Lyrics – More or Less

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

There’s nothing left on this bumpy ride

Maybe the straight and narrow is proven right

‘Cause everything I’ve been hunting down’s

Just a shadow on empty ground

Like a fly on the window I

Cannot get to the other side just when I

Think I’m reaching the mountain top I look back down

See the start – it’s a long way off

*

And I say Yes

More or less I’ve got nothing left

I tried every time for a finishing prize

Instead, more or less, there’s nothing I have left

But I stumble and fall on the starting line

*

All I wanted was in my hands

Falling perfectly into plan

And all I wanted has slipped away

Looking more distant everyday

Like I’m flying into the wind

I haven’t left where I started and it seems that

You could say that I had it made and then I

Took a risk and I threw it all away

*

I’d say Yes

More or less I’ve got nothing left

I tried every time for a finishing prize

Instead, more or less, there’s nothing I have left

But I stumble and fall on the starting line

I trip and fall on the starting line

*

And all of it fades as I’m approaching and then all that’s left

Is an empty pot of gold and a note that says

When you go circling the globe you arrive back home

You have to die just to know you’re alive

All I wanted was in my hands

Falling perfectly into plan

The closer I look the more it fades

Like it never mattered anyway

*

Chorus
