"Far Away" as written by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater....
If, again, you wander
If, too soon again, you wander
Far away, far away
Let this, too, be with you
An old tune somewhere within you
Far away, far away

Falling through the autumn evening
Every darkened street, calling to forgotten feeling
The passing ghosts and scattered leaves
If, again, you love him
If, too soon again, you love him
Far away, far away
Let this, too, be with him
Humming smoothly when you kiss him
Far away, far away

Haunting all the talk, and stalling
Every hope of sleep
Calling to some distant longing
Another soul within your sheets
If, some day, you love me
If, in truth, some day, you love me
Far away, far away
Let the words within you
Whisper to you how I miss you
Far away, far away

For if, some day, I wander
Then, too soon, I too will wander
Far away, far away
Far away, far away, far away
Calling to your heart, and stealing
All the want away

    General Commentone of my favourites on 'Phantom Moon'..as the song goes further along, Duncan's voice becomes more persistent in the interpretation of steven's lyrics. It's at that moment, that I usually cry.

    General Commentevery relationship is informed by music, voices, memories that, in fact, are not "far away" at all
