Farther

  • Nothing much matters to me
    so I don't see why I should
    hold so tightly
    to a memory
    that I can't speak of
    I think about it nightly
    how you opened up
    your life for me
    Why are you still lonely?
    Though I'm not the type who begs
    I'm thinking how you'd open up your legs
    But I'm farther from you every day
    And a woman talking to herself
    gathers up the shit she couldn't sell
    Chances don't bode well
    tomorrow and
    Talking to myself pass by,
    I miss you
    but know the face you make
    Like when you found me out
    for the fake
    I am
    So easily
    you see through me
    What do you do to me
    to make me treat you so bad?
    I keep hoping
    that you'll speak to me
    But I'm father from you every day
    All I think about is waiting
    and the people
    we are changing into
    There was a sound
    but I don't know how it goes
    There was something
    we went through,
    blew in from the coast
    You said,
    you are of the earth,
    I am of the sky
    I don't even know what the hell that means
    Father from you
    every day
    All I think about is waiting
    and all the people
    we are fading into
    And I think about you
    dying years from now
    never having known
    Who you are
    Farther from you
    everyday

  • Joey from Cleveland, GaI totally agree with David, that really seems to be the emotion that Stephan was trying to capture with this song. This song really is amazing, one of my all time favorites.
