Further Up, Further In

This song is by The Waterboys and appears on the album Room to Roam (1990).

Further up, further in
Further up, further in

I dreamed the wind came to my house
These are the words fell from his mouth
"The King you seek you'll find him true
But only if he rides the road with you"

Further Up, Further In

Further up, further in
Further up, further in

I dreamed a ... came to my house
These are the words that fell from his mouth
The king, you see, you'll bind him too
But only if he rides the road with you

Further up, further in
Further up, further in

I stepped aboard a ship that flew
It took me wherever it wanted to
Far above land, far above sea
The Dreamer and the Doer agreed to agree

Further up, further in
Further up, further in

I was sent to the war, stripped of my power
Gagged and imprisoned in a tall dark tower
I must have cried for an age or more
Till I saw through tears and I found the door

Further up, further in
Further up, further in

High on a cliff, in georgeous clothes
A madman danced on the balls of his toes
Forgetting myself I fell at the feet
Of the greatest Fool I ever did meet

Further up, further in
Further up, further in

The stars were bright and magic afoot
On the summer wind rose the sound of a flute
I saw the musician, my heart knew him well
What happens next no rhyme can tell

Further up, further in
Further up, further in

We came to the end of the world one day
A dolphin swam in a sheltered bay
I paid to the King what it was I owed
Put my face to the wind and my foot on the road

Further up, further in
Further up, further in

I find I've wandered far from home
But home is in me wherever I roam
I thought I was an hour or a year behind
But the hours and the years are only time

Further up, further in
Further up, further in
