Paroles "The Real Thing" - Midnight Oil

I know the feeling
It is the real thing
The essence of the soul

The perfect moment
That golden moment
I know you feel it too

I know the feeling
It is the real thing
You can't refuse the embrace

No

It's like the pattern beneath the skin
You gotta reach out and pull it all in
And you feel like you're too close
So you swallow another dose

The pinnacle of happiness
Filling up your soul
You don't think you can take any more
You never wanna let go

'Cause it's the root of experience
The most basic ingredients
To see the unseen glitter of life
And feel the dirt, grief, anger and strife

Cherish the certainly of now
It kills you a bit at a time
Cradle the inspiration
It will leave you writhing on the floor

This is so unreal
What I feel This nourishment
Life is bent In to a shape
I can hold A twist of fate
All my own Just grit your teeth
And make no sound Take a step away
And look around Just clench your fist
And close your eyes look deep inside
Hypnotize the whisper is
But a shout that's what it is
All about Yes, the ecstasy
You can pray You will never let
It slip away

Like the sacred song that someone sings through you
Like the flesh so warm that the thorn sticks into
Like the dream you know one day will come to life (life)
Try to hold on just a little longer, longer, stronger

It's the jewel of victory
The chasm of misery
And once you have bitten the core
You will always know the flavor

The split second of divinity
You drink up the sky
All of heaven is in your arms
You know the reason why

It's right there, all by itself
And what you are, there is nothing else
You're growing a life within a life
The lips of wonder kiss you inside
And when it's over the feeling remains
It all comes down to this
The smoke clears, I see what it is
That made me feel this way

I know the feeling
It is the real thing
The essence of the soul

The perfect moment
That golden moment
I know you feel it too

I know the feeling
It is the real thing
You can't refuse the embrace

This is so unreal
What I feel
Flood, sell your soul
Feel the blood
Pump through your veins
Can't explain The element that's everything
Just clench your fist And close your eyes
Look deep inside Hypnotize
Yes, the ecstasy
You can pray
You will never let it slip away
Yes, the ecstasy
You can pray
You will never let it slip away
You will never let it slip away
You will never let it slip away

Like the echoes of your childhood laughter, ever after
Like the first time love urged you to take it's guidance, in silence
Like your heartbeat when you realize you're dying, but you're trying
Like the way you cry for a happy ending, ending, ending

I know
