"Prime Time" as written by Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson....
Well even the longest night won't last forever
But too many hopes and dreams won't see the light
And all of the plans I make won't come together

Something in the air
Maybe for the only time in my life
Something in the air
Turning me around and guiding me right

And it's a prime time, maybe the stars were right
I had a premonition, it's gonna be my turn tonight
Gonna be my turn tonight

Well even the brightest star won't shine forever
But all of the hands I play are working out right
And every move I make feels like a winner

Something in the air
Maybe for the only time in my life
Something in the air
Turning me around and guiding me right

And it's a prime time, maybe the stars were right
I had a premonition, it's gonna be my turn tonight
Gonna be my turn tonight
Gonna be my turn tonight

    General Commentone of my favorites, for sure.

    The beginning starts out a little hopless, but then he feels "something in the air," something that tells him that everything he's working on ("all of the plans [he] made [that] won't come together") will come out better than expected. And this might be the only time it happens ("maybe for the only time in my life") so he'd better take full advantage of it.

    So now it's all going good, "but even the brightest star won't shine forever." everything's working out, feeling like nothing can go wrong, but it won't last long, so he'd better make the most of it.

    My InterpretationListening to this song, you can almost imagine what the songwriters' thinking...he's essentially saying, "You got one shot at this life...when the opportunities come your way, you've got to be prepared to take them for you never know when they'll come around again."
