Far From Me

Lyrics: Brent Mydland
Music: Brent Mydland

You say you want to try again
Wear it down between the lines
Well I have a better end in mind
It doesn't seem you really have to close your eyes to see
Though I know you don't mean to be
You are so far from me

There was something I had caught inside
Screaming hard to make it known
In time it died alone
It doesn't seem you really have to close your eyes to see
You have been all you'll be to me
It's just too late; and we can't relate at all

It doesn't seem you really have to close your eyes to see
Though I know you don't mean to be
You are so far from me

This time's the last time I want to say so long
This song's my last song for you
There's nothing here to hold on to
Nothing to hold on to
