​One Thing Worth Preserving

This song is by Opshop and appears on the album Second Hand Planet (2007).

I hear you scream
Was this just another bad dream
Restin' on my head

If I could stop this hopeless sleeping
I might stop wakin' up in another past life
Not I

I don't wanna waste your time
Waste your time

All at once
It dawned on me
That I might not stop this world from turning
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
No measure of sound
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Could detach us now
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
And this one thing alone is worth preserving

Denial would not hear any of this
No not here, not now
There's only so much you can miss

I'm feeling neither happy nor sad
I'm delighted with an innocuous glimpse
Of bright light

Where everything sings like crystal cups
But tastes like cigarettes - Oh!

(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
All at once
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
It dawned on me
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
That I might not stop this world from turning
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
And no measure of sound
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Could detach us now
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
And this one thing alone is worth preserving

(Music)

And you alone can not hear me scream (scream, scream, scream)
Yeah... hey-hey-yeah...
Oh!

(Music)

All at once
It could dawn on me
That I might not stop this world from turning
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
And no measure of sound
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Could detach us now
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
And this one thing alone is worth preserving

(Music To End)
