I think it's

May this always remind
You of the sea and of the skies
*natalie*



at least i can say
i was not afraid
i loved you all the way
i'd pick the fool any day.

Cradling stones
Hold fire bright
As crickets call out
To the moonlight
And as you lean in
To steal a kiss
I'll never need more than this

We all share the pain
Of our histories
But the ache goes away
If you could see
This night under stars
Well, I call it peace
If you say I'll never need more than this

And the trees grow so thick
You can barely see through
And the forest bestows
All the simplest of truths
And you think you'll be happy
If granted one more wish
But the truth is
You'll never need more
You'll never need more
You'll never need more than this

Want so much in this life
There's so much to be
We sail through our youth
So impatiently
Until we see
That the years move along
And soldiers and heroes come home
And they carry a song

Don't live in forgotten times
May this always remind
You of the sea under the skies
Blue looking glass
Lets make this our story
Lets live in the glory
Time, it fades away precious as a song
'Cause someday we'll be gone

And craddling stones
Hold fire bright
As we watch the glow
Of the morning light
Someday our bones here they will lie
And so we sing

As the years move along
And soldiers and heroes come home
And they carry a song
Lets make this our story
Lets live in the glory
Time, it fades away precious as a song
'Cause someday we'll be gone


-----------------------------------------------------------------

Blue looking glass... get it?
the sea under the skies....

I need more time to let it all sink in.

I feel like the song has disconnects. Idk, it doesn't exactly stick together that well for me. It's not one of the songs I can automatically remember easily. It's like each part is it's own song almost. It needs time to grow for me.

My dogs always bark when victor does in the song.


Question... Is that a harpsicord or a harmonium at the end of the song?

I'm pretty sure it's not a harmonium. Harmoniums have more of a resonating sound, almost as if more than one note is being played at once. They are neat. They usually have a bit of a deeper sound than what you hear on More Than This too, from what I've heard of them.

Just heard it for the first time (well, not really 'cause I just heard it repeatedly...) and it's definately one of my favs. Great new album (although personaly I really don't think any album will ever replace "Be not Nobody"!!!).

(I really didnt want to make another thread for this discussion... and hopefully people will read this)...


But I was wondering, do you think "More than this" was one of the 6 tracks she submitted for the Chronicles of Narnia musical...

The lyrics sound a bit like it in that context and also the "Lets make it our story..."part sounds very musical-ish...

A harmonium sounds very airy, almost like a flute.
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.
