Far In The Far

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

One of the new songs on Jim Lauderdale's album, "Patchwork River", with lyrics by Robert Hunter.

Far in the far away
Days that used to be
Becoming days that never were
But might have been

These are the missing days
We could have been wed
Could have loved one another
And raised our kids

Instead of living apart, torn up with regret
Living with strangers we haven't met

Way down in the down along
The briar patch with rambling rose
Air like frankincense or myrrh
And son of gold

Days that could have been
Might have been but never were
Things just didn't work that way
I don't know why for sure

Instead we live apart, torn up with regret
Living with strangers we haven't met

We are not who we were
We can't go back again
Back to that vanished year
Back to the might have been

These are the days
That we mst live instead
Each gone our separate ways
Wondering how it might have been

While we both live apart, torn up with regret
Living with strangers we haven't met

Living apart, learning to forget
Or both loving others we haven't met

Far in the far away
