Moment in Time

(Grant Bentley)

Written to celebrate the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017 that I witnessed with my family in Madras, Oregon.  A natural phenomenon like that is definitely a supreme "Moment in Time" but so is life in general.  Being able to spend a special moment with your loved ones is really the point of the ride because it won't last forever.

Moment in Time

 

Get your sun block on

Now you’re really gone.

Dancin’ in the shadow of the moon.

 

From the light of day

Steppin’ into the grey

Knowin’ that you’ll be comin’ back soon.

 

See the color all around you

Like the Sun’s already set.

Feel the chilly air surround you.

An eclipse you’ll never forget.

 

CHORUS:

Moment in Time – love who you’re with.

Moment of Time sublime.

Moment in Time - sharin’ all of this...                   

Tiny Moment in Time.

 

When it stares at you

What’ca gonna do?

Think about the wonder of it all.

Every camera lies

See it with your eyes

Tell me that your world is still small.

 

And the family all around me

I have gathered for this sight.

The togetherness astounds me.

Love will make it right (in this…)

 

REPEAT CHORUS

 

BRIDGE

One Moment in Time

Love the one you’re with

A Moment in Time, yeah   

A Moment in Time

To share all your gifts          

Life is but a Moment in Time.

 

ALTERNATE CHORUS:

Moment in Time – care for who you’re with.

Moment of Time sublime.

Moment in Time - sharin’ all of this...                   

Tiny Moment in Time.

 

REPEAT HALF OF FIRST VERSE
