"Just For A Moment" as written by and Matthew Nicholas Hales....
Just for a moment
Everything I treasured was gone
Just for a moment
The world was full of pain

Oh how I love you

Just for a moment
I faced my life alone
Just for a moment
My luck had finally run out

Oh how I love you

The same thing that blew us together
Might blow us apart
So keep a piece of me precious
And close to your heart

Just for a moment
All of my nightmares came true
Just for a moment
My heart was broken in two

Oh how I need you
Oh how I'd miss you
Oh how I love you

    General CommentThis is such an amazing song. And less sad than on first hearing it. He seems thankful that this person is still with him.

    Its like realising how much someone means to you.

    General CommentWhen I saw them live a few weeks ago Matt said it was about an experience he had a few years ago, when the band was tiny. He's a really funny guy, and so amazing live. But anyway, he was talking about doing a gig in germany (with a band playing 'acid jazz' - which he claims is the worst type of music you can imagine) in a brothel. So while he was doing the gig, his wife who he had recently married didnt want to stay in the brothel, so she wandered off. In his words "I dont know if you've been to dortmund, but in the daylight its bad - in the dark its f*ckin terrifying." So he wrote the song about looking for his wife in the dark streets of a german city. Thats what inspired him anyway - its about love, see the rest of the album :p

    General CommentThis song is so reserved and hopeful sounding. For me, it encompasses that feeling of extreme relief to be proven wrong about something(in a good way)...like suddenly walking into heaven rather than having the floor give way beneath you into a lake of fire like you were expecting. :p
