Now. The other songs on this album - classics. They mean more to me now that my own years are getting on. One Small Day got me through some bad times - "Oh my sentimental friend, your time will come again/One day where I didn't die 1,000 times...where every hour could be a joy to me/And live a life the way it's meant to be/One small day". One of my songs of hope.
Lament too - "Just as my eyes start seeing/After all the pain/The twist in my life starts healing/Just to twist again/In stillness and sorrow/Returns that softly sighing lament". Loved the ending of this song - reminded me somewhat of DePeche Mode's "Pipeline", but Lament out did that one! The music is sad and poignant - that's what stayed with me the most.
The one song which, again, hit me hard after years and a bad time, was Man of Two Worlds (okay, the ladies' voices are okay and I understand why they are there, to give it that Celtic Druid feel singing in - Gaelic?). I was at a bad place in my life and had to make decisions about which way to go. The verse, "Feel a presence moving into me/Painting pictures with fast words/Seeing places that I've never seen/Like a door thrown open on a life I've lived before". That line "Like a door thrown open on a life I've lived before" echoed for a long time.
Not the best Ultravox album, hence my three star rating, but since I'm an Ultravox fangirl, it still reigns up there. Just not as high as Vienna or Rage in Eden.
