"Captured By The Moment" as written by and R. Goodrum S. Perry....
Where did he go
The man who said, I have a dream
Where have they gone
The four who sang, to let it be
Jackie´s alone
She lost him one November day
L.A. motel
One sad mistake took Sam away

Oh remember then, remember when
Captured by the moment
In the magic of a yesterday
Captured by the moment
And I hope it never fades away
Sweet Janis cried
Lord won´t you buy a Benz for me
Jimmy was right
Castles made of sand slip to the sea

Oh remember then, remember when
Captured by the moment
In the magic of a yesterday
Captured by the moment
And I hope it never fades away
Captured by the moment
Oh in the magic of a yesterday

Otis replied
A little tenderness we got to try
One open door
He tried to set the night on fire

Captured by the moment
In the magic of yesterday
Captured by the moment
And I hope it never fades away
Captured by the moment
Oh in the magic of a yesterday

    General CommentI just have to write this down somewhere. Yeah, I know I'm a geek for figuring this out, but I know who all the people Steve Perry is talking about in this song are.

    Martin Luther King Jr.
    Beatles
    Jackie Kennedy
    Sam Cooke
    Janis Joplin
    Jimmi Hendrix
    Otis Redding
    Jim Morrison

    This song is about all those poeple, espically musical artists, who lost their lives but not their influence. Every one of the people on this list left lasting legacys and opened the publics eyes to another way of life, and to another way of thinking.
