So Far Away - Dire Straits


Here I am again in this mean old town
And you’re so far away from me
And where are you when the sun goes down
You’re so far away from me

So far away from me
So far I just can’t see
So far away from me
You’re so far away from me

I’m tired of being in love and being all alone
When you’re so far away from me
I’m tired of making out on the telephone
And you’re so far away from me

So far away from me
So far I just can’t see
So far away from me
You’re so far away from me

I get so tired when I have to explain
When you’re so far away from me
See you been in the sun and I’ve been in the rain
And you’re so far away from me

So far away from me
So far I just can’t see
So far away from me
You’re so far away from me

did you know that Carole King also wrote a song called So Far Away?

So far away
doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore
it would be so fine to see your face at my door
And it doesn't help to know
you're just time away
Long ago I reached for you and there you stood
Holding you again could only do me good
How I wish I could
But you're so far away
Travelin around sure gets me down and lonely
Nothin else to do but close my mind
I sure hope the road don't come to own me
There's so many dreams I've yet to find
One more song about movin along the highway
Don't know much of anything that's new
If I could only work this life out my way
I'd rather spend it being close to you
But you're so far away
So far away...

I think that's all of it, I typed it from memory and I haven't
actually heard it in a long time. It's on the Tapestry album...ha!
album, am I old or what? haha In 1972 (I was 14)I probably sang the whole album everyday.

Thats great. See I knew this blog would reap some benefits. I didn't know about that song and now I do. Ms King is in my humble opinion the top female singer/song writer in all music history. Thanks for the contribution.
