John Hiatt – Farther Stars lyrics

Friends of mine they don't hear
Clocks ticking all around their ears
They don't expect a thing
Bridges moving while the river sings

Long lost love
Where do we go from here
Farther stars
Different atmospheres

The river sings us back from the time
Drawn to heaven with a voice so fine
Final joys final cries
On and off like starlight in her eyes


You know your poetry kept me up all night
Like you I didn't have the heart to die
Still so many things left to say

Long lost love
Where do we go from here
Death's the truth and death's a lie
Love is your only alibis

Mary you'll forget this soon
Where we were and when we sang this tune


Long lost love
