Losing it

One of Rush's most beautiful songs: "Losing it"

(suggestion: always read the lyrics first, you will appreciate the song more). Vids below lyrics.

The dancer slows her frantic pace
In pain and desperation
Her aching limbs and downcast face
Aglow with perspiration

Stiff as wire, her lungs on fire
With just the briefest pause
The flooding through her memory
The echoes of old applause

She limps across the floor
And closes her bedroom door...

The writer stare with glassy eyes
Defies the empty page
His beard is white, his face is lined

And streaked with tears of rage

Thirty years ago, how the words would flow
With passion and precision
But now his mind is dark and dulled
By sickness and indecision

And he stares out the kitchen door
Where the sun will rise no more...

Some are born to move the world
To live their fantasies
But most of us just dream about
The things we'd like to be
Sadder still to watch it die
Than never to have known it
For you, the blind who once could see
The bell tolls for thee...

By the way, I'm not into ballet at all but I can appreciate these vids. My fave part of the song starts at 2:47 when they begin to jam, they do this in a lot of their songs. Thanks to: KARENK72886 and banberry2112 for uploading these. (second vid has better audio quality, the first vid is more relevant to the lyrics)
