Roxy Music – More Than This lyrics

I could feel at the time
There was no way of knowing
Fallen leaves in the night
Who can say where they're blowing
As free as the wind
Hopefully learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning

More than this you know there's nothing
More than this tell me one thing
More than this ooh there is nothing

It was fun for a while
There was no way of knowing
Like a dream in the night
Who can say where we're going
No care in the world
Maybe I'm learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning

More than this you know there's nothing
More than this tell me one thing
More than this no, there's nothing

More than this nothing
More than this
More than this nothing

    One of the essential roxy music tunes. The parody of wearing out your welcome with eno, and love leaving you. His chorus is a cry, its a cry of hope. That he will survive this seperation, and move on. Even the cream of the crop, in music, are insecure. In fact more insecure then most. With a member of his band becoming an epic producer, and losing his rivalry with david bowie, ferry express his pain through an exceptance of failure. His imagery is poetic.

    I believe he's saying that we start out our lives innocent and having fun but through learning we realize that life can go in many directions, like the leaves and dreams. We as humans are free as the wind as hopefully we learn along the way, although what we come to understand is that some things in life are changeable but some things like the sea on the tide are not. More than this we as humans know nothing about what's beyond our life but through faith Ferry may be saying there is the hope ("More than this tell me one thing"). What though is the one thing he wants to be told?

    I believe ferry is speaking of the question we all ask ourselves at one point in our lives, that is, is there anything more than this life or is there "more than this? " its a question he has visited before in triptyche. As you see in the video he has cbosen to illustrate his song, we are first greeted by a crucifix shining down on his back. It is not easy to answer for anyone and the question clearly burns in brian's lyrics.

    Great song and always, ferry has tones and undertones of meanings. Often the least obvious on audio are highlighted visually on the dvd. (vhs those days). The song is sung in the light of a cross. "the cross". The light is on the other side of a black space and ferry is on dark side singing "more than this ... There is no, nothing". Mmm. I take it's a song symbolising more than earthly convictions.
