So Far Away – Carole King (🏅Top 52 #1972)

So far away
Doesn’t anybody stay in one place any more?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
It doesn’t help to know you’re just time away
Long ago I reached for you and there you stood
Holding you again could only do me good
Oh 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 any more?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
It doesn’t help to know you’re so far away
Yeah yeah so far away
Traveling 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
There’s so many dreams I’ve yet to find
But you’re so far away
Doesn’t anybody stay in one place any more?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
And it doesn’t help to know you’re so far away
Yeah yeah so far away, yeh, you’re so far away
