45 second of ecstasy
How it comes right back to me
Fly so high and feel so free
45 seconds of ecstasy

45 seconds of ecstasy
Cuts right through the complexity
When I feel him right next to me
45 seconds of ecstasy

    General CommentIt's not "just" about orgasms. It's from Welcome to the Neighborhood, which is a concept album about life from first love to death (circular, since as he dies he sees his first love again in the song Martha). 45 seconds of Ecstasy is about a brief affair his wife (or her husband) was having and whether the 45 seconds of pleasure was worth the sacrifice. The second line can be interpreted two ways: 1) It was not complex at the time (2nd verse) but it came back to haunt them; or 2) how the enjoyment of sex comes back after being married for so long. Its great how a song can say so much in so few words, and shows how great and overlooked an album Welcome to the Neighborhood is
