KEN HENSLEY "(At) THE LAST MINUTE"

(Hensley) From Faster
Walking around with my head held down
Like Iím looking for hope in my shoes
Expecting to see my obituary
At the top of the 5-o-clock news

I was mad, I was sad, I really felt bad
With no reason I could easily find
My wheels were off track
I could only look back
To see that I was wasting my time

Self-pity and sorrow, today and tomorrow
I canít find a friend so this must be the end

But at the last minute my eyes were opened
At the last minute it all came right
I received more than
My heart had hoped for
At the last minute I sawÖ The light

In the city of light there are
Mountains of hope
With a valley of peace in between
Thereís a river of love
Running right through its heart
I felt like I was living a dream

Life without trouble, a day without end
Hope everlasting and a genuine friend

It may be hard to believe
But I know that itís right
Itís all thereÖ in the city of light

Self-pity and sorrow, confusion and doubt
Beginning to wonder if Iíd ever break out
