A Moment Changes Everything

Only a moment - a drop in the ocean
Only a moment - the blink of an eye
Only a moment amongst oh so many
Ever concealing the nature of time
I watch them go by
I watch them go by


Only a moment - a mere hesitation
Only a moment - a shift oh so slight
It would have managed to pass by unnoticed
Had it not changed to "what is" from "what might"

When into action
Suddenly thrown
What makes the difference?
Can it be known?
When into action
Suddenly thrown
Where is the voice that says:
"On with the show"?
But I know it's so
But I know it's so
But I know...

Only a moment - a drop in the ocean
Only a moment - the blink of an eye
Only a moment amongst oh so many
Ever concealing the nature of time
I watch them go by

When into action
Suddenly thrown
What makes the difference?
Can it be known?
When into action
Suddenly thrown
Where is the voice that says:
"On with the show"?
But I know it's so
But I know it's so
But I know...it's so

No matter what you say
A moment can change everything
I've seen it time and time again
A moment changes everything
No matter what you say
A moment can change everything
I've seen it time and time again
A moment changes everything (repeat)
