Rebelution – Fade Away lyrics

When all of this is said and done
You will be alone
Cuz I know this won't last forever
Here's a toast to your unknown
Mother of us all
You and I are one together

I know this won't last forever
But I wish this would last forever

Waking up to your eye
I don't have an answer
And so I think I know you better
Waking up to your eye
And multi-colored sunsets
You're the one who gives me shelter

I know this won't last forever
But I wish this would last forever

Keeping it calm
Until we all fade away and move on
Keeping it calm
Until we all fade away you live on

Fade Away meanings

    I feel like this song has one of two meanings. First, the lyrics seem to be about nature and its beauty and secondly (but more unlikely) it's about an ex-girlfriend or lover that he misses. The first is the far more plausible explanation but seems that it can be interpreted in many different ways :).

    I agree. My first thought was that it was about a girl. After listening to it about 50 times I've decided (for me at least) it is about "mother earth" the references and inferences of dying or being gone has convinced me of that. Funny thing is that I found about these guys via an uber driver who was playing "count me in" (I shazamed it in the uber and started to download their other songs.)

    Oddly enough "count me in" is now my least fave of their songs.

    Great band. And if you like them check out Hirie. She has similar cool songs.
