What is this loneliness without you?
Yeah a sky without its stars
A heart without its love
Why do you seem so very far?
They say that you are closer
They say that you are near
I cannot see or feel you,
yet these eyes of mine are clear

Are you made from magic?
Are you made from wishful thinking?
I'll keep on believing if you keep my boat from sinking
We're both in this together
Keep away from stormy weather
Never get me back home to you

There's many roads and many paths that lead to you
Some say their false but I believe all of them are true
Hey, all of them are true
The green earth and the sky blue
Yeah, baby baby I'm a fool
A fool without you
A fool without you

Yeah well I have come to learn that all the jackals have their say
Howlin' to the moon trying to remedy their pain
Pain of separation
Looking for a love gone lost
Mountains high, valleys low
Whatever it's the cost

I may be a dreamer, yeah, but I believe in faith
Only in the darkness can you see the stars ablaze
In my darkest hour I shall keep my strength and say,
"Go and let your fire live, yeah"

There's many roads and many paths that lead to you
Some say their false but I believe all of them are true
All of them are true
The green earth and the sky blue
Yeah baby baby I'm a fool
A fool without you

There's many roads and many paths that lead to you
Some say their false but I believe all of them are true
All of them are true
The green earth and the sky blue
Yeah baby baby I'm a fool
A fool without you
A fool without you

    General CommentI love this song. I think Trevor's message in this is so perfect.

    "There's many roads and many paths that lead to you
    Some say their false but I believe all of them are true"

    I think he is just talking about God and life and everybody taking their own path to get there. Some people take different roads to get to the same place but just because they aren't on the same road as you doesn't mean they are lost or off course they are just taking their own way. If we all have the same common goal in mind it doesn't matter how you get there as long as you get there.

    "Are you made from magic?
    Are you made from wishful thinking?
    I'll keep on believing if you keep my boat from sinking
    We're both in this together"

    I think that is perfectly said. "Are you made from wishful thinking?"
    We may not know everything about him but the idea of God is so beautiful. Maybe He has just been made from wishful thinking but to step back and Say I believe in Him. No one wants to feel alone and I think this is really letting know we aren't alone. That says to me if God will just help me and keep me from sinking I'll keep believing in him and we are in this together.
    So cool.

    My Opinion"I may be a dreamer, yeah, but I believe in faith
    Only in the darkness can you see the stars ablaze"


    Speaks right to me.

    Stop trying to pick everything apart; that's where people become miserable. I mean, to be so arrogant as to think we are more intelligent that He who created us. "If I can't figure it out (or there is no physical proof) it can't be real"... It's meant for us not to "know" yet; it's part of the journey. And personally, I like not knowing. I like that I can completely put my trust/hope into a Higher Power. I feel sad for those who can't/don't.

    "Yeah well I have come to learn that all the jackals have their say
    Howlin' to the moon trying to remedy their pain"

    So true and so sad.
