What Else Is There?

Album: The Understanding (2004)
Charted: 32
  • It was me on that road
    But you couldn't see me
    Too many lights out, but nowhere near here

    It was me on that road
    Still you couldn't see me
    And then flashlights and explosions

    Roads end getting nearer
    We cover distance but not together

    I am the storm and I am the wonder
    And the flashlights, nightmares
    And sudden explosions

    I don't know what more to ask for
    I was given just one wish

    It's about you and the sun
    A morning run
    The story of my maker
    What I have and what I ache for

    I've got a golden ear
    I cut and I spear
    What else is there?

    Roads end getting nearer
    We cover distance still not together

    If I am the storm, if I am the wonder
    Will I have flashlights, nightmares
    And sudden explosions

    There's no room where I can go and
    You've got secrets too

    I don't know what more to ask for
    I was given just one wish Writer/s: Roger John Reginald Greenaway, Tony Macaulay, Karin Elizabeth Dreijer Andersson, Olof Bjorn Dreijer, Svein Berge, Torbjorn Brundtland, Robert Huxley, Danny Shoshan
