Song: Far Away

FAWM 2018

Album: FAWM 2018
Track: #6

Up to six! This is kind of a therapy song I guess -- at least it's both fairly personal and unabstracted. I can't ever seem to get these out the way I want, so I usually feel pretty unconfident putting them out there, but this one at least I think has a good _sound_ if not the greatest lyrics.

I'm a little bit afraid to say this
Cause it's not the most poetic message
Nearly anyone else whose ever felt things
Has found a way to be much more expressive

But I don't have a better way to tell you
You mean so much more than I ever can say
If I could open up your door now
I'd confess I couldn't live without you

You're far away
You're far gone
Flown away from me
Au revoir

So I guess it isn't really true
You're gone and I'm still right here living
Taking back all the things I wanted for you
But didn't ever get around to giving

And I miss the stupid things
In fact those are really the only things
Inconspicuous moments that I still have
And regret never getting back
A couple foreign tears for an infinite past

You're far away
You're far gone
Flown away from me
Later buck

You're far away
You're far gone
Flown away from me
So long

None of this is very easy ... I hope you understood

You're far away
You're far gone
Flown away from me

You're far away
You're far gone
Flown away from me
