lyrics

So Far Away

I’m so far away
On this Monday
Still more miles away from your arms
I’ve been riding
Hitch and hiking
Never-minding honking cars

Since I went west
On this blind quest
Waking cold and wet inside these barns

How in the world did I get so far
And where would I be without my star?
When I get there
I’ll call for you
But will you coma a-running when I do?

I’m so far away
Lost three times a day
Tripping sideways
to pass the time
I’ve been thinking
All this weekend
Was I drinking
Or was I right?

They’ve got land there
We can plan there
Take our start there
Restart our life

Chorus

I’m so far away
On this Friday
Still more miles away from your arms
I’ve been riding
Hitch and hiking
Never-minding honking cars
Since I went west
On this blind quest
Waking cold and wet inside these barns

Chorus
