All the things i tried to tell you
On the day i went away
Do i always have to leave
For you to want me here to stay
Couldn't you just tell me you'll miss me
All those things we never say
And i saw you sit there smiling
As my plane just flew away

So far. so good. so far. i would.
So far. so good. so far. i would.

All the things i tried to write you
From so very far away
Never had the time to tell you
Reasons why i run away
If i was with you tomorrow
Would you still feel far away
When i look and i can't find you
Feels like you have gone away

So far. so good. so far. i would.
So far. so good. so far. i would.

Please remember, please remember me.
Please remember, please remember me.

So far. so good. so far. i would.
So far. so good. so far. i would.

All the things i tried to tell you
On the day i went away
Do i always have to leave
For you to want me here to stay
Couldn't you just tell me you'll miss me
All those things we never say
I remember what it's like there
Towns that drive me far away
