There's a place where people dance
While holding hands
To light of the moon
Sing to me tunes
And I'm not ugly
And loved ones that died still survive with no pain
And I'd lose if it went away
Just how do I begin to explain
By the way, your way or my way's okay
Cuz either way you don't have a name
It's when she loved me
The taste of the dew and the music in you

It's the moment that don't let you down
The place you go when there's no one around
The taste you know when the tears touch your mouth
Would you think?
Would you seek?
Would you find?

And you know that it's always around
Yeah know that it's always around

I know you tend to complicate
Every choice you make
Oh please don't lose something so beautiful
It's very lovely
But who am I to stay in this world that I made
And I knew when you went, went away
Yeah I knew 'cause you whispered my name
And said you loved me
But how could I ever explain such a thing

It's the moment you open your eyes
While you think that you're all still alive
'Till the taste of the tears will remind
What you feel
What you'd feared
What you'd find
It's the moment that won't let you down
It's your scream when you can't make a sound
It's all you see with the tears rolling down
It's what you think
What you fear
But you know you will find

And know that it's always around
Know that it's always around
And I know it's always around

    General CommentThat (Such a thing) is very appropriately titled considering i dunno how to explain such a thing in modern music that can provoke genuine tears from a person like me who hasn't cried in far too long.

    You can apply this song to so much. Its beautiful and endearing. Thank you J. Loren. I've never met you, but you've been such an influence and mentor to me through your words. Never stop doing what you do.

    General CommentHere is the other half of the lyrics
    Maybe I'm morbid but I laughed


    the children will sing
    a song in the streets
    it sounds like the 23rd psalm
    to the music of 21 guns
    The flowers are dead
    in a vase by the bed
    in the place where the old woman died
    It's the same place she started her life
    The papers will all say her name
    And probably print the wrong date
    The day that she died
    Cause we're all gonna die
    Cute little puppies and bunnies and birds
    people who sing when they don't know the words
    You will die
    cause we're all gonna die
    It's just part of life
    Men women children hermaphrodites too
    animals aliens and certainly you
    you will die
    cause we're all gonna die
    cause everyone dies
    and all that was every and all that will be
    single celled creatures and anything green you will die
    cause we're all gonna die
    start saying goodbye
    from the moment you start up this miserable life
    you should know that it's only a matter of time
    till you die
    cause we're all gonna die
    start saying goodbye
    and the morons at labels that think they know tunes
    The army of lawyers who threaten to sue
    The hookers that blow them when I just want food
    and the assheads the download and never by tunes
    you should die
    cause we're all gonna die
    I can't wait till you die
    oh protestants, catholics and orthodox jews
    you dumb scientologists and guys who bend spoons
    well buddhists, uh sort of, and atheists too
    all you wack-job believers nobody's immune
    you will die
    cause we're all gonna die
    kiss your ass goodbye
    and sarcastic songwriters, guys with tattoos
    Drummers and bassists and engineers too
    and every last person person that sang in this room
    they will die
    Cause we're all gonna die
    yeah we're all gonna die
    cause we're all gonna die
    we're all gonna die
    and it's just a reminder
    of something that's frequently known

    I think he actually says

    "Yeah I knew 'cause you whispered my name
    And said you loved me
    But how could I ever display such a thing"

    General CommentLostnspiration- That's not part of this song at all. It's a bonus track, "Flowers."
