The Song: Every Line of a Long Moment

The Man: Roddy Woomble

I don’t have much to say this week. I have a special love/hate relationship with Mr Woomble dating back many years. This song is off his d├ębut solo album, My Secret is My Silence, which is great. Idlewild (his band) I adore. This song I love. More than love, actually. Listen to enough to drive other people up the wall.

So, listen to it and love it. It’s perfect. Well, I think it is, anyway.

Every Line of a Long Moment by Roddy Woomble
Every early morning just to wake up and put coffee on the stove
The morning secret code
And every early morning when the night is always crueler than the day
I watched the sea turn from gold into

Every line of a long moment written down in my handwriting
It makes me feel free to do anything
As I look out across the wall
Look out across the wall and into the Atlantic
Look out across the wall
Look out across the wall and into the Atlantic

Every winter morning between clock hands than type out your day
And I become the only light that could ever reach you
And every early evening walking through fields that turn from green into grey
And you can only hear when I shout your name out

Every line of a long moment written down in my handwriting
It makes me feel free to do anything
As I look out across the wall
Look out across the wall and into the Atlantic
As I look out across the wall
Look out across the wall and into the Atlantic Ocean
Until it becomes a sea
Until the north sea’s waves they come to cover me

And I look out across the wall
Look out across the wall and into the Atlantic
Look out across the wall
Look out across the wall and into the Atlantic
Look out across the wall
Look out across the wall and into the Atlantic
Look out across the wall
Look out across the wall

Sorry this is so short – I’m on holiday.
