playJudgment

from Sessions (2003) BUY

the time had come, the deal went down  
there were signs all around the town  
and for the first time we all looked around  
and we gathered as the sun went down  
along with the sky

we found a spot up on Old Town Hill  
where the trees turned white and the grass stood still  
and for a moment took a breath without regret  
as we waited for what would come next  
and Janie held my hand

she said ìwhat if there is something that I have to do before I die?î  
then she held me and she kissed me in the moment she began to cry  
for her last time

chorus

and the band was playing thunder  
and the sky was throwing flame  
and we danced in the stream of a poetís dream  
on the day the judgement came  
on the day of the judgement

tumbling fury, the sky it gleamed  
flashing shades the world had never seen  
and the hill began to shake and roll  
to the rhythm of the human soul  
never known before

some were scared, some were broken-hearted  
but the rest of us we got the party started  
and we feasted on a meal to meet the gods  
and with the wine that we had saved for so long  
we raised up our cups  
and we shouted ìhereís to you and hereís to me and hereís to us my friends  
let us live it for a while in style as we meet our end  
as we meet our end

chorus

and the band played on and we danced all night  
underneath the shattered moon and the falling sky  
and our souls burned bright like the summertime  
cause summer would come no more

the world stopped turning, the sun melted away  
erased our doubts, yeah it was judgement day  
and the fire felt like a soft rain  
and we didnít feel any pain  
just the fleeting love of it all

and we knew that all the madness and the glory wouldnít stop until  
it had swallowed up the party that was raging up on Old Town Hill  
and I was dancing with Janie still
