Man of the Hour Lyrics - Pearl Jam



Review The Song (29)


Tidal waves don’t beg forgiveness
'CRASHED' and on their way
Father he enjoyed collisions; others walked away
A snowflake falls in may.
And the doors are open now as the bells are ringing out
Cause the man of the hour is taking his final bow
Goodbye for now.

Nature has its own religion; gospel of the land
Father ruled by long division, young men they pretend
Old men comprehend.

And the 'CLOUDS BREAK' at dawn; shedding light upon this town
They’ll all come ‘round
Cause the man of the hour is taking his final bow
Goodbye for now.

And the road
The old man paved
The broken seams along the way
The rusted signs, left just for me
He was guiding me, love, his own way
Now the man of the hour is taking his final bow
As the curtain comes down
I feel that this is just goodbye for now.

So long until we meet again | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/24/11

we played this song for my son who passed away 9/12/11; only today, was I able to sit and listen to the lyrics. So moving, this was the last song on our list, touched so many. But at the time, I was too emotional to listen. Our oldest son picked it. I am glad he did. It will stick with me always.



Immoritilized | Reviewer: TK | 5/1/11

My father was quite ill when I watched the movie "Big Fish". The song stuck with me. A short time later my oldest daughter's long-time boyfriend died. One night I played this song for her in my truck when we arrived home. She asked me to play it again. And again. And again.
Six months later my father died, and then five weeks later my daughter
died. This song has roots in my life that will last forever...

Bittersweet | Reviewer: nicci | 4/12/11

This song's lyrics are eerily similar to the circumstances surrounding my grandfather's life/death. He passed in 2002, not long Man of the Hour and Big Fish were released. I've always thought of him when hearing this song.



More than a tribute | Reviewer: TheEstablishment | 10/12/10

This is the kind of song-writing that most musicians only dream they can create once in a lifetime, and the reason EV and Pearl Jam will be immortalized as one of the best bands ever.

My dad is still with me in this life, but I still get choked up when I hear this song, because I know that some day I'll be without him, and this song perfectly encapsules what I feel for him. Thanks, Pop.



Man of the Hour and Big Fish | Reviewer: gsa | 10/10/10

I listened man of he hour first after Tim Burton's Bis Fish. A great film and a great song. My dad is alive but whenever I listen this I cry for my dad. He is guiding me though I don't understand him all the time. I love him, because he is the person who listened and listens me all the time. While Eddie says tidal waves don't beg forgiveness.. I feel as if my whole life is a moment, and we reached the end.. my dad is gone, me, is about to go. I see whole life of this great man, my dad, and I see mine.. I cry with the sad burden on my shoulders.. Hard to explain.. Like feeling like crying for a complete stranger you see in a bus.. You don't know why you wanted to cry. This song has a soul..



Makes grown men cry | Reviewer: el | 12/9/09

I arranged the music for my father's memorial service. This was the first song played. As I looked around at my siblings (8), other family and friends, to gauge how it was going over with the over 50 crowd - I saw more than a few grown men crying openly. A very powerful song that touched everyone,and pays tribute to the Dads of this world who do the best they can.



remember a girl | Reviewer: double point | 9/26/09

that beautifull song remember me to a girl what it can't be mine cause she is beautifull outside but im not like her outside i like her inside and i don't know how to tell her what i like her i don't know what can it got to be with the lyrics of the song but it remember me that girl



H. | Reviewer: Gregg | 9/23/09

My dad died when I was five, back in June 1992. I first heard this song in December 2003, when I was with my then-girlfriend in Denver, Colorado. It moved me to tears then. I've since managed to come to terms with his death a little more, but I still feel as if there's a part of me missing. However, just as there's a part of me missing, there'll always be a part of him filling in that missing part. It's "the rusted signs left just for me."

And he still guides me, with love, his own way.

Thanks, Ed.



amazing song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/11/09

this song reminds me of when my parents divorsed and my dad, who was my hero became an alchoholic, my dad is a very succesful and proud man and to see him drink his life away kept me wake at nights... 3 years after things are much better and this song still brings tears to my eyes.
