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 that you’re just time away
Long ago I reached for you and there you stood
Holding you again could only do me good
How I wish I could, but you’re so far away

One more song about movin’ 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 bein’ close to you

But you’re so far away
You’re so far away

Travelin’ around sure gets me down and lonely
Nothin’ 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

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
And it doesn’t help to know, it doesn’t help to know
It doesn’t help to know

You’re so far away

    Missing someone and losing someone. The greatest irony of the song is that the one singing is he who is moving away from the person he loved/loves.

    I love you but you'd cost me too much. I'd like to be with you once more but you've moved on. So far away, i'm probably never gonna see your face no more.

    'so far away, doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore? '

    That's my favorite line in this song.
    True. Nothing stays the same.
    Everything has to move.
    But i believe that if we really love someone, we will spend most of the time possible with that person.
    Dreams, ambitions, and anything of that sort cannot replace the warmth a loved one can give me.
