For Eternity

When I wondered who was gonna light my way
Just holding on for the break of day
When all my hope had gone astray
I longed for somewhere I could stay
When the weary moon couldn’t hear me cry
When the clocks had stopped
In the dead of night
When I had no-one on my side
You gave me somewhere safe to hide
Hide

For eternity
I felt incomplete
Chasing an elusive dream
Now you’re all I need

Drop my defences, let them go
Can I find the courage to let it show?
I need you more than you’ll ever know
I’ve found a place where I can grow

For eternity
I felt incomplete
Chasing an elusive dream
Now you’re all I need

I could tell the tale
A long winding trail
Through narrow escapes
Perilous mistakes
Sudden twists of fate
And a dragon slayed
Of a heroine
Of her sweet embrace
Of her gentle grace

Oh eternally
I felt incomplete
Chasing an elusive dream
Now you’re all I need
For eternity
I felt incomplete
Chasing an everlasting dream
You’re all I need
Chasing an everlasting dream
You’re all I need

Song Notes

In a track by track breakdown of Kablammo! with culturecollide.com, the band had the following to say about the track:

Tim: This is where the explosion starts to trail off and bits of rubble are falling around and the smoke is starting to clear. It’s a very sweet piano ballad, a very sweet love song really. It feels quite glorious with its soaring strings. It felt like a very nice way to start winding the album down.

Mark: It was one of the last songs we finished for the album and as soon as we heard it we were like, “this has got to go on.”

Tim: We had the melody for the verse but we couldn’t find the chorus for a long time. It was one of those where you just have to persevere. I spent a day and a half just trying to get a chorus, going crazy. Got there in the end and it turned out to be a real sweet moment.
