Thousand Yard Stare By Big Country.
-----------------------------------
I should have called you brother
I should have been real close
You know I loved you brother
Enough to take over your post
I guess it's always with me
I guess it will always be there
When I step on the runway I always will see
The Boy with the thousand yard stare
But you where asleep my brother
I didn't mean you no harm
You where asleep
When they came through the wire
And I couldn't reach the alarm
You'll never leave me brother
Though I watched them fly you back home
I'm still in country brother
I won't make the world on my own
I guess it's always with me
I guess it will always be there
When I step on the runway I always will see
The Boy with the thousand yard stare
>From the L.P./Cassette "Peace In Our Time"
