  • 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

    You're so far away from me
    So far I just can't see
    You're so far away from me
    You're so far away from me, all right

    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
    'Cause you're so far away from me

    You're so far away from me
    So far I just can't see
    You're so far away from me
    You're so far away from me, all right

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

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

    Far away from me
    You're so far away from me
    You're so far
    You're so far away from me
    You're so far away from me
    So far away from me
    You're so far
    You're so far away from me
    You're so far away from me
    You're so far
    You're so far away from me
    You're so far away from me
    You're so far away from me
    You're so far away from me
    You're so far
    You're so far away from me
    You're so far away from me
    You're so far
    You're so far
    You're just so far away from me Writer/s: Mark Knopfler

  • Eric from Beaverton, OrThis was always one of my favorite Dire Straits songs - but only in the last few years has this song started to make me think of long-distance relationships.
