No Ordinary Moments

from Endless Summers by Peter Arvidson



I feel it coming down from the high score above
I feel it coming down to my hands, my glove
And I have the power, you say?
To make destiny whatever it may

And I feel the platforms are gumming up
And I feel the attic is going up
And I feel the skyline is open up
To the mighty mind, and mind the gap

We're swinging across the vine
Thinking that we can only find
Minutes until midnight, and I can't escape
Driving through hills

And the great escape, we want to know
How to say, we've got to know
You've gone home
How far do you got to go?

Let's get our seatbelts on
As we sing this song
Pedal to the metal

Everyday we've got to arrive
To new places by our side
Open up our textbooks wide
Take a page and learn

How does it feel to have this kind of tilt, have chills?
How does it go, that everyone is every moment?
Is anything happenstance?
Well, nothing really is a coincidence
Nothing's a coincidence

They say there are no ordinary moments
No ordinary moments
No ordinary moments

Don't go until you know
That there are no ordinary moments
No ordinary moments, and that's not just hoping
I think that it's normal where old stars go
That's what it feels like to go home

I'm told to give me up, give me something to hold onto
Pain is on the road, and that's ok

There are no ordinary moments
