Rewind (The Universe)

(Tribute to Neil Peart)

[v1]
I almost missed the chance
to see the rarest supermoon
They played a legendary tune
In a sky I'd never seen before
A beast in a planetary band

[chorus 1]
A tribute of the century
A signal to my ears
Rolls off the tongue then dissapears
Until the next replay
That's what they meant to me

[short drum solo]

[v2]
To the children of lyrical creation
You were an instant inspiration
A record worth every single penny
Your words are the very definition
Of eternity

[v3]
Sometimes good things break away
Never to be seen again
I won't let that lead me astray
On my journey to the stars
Your song will never end

[chorus 2]
A tribute of the century
A signal to my ears
Rolls off the tongue then dissapears
Until the next replay
That's what you meant to me

[bridge]
Please phone us from your new home
Or the nearest satellite
If you feel alone or lose your sight
Just roll onto your side
Let your fingers hit rewind

On the universe
[guitar solo]

[outro, fading]
A tribute of the century
A signal to my ears
Rolls off the tongue then dissapears
Until the next replay
That's what you meant to me

For Neil Peart.

Rush was not on my radar in the 80s or 90s as a kid, as I was mostly influenced by what my older siblings listened to- U2, mainly).

Although, in my teens at some point I heard my older sister listening to Rush. The sound was too foreign and adult like for me, and so I ignored it.

When I started writing music and then poems/lyrics in 2000's, at some point I heard The Spirit of Radio and the raggae part and guitar solo, drums, everything caught my attention and from then on spent a great deal of attention to Rush and their lyrics.
