"Further" as written by and Robert Duncan Mcvey....
And the same when autumn comes
Cold air I breathe in my lungs
Somethings new but nothings changed
Familiar feelings just the same

Soon too the warm air comes by
Lie back and stare at blue skies
Thinking back away and from
When I'll be here and you'll be gone

Further, further, further, further,
Further, further, further, further from me

I think now of summers high
And reminisce of past times gone by
Only remembered now in
Earth, trees the stars that have been there
And there forever held
Kept safe but memories never told
But felt if you went by
In never changing sky

And will be gone

Further, further, further, further,
Further, further, further, further
Further, further, further, further,
Further, further, further, further

God's love will save our light
And we'll come shining bright
God's love will save our sun
And thy will be done

    General CommentThere is no religious message to this song, despite the seemingly religious lyrics.

    I agree with Charon32, and that in a way that nature constantly continues, while human existence is temporary. The lyrics that really hit me are:

    "the stars that have been there,
    and there forever held,
    kept safe but memories never told."

    I don't think these lyrics are 100% accurate. However, when listening to the song, I get a picture of the same stars that have shined on this earth for generation after generation, forgotten memories under the same stars, which cannot tell these memories. The seemingly "religious" lyrics are more of a spiritual connection with nature than anything else. They're definitely not for religious purposes.

    Honestly, go to a beach at night, by yourself or with someone special to you, lay down, look up at the endless sky and twinkling stars, and switch this song on. It's awesome, and makes much more sense than me trying to explain it.

    General CommentIt's such a beautiful song. It's like how we all have special things that remind us of people we know, places we've been. And how those thoughts are instanly relived just by seeing something. And reguardless of what happens they will always be with us.

    General CommentThis album was recently released in the States (I believe it was released in the UK over a year ago.. possibly longer.) Love this song, it's pretty but always struggled wiht the lyrics. It seesm to be very siritual in certain ways... but almost Emersonian (of the Ralph Waldo vareity) in others. I agree it's generally about reminiscence, but in context that we are here a very short time, and nature provides continuity and familiarity. It's a theory anyway.

    General CommentReligion and it really annoyed me, it has nothing o do about having a good time with your mates I wish it did as its a fantastic song but he's talking about how he's found religion and some things are the same, but he feels different, I cant belive it I love the song it just annoys me he goes and ruins it by "Thy will be done" worst lyrics ive heard in a long time
