"Further Down The Road" as written by and Bernard Joseph Fanning....
I'm not afraid to say
I've had my ups and downs
On any other day
I'd run me out of town
Now I'm standing in the middle of a good dream
Try'n to figure what I do and don't need
Hoping I can give myself a good chance
Not too proud to show the spirit that I once had I

I guess we'll wait for the night to fall
We'll Sleep right through to the breaking dawn
I guess we'll find out further down the road

Will I have the strength to take
The opportunity when it comes
Am I laid to waste if I lose my nerve and run
Now I'm standing in the middle of a good dream
Waiting on a number that I can't reach
Hoping I can give myself a good chance
And not too proud to say I'd love a little romance

I Guess we'll wait for the night to fall
We'll Sleep right through to the breaking dawn
I Guess we'll find out further down the road

Ooh well I never let love sink its claws in me
Ooh all I ever asked was happiness for you

Now I'm standing in the middle of a good dream
Waiting on a number that I can't reach I

I guess we'll wait for the night to fall
We'll sleep right through to the breaking dawn
I guess we'll find out further down the road

This feeling's worth its weight in gold
Just Praying for it to unfold
I guess we'll find out further down the road

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite Fanning song. To me it's about that confusion over falling in love. There's always reason to turn and run, always something or another to make you think twice. The main character realizes this and wonders if he'll ever be able to get over himself and comes to the best conclusion anyone can in this case: wait and see. Love is best taken just one day at a time, nightfall through the breaking dawn.

    General CommentI agree. He's waiting to find out further down the road rather than racing ahead to find out. I get the feeling from the lyrics that it's a journey (like back-packing from inn to inn), and the journey is a metaphor for the relationship. He's impatient, he's unsure, but he's willing to wait. It's far from being my favourite on the album, but I definately like the song- especially its pace.

    What about the- 'I'm standing in the middle of a good dream'?
    Perhaps he thinks he's just going to wake up and it'll all be over? That it's too good to last?
