So Far Away


Just bear with another song-posting.
After all, each one of us have soundtracks for every single little thing that strike the chords of our nerves.

Mine happens to be the song that you can see below.
Upon reading the lyrics, you can see to whom the song will likely appeal to, although songs are not meant to be bound by some frames of preferences, yet some people can't help feeling certain kind of attachment whenever they come across a song like this.

Without further due, I present to you, Carole King in her frank utterances of So Far Away.


So far away
Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
Doesn't help to know
You're just

Time away
Long ago I reached for you
And there you stood
Holding you again could do me good
How I wish I could
But you're so far away

One more song about moving along the highway
Can't say much of anything that's new
If I could only work this life out my way
I'd rather spend it
Being close to you

But you're so far away
Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
Doesn't help to know
You're so far away

Travelling around sure gets me down and lonely
Nothing else to do but close my mind
I sure hope the road don't come to own me
But there's so many dreams I've yet to find.


To those who have experienced being one trapped in moments of unreachable destination.
To those who have been going through along endless roads of waits and impatience.
To those who have endured the meaning of moments in abstinence.
To those who have embarked on certainties of longingness.

I salute you all, I present the song above.

Especially to you, T.
