  • Lyrics
  • This was the second song that Funeral For A Friend wrote as a band. It's about a relationship that Matt Davis had in which someone cheated on him.
  • The song is named after the capital city of Alaska, because "it's a cold, harsh, unforgiving country."
  • On Funeral For A Friend's first EP the song was spelled "Juno." The Juno version of the song is more raw and less polished than the Juneau album version of the song. >>

  • Megan from Newcastle, Okwow. I always wondered what this song was about, it's so beautiful. And yes, Chris. that is a wonderful story, no matter what.
  • Chris from Bolton, EnglandJuneau was a Roman god who stole Zeus's wife from him. "Tied to the testing of wills" relates to the decision between old love and new love. His lover runs away with him but Zeus chases after them with an army of his loyalest gods. "Thrown to the wolves in the mind of your enemies" describes the danger they lovers face when on the run. Zeus catches Juneau, but instead of killing him, he shows mercy on his wife appeals for her return in exchange for Juneau's life. "Fall forward to even the score" explains how Zeus would rather they both survived and he had herback than killing juneau and her leave. While Juneau is prepared to risk his life for her she goes back to him - secretly she still loved Zeus but never told Juneau. "I'm nothing more than a line in your book" describes how Juneau was only a moment of madness in her life. Now i'm 99% sure that's a real legend, but even if i'm wrong, it's a beautiful idea.
