3. Just Once in the World (3:28)
Found the throughline
For all humankind
If given the time
They'll blow up or walk on the moon
It's just what they do

For personal gain
On Thanksgiving Day
I joined the parade
I stood at the top of the float
And threw out a rose

Watched a blast from the past
Indigenous dance
Started to laugh
And then I just started to cry
This world is waving goodbye

So cut a rug let's throw a party
Birthday cards for everyone
Swallow hard and say you're sorry
Just admit what you have done

I studied your work
Like architecture
Cathedral of words
The meaning's not easy to tell
Comes back around on itself

Admirers, your biographer
The odometer
There's no way to turn back the clock
It's going to run until it stops

So excited to play
Turned up all the way
Electric, ecstatic, psychotic
Jumped into the drums
Was pandemonium

So if it's time let's go together
I will be your ballast now
Let's sail into that stormy weather
No matter how it turns out

I just want to stand by your side
When everyone calls you a lie
I'll be your shield
There's still some truth worth defending
Let's stroll to the edge of the cliff
Stop here and give me a kiss
Now we're walking on air
There's no hell beneath our feet

Guard my darling bride
They don't know you
Fear imbalanced bliss
Breeze and lightness

If it every occurred
Just once in the world
A love as absurd
As ours I would scream what we lost
From the mountaintop
