Lyrics inspired by characters from the film 'The Last Boy Scout' (1991)

lyrics

She's eight months and three weeks gone,
and the babies almost due.
She's done the weekly shop and the father's home at two.

The sun beats down, but the breeze keeps her cool.
The short walk home, where resting is all she plans to do.

This world has a funny way of changing in an instant,
with each sunrise, each passing day...

She's almost home, when she feels the life inside her kick within.
(A bus rides the curb)
The driver's lost control and he can't spin
(She sees the end)
and the clearest darkness takes over her mind.
(Her fingers slip)
But with her last lease of life she has the strength to find,
the vital minutes the doctors need,
to save the boy.
Goodnight (Godspeed)

This world has a funny way of changing in an instant,
with each sunrise, each passing day...

He awakes and sees the world for the first time.
A plastic cage, where no thoughts have formed,
yet in his mind, he feels like he's lost someone.
But this is all he knows..
He falls asleep.
He slides away and has his first and final dream.

This world has a funny way of changing in an instant,
with each sunrise, each passing day...
This is a sad story, here lies the happy ending..
With his one and only dream, he sees the man he could have been!

He breaks through the atmosphere
(Alex! Alex!)
He flys through the star filled sky
(Alex The Astronaut)
