"Where'er Ye Go" as written by and Paul John Weller....
And where'er ye go
That we'll never know
But as long as you come back
That's all that really matters

And where'er ye go
As surely you will
Taking with you most of all
Our whole breath and magic

But that's who you are
And we have to accept
We either live with it
Or live without you

So where'er ye go
And come ye back
As each time you do
You bring with ye such stories
That we lose ourselves

Because our echoes are forgotten
And you never forget
You just lose track of time
That's alright, it's really alright
For we couldn't bear to be without you

    General CommentCurrently, this is my favourite Paul Weller song...always transient though, he writes so many great songs. This is really clever, because it leads you to think it is about a member of a family that goes off on adventures, then comes back and regales his family/friends about it.

    However, this is actually where he goes in his mind. It is his family's understanding of this side of him, and the fact that they would rather have him about than not, even if he is a miserable b*stard...because when he comes back (to normal not from an adventure) he is just a pure joy to have about.

    No matter where he goes - his family love him and send with him their whole breath and magic. Even though they can't understand it fully.

    Absolutely brilliant.
