"The Matter of Time" as written by Huw Bunford, Cian Ciaran, Dafydd Ieuan, Guto Pryce and Gruff Rhys....
It happened in the summertime
My cousin and I read the line
The open book shook our comfy lives, ooh
Destiny revealed to us
Descending from his mystery bus, aah

'Till then we thought a permanent thing
Meant a permanent thing
But a permanent thing
Is no permanent thing
No, we've no permanent place to play

And now and again aftershocks
Scar our thoughts with molten rocks
The scorching sun lies a touch ahead, ooh
The matter of time taught to us
Our parents would not be there to fuss, aah

'Till then we thought a permanent thing
Meant a permanent thing
But no permanent thing
Is a permanent thing
No, we've no permanent place to play

And I remember talking about time
And I remember shivers down my spine
And I remember talking about time
And I remember shivers down my spine
And I remember shaking, ooh
