Rick Tallis – The Moment To Know lyrics


Manhattan autumn, a morning like any other
She woke up thinking she's the luckiest mother
But she feels so helpless when he's not around
She feels the weakness he's always kept her from


Said mama I'm off now, I've made you pancakes
I will give you a call on every break
Bent down to kiss her and take a look through her eyes
To read the words she would never let him realize


Don't go, I need you
In every breath I breathe you
It's yet to come


The moment to know...


Staring at the tree, outside the window
She was counting the leaves, waiting for the next wind to blow
But out of the blue, there came a strong wind
Shook 'em off of the tree, all the yellows and greens


Glasses were shaking, panic in the streets
Chilled to the bone, she was caught in a bad dream
Emergency sirens filling any gaps of silence
She could hear her words out there but no longer soundless


Don't go, I need you
In every breath I breathe you
And here it comes...


The moment to know


The moment to know he was flying away
And she will never find the words to pray
The moment to know he will never come home
Manhattan autumn remains forever grey
