"More Than Life" as written by and Lawrence Brian Greenwood....
Belief in the breeze
The smoky morning haze
The sun on her face
and the touch of lovers' hands
The pain that comes today
Is here, then goes away

And we are homeward bound
And I
I want this more than life
I want this more than life
I want this more than life

To touch something real
Will help your wounds heal
Like the sun on your face
The dreams of starry nights

And we are homeward bound
And I
I want this more than life
I want this more than life
I want this more than life

I want this more than life

    General CommentAt a concert Whitley said this song was about thoughts on suicide and how the simple happinesses of life are not possible to be felt in such a depressed state.

    General CommentI think at the beginning, its just memories coming up that are hard to forget, then they are put away for the day. I think its about going forward with your life without someone because you have to and "wanting more than life" to move forward without that pain.

    ps i think it's a leaf too

    Song MeaningThe word is in-fact belief, according to the cd pamphlet.
    The song is clearly about contemplating a past relationship. and along with its passing, suicide. It's a very clear message with the phrase, "more than life" repeating. The pain that always returns makes him contemplate, as well as the thoughts of the girl. The way he speaks sounds almost like sone admitting contemplations and it fells very sincere, hard song to listen to,

    General CommentI know this is old but i think that this relation to god and having suicidal tendencies from a girl, but anyways. "To touch, something real, will help your wounds heal" i think this is referring to god because god could and will help you. "Like the sun, on your face" God is protecting you like the light over you, And Starry night Is From Vincent van gogh who people think that the painting resembles god and the Heavens "The Dreams of Starry Nights" Dreaming of Heaven...But That's just me
