When You’re Still Stuck in That Moment in Time

I’ve had those moments. Moments that are bittersweet and gone now. I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve had those moments, too. It can be tricky to let go of them and move on with life.

Thankfully, it is possible to let go and move on.

Be grateful for those moments. They helped make you who you are today, for better or for worse. They were an essential part of your growth. You discovered strength within yourself you didn’t know you had. You woke up to a part of yourself you didn’t realize was there.

And yes, an essential element of getting unstuck is to realize and admit that you’re stuck in the first place. The awareness of your current situation helps you create a different situation.

You don’t have to stay stuck in the past, and neither do I. Here’s to getting unstuck, being grateful, and creating new moments to enjoy and be grateful for.

Enjoy these lyrics. This is one of my earlier songs, from before I wrote dozens of other songs.

“Still Stuck” lyrics by James Barnett

I’m still stuck at that moment in time
Back when it seemed that I was fully alive
I’m there with you now that you’re gone
I’m there with you now that you’re gone

What was it we said
What was it we did
That cut to the heart of me
And hasn’t let go
No matter the distance of time
Was what we had such a crime

Our connection was gripping
But now our hands are slipping
Away into the shadows
And out of the light
We’ve broken our bond
How can I go on
How can I ever go on

I’m still stuck at that moment in time
Back when it seemed that I was fully alive
I’m there with you now that you’re gone
I’m there with you now that you’re gone

You haunt me in the night
I awaken with great fright
I look to see if you’re there
Even though I know you’re not
I thought we shared so much
However much, it still came to an end

With nothing left
We’re not even friends
Such blistering heights
Such punishing depths
The highs and lows of life
The harmony and the strife

I’m still stuck at that moment in time
Back when it seemed that I was fully alive
I’m there with you now that you’re gone
I’m there with you now that you’re gone

I’m still stuck at that moment in time
Back when it seemed that I was fully alive
I’m there with you now that you’re gone
I’m there with you now that you’re gone

    1. Thank you, Maisie. This was one of my earlier songs. I’m sharing lyrics in a random order. Some are more recent, and some are from further back. I’ve sung this song for multiple people and got some positive feedback. It’s encouraging to keep going with writing.

      1. James, I’m glad to hear this was not a recent song. Before I knew this, I wrote a poem in response. I hope you like it.

        Oh heartbroken soul
        So strong the pull
        Of love so deep and pure
        Stand steady, endure
        The lifeline stays true
        The day does dawn
        The sun shall shine
        Your face shall bask in light
        And flood your intrepid life
        You will delight in life
        Even more
        Take heart, take heart
        You are loved, always loved

        The word “intrepid” means: characterized by resolute fearlessness, fortitude, and endurance. I did not know this. The word just came out. What an excellent word for you!
