"Far More" as written by and Jarrod/wiley Gorbel....
Is this the sound of our demise
Or just the opposite?
I love you and I miss you
What else is there to say?
It takes a hell of a lot more to complete this

Far more, far more to recreate
Far more, far more, far more, far more
Far more, far more than we can take

When you decide how much time
Do you let, do you let, do you let, do you let
Pass before
These false starts, these small meals
They're for my, for my starving hands
Just treading, just treading shallow waters
Avoiding the drop, the drop in the ocean floor

Far more, far more, far more, far more
Far more, far more than we possess
How much, how much, how much
How much longer, girl
How much longer do we need to wait?

For a moment when the blare of the tv subsides
And then song fills the air, playing every night
A change in the key feels like a change in the season

I pretend almost every, every other night
That this body and its entirety belongs to me, every breath
It comes and goes
It comes and goes
All night

Well, you can't dictate the way, the way I'm gonna feel
No matter what, no matter what I'm forced to see
I'll be the one free of jealousy

Well, you can't dictate the way, the way I'm gonna feel
No matter what, no matter what I'm forced to see
I'll be the one free of jealousy

Far more, far more, far more, far more
Far more, far more than we can take
So well, so well, so well rehearsed
I coordinate this kind of mess

I'll do it like, do it like, do it like
Do it like, do it like, do it like
Do it like, do it like, do it like we used to
Like we used to do

I love you and I miss you
What else is there to say?

    General Comment"Far More" seems to be more like a conversation Jarrod is having with someone (someone he must love) or a conversation that he wants to have. As though these are the thoughts that have been on his mind, waiting to be released and it has reached a point where they have to come out...I love how beautiful these lyrics sound, you know you have true talent when you can write and sing about the blare of a television and treading water all in one song!

    General CommentI think he wants an ex girlfriend back- he loves her and misses her
    "These false starts, these small meals
    They're for my, for my starving hands" - He's referring to her kind of leading him on making him think she's going to but not exactly doing so
    "How much longer do we have to wait" - Obviously how much longer he's gonna have to wait for her
    "I pretend almost every, every other night
    That this body and it's entirety belongs to me" - He pretends that she's already his again

    I could be totally wrong, but that's kind of what I got from it

    General CommentThis song has one of the best bridges ever. The vocal rhythm of the "You can't dictate.." lines is so amazing

    Song Meaning"Written at the end of a relationship, kind of the denial stage at the tail end of a relationship, when you try to recapture what was there in the beginning, but unsuccessfully."

    General CommentI agree with the above comment.
    He wants her back.
    He knows it will be hard.
    But he's sick of waiting.
    And wants her to make a decision.
