Moments

In the style of

Emerson Drive

Lyrics

i was comin' to
the end of
a long long walk
when a man
crawled out of
a cardboard box

under
the "e" street bridge
followed me
on to it

i went out
halfway across
with that
homeless shadow
taggin' along

so i dug for
some change
wouldn't need it
anyway

he took it looking
just a bit ashamed
he said
you know
i haven't always
been this way

i've had my moments
days-in-the-sun
moments
i-was-second-to-none
moments
when i knew i did
what i thought
i couldn't do

like that plane ride
comin' home
from the war
that summer
my son was born

memories
like a coat so warm
a cold wind
can't get through

lookin' at me now
you might not know it
but i've had
my moments

well i stood there
tryin' to find my nerve
wondered if
a single soul
on earth
would care at all
miss me
when i'm gone

that old man
just kept
hangin' around
lookin' at me
lookin' down
i think he recognized
that look in my eyes

standing
with him there
i felt ashamed
i said
you know
i haven't always
been this way

i've had my moments
days-in-the-sun
moments
i-was-second-to-none
moments
when i knew i did
what i thought
i couldn't do

like the day i
walked away
from the wine
for a woman

who became my wife
and a love that
when it was right
could always
see me through

lookin' at me now
you might not
know it
i've had my moments

i know somewhere
'round a
trash-can fire
tonight

that old man
tells his story
one more time
he says

i've had my moments
days-in-the-sun
moments
i-was-second-to-none
moments

when i knew
i did what i thought
i couldn't do

like that cool night
on the
"e" street bridge
when a young man

almost ended it
i was right there
wasn't scared a bit
and i helped to
pull him through

lookin' at me now
you might not
know it

oh
lookin' at me now
you might not
know it
but i've had
my moments

i've had
my moments
