More than This

After More than This by Roxy Music

 

I can see space and time

But there’s no way of knowing

What lies beyond the mind

When that mind keeps on going

 

So I feel deep and wide

And begin unlearning

Then my heart becomes my guide

But it just keeps on turning

 

More than this—there is nothing

More than this—tell me one thing

Beyond this—is there something?

 

It was fun for a while

All this knowing and unknowing

Now I wonder what’s worthwhile

And where I will be going

 

No care for the world

And this body’s burning

A string of false pearls

My soul is still yearning

 

More than this—there is nothing

More than this—tell me one thing

Beyond this—is there something?

 

More than this—there is nothing

Beyond this—I’ve been told one thing

Eternal Bliss—the rest is nothing

Eternal Bliss—the rest is nothing

Eternal Bliss—the rest is nothing
