Captured By The Moment
Steve Perry Lyrics


Where did he go
The man who said, I have a dream
Where have they gone
The four who sang, to let it be
Jackie´s alone
She lost him one November day
L.A. motel
One sad mistake took Sam away

Oh remember then, remember when
Captured by the moment
In the magic of a yesterday
Captured by the moment
And I hope it never fades away
Sweet Janis cried
Lord won´t you buy a Benz for me
Jimmy was right
Castles made of sand slip to the sea

Oh remember then, remember when
Captured by the moment
In the magic of a yesterday
Captured by the moment
And I hope it never fades away
Captured by the moment
Oh in the magic of a yesterday

Otis replied
A little tenderness we got to try
One open door
He tried to set the night on fire

Captured by the moment
In the magic of yesterday
Captured by the moment
And I hope it never fades away
Captured by the moment
Oh in the magic of a yesterday

Where did he go
The man who said, "I have a dream"
Where have they gone
The four who sang to let it be
Jackie's alone
She lost him one November day
L.A. motel
One sad mistake took Sam away

Oh, remember then
Remember when

Captured by the moment
In the magic of a yesterday
Captured by the moment
And I hope it never fades away

Sweet Janis cried
Lord, won't you buy a Benz for me
Jimi was right
Castles made of sand slip to the sea

Oh, remember then
Remember when

Captured by the moment
In the magic of a yesterday
Captured by the moment
And I hope it never fades away
Captured by the moment
Oh, in the magic of a yesterday

Otis replied
A little tenderness we got to try
One open door
He tried to set the night on fire

Captured by the moment
In the magic of yesterday
Captured by the moment
And I hope it never fades away

Captured by the moment
Oh, in the magic of a yesterday

For the 13 people who disliked this ....... All I can say is you are tone deaf and if you didn't like the video there's just no hope for you! Awesome video and song , thanks merrypeary

James D

how was this song never a huge hit for him?? This is his best solo work

femaleadelaide

Agree !!!!!!

J. W Tiny

I think as a Journey release this is a hit. After the 1st 2 releases of the singles off Street Talk the fanbase was split too much and tired

Dan Greenberger

This is his best solo song for sure crazy it go 0 press

Storm Rising

Because people suck. Neither He nor Journey got the recognition they deserved, and yeah, some of their best songs never saw the light of day.


People with depth are cursed to walk in the shallow waters of this world.

Shannon Corkill

One day someone will be writing songs with innuendos as to how Steve was the “Magic of Yesterday”. He has certainly had that kind of effect on many fans for many many years.

Humbie Medina

yea if a song ever needed a video, it is this one. I understand it much better now.

Ed milewski

Yep never understood until I seen the pictures of who he was talking about WOW

Terry Boren

There’s always something powerful about his singing. It takes a lot of balls to belt it out like that
