This Could Be My Moment
ÉñÔÏ£¨The Verve£© Lyrics


I'm the only man who ever really thought that I had qualified
From the corners of your mind you would care for another guy

Now I'm lookin at you straight in the eye
I know it feels good and I know you should try me

But every chance you get you just hesitate
Is there something in my look that you really hate

Open me up I feel real glad
You can take all I have
Maybe, maybe don't you think it's time ?

This could be my moment, somethin' more than weather
Don't you wanna try it (maybe, maybe)
This could be my moment, somethin' more than weather
Don't you wanna try it

I'll open up my mind, I swear I'd let you in
There's nothin that you couldn't beg steal or have
I'm lookin at you straight in the eye
I know it feels good and I know ya'll high
Maybe, maybe don't you think it's time ?

This could be my moment, somethin' more than weather
Don't you wanna try it (maybe, maybe)
This could be my moment, somethin' more than weather
Don't you wanna try it

There's only one
There's only one
There's one life one chance, come on let's hit the floor

This could be my moment (come on now!), somethin more than weather
Don't you wanna try it
Somethin' more than everyday, a chance to walk and break away
Don't you wanna try it

Come on and wipe those tears away from your eyes
This could be my last chance
There'll be no better night
Gotta go sacrafice (this could be my my last chance)
This could be my my last chance
Oh, better, better, better, better
There'll be no better time, yeah
There'll be no better day, yeah

The slap and the tears weren't meant to happen, that was all in the heat of the moment, feeling too personal for them. The director kept pushing for "more realism, more more!"

Ryan said he was having an (evident) panic attack, and having to say, "you mean nothing to me" so coldly KILLED HIM. After, Ryan broke character and tried to go forward and comfort his wife for what he was forced to do, but she was still stuck between reality and work in her head and went off script and yelled and yanked and accidentally slapped him hard because she couldn't separate work from reality, she wasn't even supposed to yell at him like that, and you can see how stunned Ryan was after that slap, and hurt, both of them. 😭 The director decided to keep the shot because, not only was it beyond expectation, but it really portrayed their character's dilemmas, so it was a "win-win".

After they finally wrapped, Ryan bailed and he was getting sick on the side of the set, and Reese collapsed on the set and bawled so heavily and also felt such guilt for hurting her husband that they had to have the medic on set give her a breathing treatment. Then the director pulled them aside and tried to get them out of their heads and realize it was just a script.

I couldn't imagine having to work against my real life partner and having to be so cruel and hurtful toward them and not feel pained. Such incredible, REAL performances.

And let me say it because it needs to be said: Ryan is completely underrated as an actor, he truly is. Their divorce benefited her and ruined his career opportunities, it's just a fact. Yes, he cheated, but that has nothing to do with his work life. Shame people looked the other way about him after.

And a part of me wishes they would have worked out IRL bc come on, their chemistry is amazing.

The fact that when Reese hit Ryan it was unscripted just makes the scene that more powerful

It looks so abrupt cause it was improvised.

@r0bz honestly I just watched the movie last night and I found that slap to be weird, unnatural. It did seem like it didn’t fit just how it was caught on camera. Usually slaps are more captured and you see the person who was slapped, reaction but here it was so abrupt.

r0bz

Aliyah Kilpatrick the sound is fake the angle is like that so u wont see that she actually faked it, if u believe this thats sad

r0bz

Aliyah Kilpatrick ofc they will say that

Aliyah Kilpatrick

@r0bz Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe have both confirmed in interviews how that slap was originally unscripted and that Reese was so overcome with emotion that she slapped Ryan and Ryan was shocked so they kept it for the rest of the takes

The slap was an improv. Ryan was actually so surprised by the slap that when he walked off, he actually went to throw up. Such great actors!

Countrycowboy08

@Crash Kat he's pregnant at that time

Trista Love

He didn't throw up that's stupid 🤣

Diana Anastasia

@Crash Kat they were engaged, in love so I can’t understand because I’ve never been in love
