To me, this song is the epitome of 80s synthpop. Especially now, after seeing the music video. I don't exactly see how it ties into the song, maybe someone can explain that to me. I like the music, but I like the message even more. Below are the lyrics. What I get form this song is: Let things go, especially fear, we make our dreams come true regardless of anyone else's input (even you, mom), the best use of time is to be in the moment, and it's more about the journey than the destination. And things can only get better. Howard Jone is himself a buddhist, and uses that as a source of inspiration for lyrics. He's also worked with a Buddhist lyricist and spiritual speaker, Bill Bryant.
