"Further Away" as written by and Bradfield/jones/moore....
The further away I get from you
The harder it gets for everyone else, for everyone else

The happier I am when I'm with you
The harder it gets when I am alone, when I am alone

The harder I try to learn something from you
Further away

Further away feel it fade into your childhood further away
Further away feel dazed and misunderstood
Further away

The stiller the oxygen the harder you breathe
The draining away just like an old man's dream
Just like an old man's dream

The simpler the answer the harder it can get
The circular landscape comes back only with regret
Only with regret

The more estranged I feel from my youth further away

Further away feel it fade into your childhood further away
Further away feel dazed and misunderstood
Further away

Further away feel it fade into your childhood further away
Further away feel dazed and misunderstood
Further away

    General CommentThe Manic's only love song apparently. Ever such a sad one too. I think Nicky said it was about the changing relationships within the band since Richie disappeared and having your dreams shattered(?).

    My favourite line is: "The simpler the answer the harder it can get."

    I think the song is about the wish to return to a state of innocence, maybe childhood, when you didn't feel so screwed up about life...

    General CommentThis a pure, simple love song by Nicky for his wife Rachel, who he hates having to leave to go on tour. He is by far the most domesticated un-rock star there is, bless.

    General Commenti don´t think it´s a real love song, more about the missing of a fetisch or a drug, which could be a lover... (the harder it get´s, when i am alone = when i don´t have you...)
    the line: "the simpler the question, the harder it can get" is a nice phrase, but i don´t see how it really fits into the rest of the song.
    any suggestions?

    General CommentWonderful tune - with a very weak opening.

    It feels like a travelling song, like Australia but more personal.
