake up to the real
But you don't want to start out just yet, you watch the seasons come and go
You remember and then you forget, all along the way.

You can make a better life, you're just waitin' for the right moment
You can find another way, you're just waitin' for the right moment
When are you gonna let go, and forget about the life you knew
When will you surrender, and wake up to the real
Now you know that it's all borrowed time, and still you waste another day
But you watch and you wait for a sign all along the way.
