Stuck in a moment

Im not afraid of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me that I haven't already heard
Im just trying to find a decent melody
A song that I can sing in my own company

Youve got to get yourself together
Youve got stuck in a moment
And now you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

I will not forsake the colours that you bring
The nights you filled with fireworks, they left you with nothing
I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears, through your eyes I can see

And you are such a fool
To worry like you do
I know it's tough
And you can never get enough
Of what you don't really need now, my, oh my

Youve got to get yourself together
Youve got stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it
Oh love, look at you now
Youve got yourself stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm till you discover how deep
I wasn't jumping, for me it was a fall
Its a long way down to nothing at all

Youve got to get yourself together
Youve got stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day wont last
And if our way should falter
Along the stony pass
Its just a moment
This time will pass

    I believe he wasn't speaking to a friend, as much as he was speaking to himself. Reflecting on the mediocrity that had kept him from his dreams. Kept him protecting himself from lovers. And he finally saw that it would all come to pass if he just let it go.

    Things might not be perfect in your relationship at the moment but if you persevere then it will come good in the end.

    Its a song bono wrote to micheal hutchins after the latter commited suicide. Bono says he was really angry at him for ending his own life and its about that. Its about being lost in depression so much so that you can't see a way out of it.
