lyrics

We swore that we'd always love each other
Even from a thousand miles away
And that plan was working, now the only problem
Is we're three and a half thousand miles away.
So everything gets stretched a little thin
This town can see right through my skin
They say, man you got guts
But I don't know if I can hold them all in
When you're as far as you've been

And it's so far, so good, but so far away

I came to you hungry, but came away
With mouthfuls of disappointment
I wanted the salve, maybe salvation
Only got a fly in my ointment.
Once you start talking you don't stop for breath
Telling me how great is your new life
And I don't mind listening, but I sure miss
Seeing some rapture in your eyes
And now we walk under different skies

And it's so far, so good, but so far away

So who are you foolin' with that kind of face?
I have always been open with you
And my open eyes have got a big open mouth
So don't pretend that you don't see it too.
Now everything gets stretched a little thin
This town can see right through my skin
They say, man you got guts
But I don't know if I can hold them all in
When you're as far as you've been

And it's so far, so good, but so far away
