More Than This
“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
And hopefully learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning”
‘More Than This’, written and sung by Bryan Ferry, is a 1982 single by the English rock band Roxy Music. It was released as the first single from their final album, Avalon, and was the group’s last Top 10 UK hit (peaking at #6). Although it only reached #102 in the United States, it remains one of Roxy Music’s best-known songs in America.
This simple yet complex love song implies meeting someone and feeling at the time that, who knows where we, like fallen leaves, will blow to. So it points out rightly, that it is living in the moment, soaking up and appreciating the love that matters, hence the refrain “more than this, there is nothing”.
The moment is so precious since it is all that we have. Love is the only thing there is. And, “like a dream in the night, who can say where we are going”? It could all be gone tomorrow, “there was no way of knowing”.
In the end, there is nothing more important than the love you share with someone, the moments together. More than this, there is nothing. – KD

Amen.
