Commentary

From Mark’s site:

The big choke. Victory was only a line call away….now it’s off to some sleazy bar to drown the sorrows…Jack Daniels and an escort. Everything slowed down in the board room that day, as he realised no one was going to make a decision. It was down to him. He made the wrong one. Oh well. Win some lose some. They didn’t call him a head kicker for nothing.

Lyrics

Here you are
On your own
In a moment of doubt

Closing in
As you sing
It’s now or never

Seconds are ticking
Make your move
Or forever

You will be waiting
Do it now
Before it’s too late

Some people say
A happier time is coming
To pass you by in a moment of doubt

There’s a lump
In your throat
It’s self inflicted

So we laugh
As you choke
Nobody cares as much as you

Moment of glory
In your hand
You can’t take it with you

Some people say
A happier time is coming
The lucky ones who believe a day in the sun will come

Those people say
A happier time is coming
But you’re paralysed in a moment of doubt

You’ve still got your foot in the door
Rehearsing your lines in the mirror
You practice every day

Constructing things to be scared of
Things to be scared of

Some people say
A happier time is coming
The lucky ones who believe a day in the sun will come

Those people say
A happier time is coming
To pass you by in a moment of doubt

Ba ba ba
