Far From You

Album: The Future and the Past (2018)
  • I've seen it many times before
    They always seem to get away
    Down the stairs you closed the door
    In the limelight, no, you couldn't stay
    Is it all a grand design?
    Where falling stars run out of time
    And leave us all behind
    Oh, tell me why

    Tell me why do birds, do they suddenly
    Disappear instead of singing here
    Oh, what are we to do?
    Oh, we can't believe it's true
    We're so far from you

    I listen to the radio
    Hold my breath to hear you sing
    Far away and so long ago
    But without you I lose the beat
    Oh, who would write that grand design
    That pushed blinding stars into your eyes?
    Oh, the radio is still alive
    Oh, tell me why

    Oh, tell me why do birds, do they suddenly
    Disappear instead of singing here
    Oh, what are we to do?
    Oh, we can't believe it's true
    We're so far from you

    So far from you
    Well, I hang on every word
    So far from you
    And I sing and your voice, it returns
    So far from you
    And the sound is the most beautiful that I've heard
    Oh, tell me why

    Oh, tell me why do birds, do they suddenly
    Disappear instead of singing here
    Oh, what are we to do?
    Oh, no, we can't believe it's true
    We're so far from you Writer/s: Fiona Beven, Natalie Jean Prass
