I've gotten in my copy of Roger's new anthology MOONLIGHTING this week and 
really enjoyed the Daltrey/McEwan song "A Second Out."  Beautiful work on 
guitar and keyboards by McEwan and Dave Stewart.  Here are the lyrics:

A Second Out
by Roger Daltrey and Steve McEwan

All I needed was a little grace
To take a second out.
Just some time to recuperate
And take a second out.
Overloaded, it was hard to find me;
I had to let it out.
Rested up, I felt it all behind me,
Was just a second out.

Well, time is the healer;
Don't let it pass you by.
Well, time is the healer,
But oh how it flies.
Take a second out,
Take a second out.

I never noticed how things had changed;
I was missing out.
Everything had been rearranged;
I never listened out.
Out of touch with everyone around me,
And they were moving out.
I'd given much and yet,
I'd found me to be losing out.

Well, time is the healer;
Don't let it pass you by.
Well, time is the healer,
But oh how it flies.
Take a second out,
Take a second out.

Well, time is the healer;
Don't let it pass you by.
Well, time is the healer,
But oh how it flies.
Take a second out,
Take a second out,
Take a second out.
