And i couldn't love you
any more
than i do right now
and The Furies that i feared
were Eumenides to lead me here
here i linger
and the cadences we hear
may grow different in coming years
still i'll tell you
that i couldn't love you
any more
than i do right now
and if you should ever leave
then i would love you for what you need
i could still tell you
that i couldn't love you
any more
than i do right now

    General Commenti love the sheer simplicity of this song. the music is so minimalistic letting the her emotional voice pour through...transmitting the lyrics on a soul-bearing level.
    "and The Furies that i feared
    were Eumenides to lead me here " -- my favorite lines...you might need a rudimentary knowledge in greek mythology to realize their depth.

    General CommentMusic of Silence,
    What do the references refer to and what does it convey?

    General CommentWell, in Greek Mythology, the names "Furies" and "Eumenidies" refer to the same three goddesses -- under the name "Furies" they were avenging goddesses carrying out the punishment of the gods upon mortals. Under the name "Eumenidies" (which means 'kindly ones' - whether ironically or not) they were fertility goddesses. What I felt this conveyed was circumstances that were seen as devestating to the relationship were actually means to a greater end than could ever be imagined.
    Don't things often turn out that way? What you thought would obliterate your best laid plans actually are the exact events that make you the happiest later on -- that you couldn't possibly have planned if you tried.

    I see this song as emerging from a trial of great proportions only to realize love that "beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, and endureth all things" -- not a complicated assessment, I know, but I don't believe the lyrics mean to be complicated :o)
