Tame Impala - The Moment

[Verse 1]
In the end, it's stronger than I know how to be
And I can't just spend my whole lifetime wondering
I fell in love with the sound of my heels on the wooden floor
I don't want our footsteps to be silent anymore

[Hook]
Want them to be in the moment
Storm clouds are closing

[Verse 2]
In the end it’s coming, there’s nothing left to do
But I'm still not certain, just how I'm gonna feel

[Hook]
I'll only know in the moment
Anticipation growing

[Chorus]
It's getting closer
It's getting closer
It's getting closer
(I'm not ready)
It's getting closer
(I need a little more time)

Much like album opener, “Let It Happen,” “The Moment” focuses on going with the flow and living mindfully, but with the added element of learning to be impulsive and make crucial decisions when the time is right. On Currents, this track delivers a jolt of positivity after the trip-addled existential dread of “Nangs,” mirroring how one must continue onward despite periods of doubt. Kevin Parker once said: "'The Moment’ is the song that I most closely associate with the old Coogee Power Station. There are parts of the song that, when I listen to now, I’m right back there. The synth-guitar breakdown was directly inspired by standing at its base, looking up at it.'"
