Don't go on
Looking for the love
In the illusion of it all
The answers in the dream
'Cause I have been through mire and confusion
I am free

As far as I can see is Nashville skyline
Underneath it all, you yourself are free

14 hours ago
I was living in a dream
I was living for the scene
I was floating high above
'Cause I have been through mire and confusion
I am free

As far as I can see is Nashville skyline
Underneath it all, you yourself are free
Floating high above the Nashville skyline

And underneath it all, yourself are free
You yourself are
Forevermore is the love that you need to believe
And you yourself are there
Floating high above the Nashville skyline

    General CommentThis song was written during a time when JR was filming a movie in LA and flying back and forth from Nashville. During his many flights he fell in love with the Nashville Skyline. If you have ever seen a sunset in Nashville in summer you would get it for sure.

    Song MeaningI like this one too but a few others on Opaline too, as far as I'm concerned maybe 4-5 of them are classics.

    I like that here there is an option for comment type and that they give you the option of interpretation or meaning, since that really is a good distinction.

    In a way interpretation and meaning is about the same thing, but I guess I like meaning because it's more of what it means to you since meaning aside from that is an interpretation, but what something means to us is just how it is naturally for us and not an X=y kind of dry interpretation. I think often something can be meaningful to us without us really being able to interpret why it is, which is more.. meaningful! I mean, you can interpret anything right, but the interpretation may not be meaningful to you if you don't think it's a good song, but you CAN say something is meaningful to you without being able to put your finger on it like an interpretation.

    Anyway back about the song, I think it's one of those you'll actually LOSE meaning if you try to interpret it in a literal way. Like you can ask what does he mean by being free? What scene, what is the dream and so on - but the basic idea is pretty clear. I think it can apply to lots of situations in life, or life in general even. But the main point I think is what Tom said, and where the lyrics said "You yourself are - Forevermore is the love that you need to believe" which is pretty clear.

    Sorry to write so much, but if I was to try and put it in a nutshell I guess it's just like it says ".. don't go on, looking for the love in the illusion of it all .. underneath it all, you yourself are free.. you yourself are forevermore the love that you need to believe." If you want something more concrete, then it's like don't be caught up in appearances, the love is underneath it all - and you yourself are the love that you need to believe. And if you do, you are free from all the confusion.
