"So Far Away" as written by James Eric Sellers, Walter Flakus, Andy Kubiszewski and Christopher Hall....
Each night I feel the distance that has grown between us
Open up as lonely as the space between the stars
I wish that I could find a way
To smash my fist right through these walls
Of ugliness and emptiness
And gently touch your face

But every time that I touch you
You feel so far away
And every time that you need me
I feel so far away

As you lie silently beside me choking back your tears
I wonder if you recognize
That silence now defines us
Desperately I try to fight this overwhelming sense
That I may never find
The strength to change
How hopeless we've become

But every time that I touch you
You feel so far away
And every time that you need me
I feel so far away
Can I feel so far away?
(Feel so far away
I feel so far, far away)

We need to find a way to break this silence (x3)
that's between us
So I scream your name
I scream your name (x3)

But every time that I touch you
You feel so far away
And every time that you need me
You feel so far away
And every time that you reach out
You feel me pull away
And every time that I touch you, I touch you, I touch you
You feel so far away

    General Commenti think this song is about a relashionship that has nothing left, there is no communication or love, just this coldness where you can't leave and you can't stay at the same time, but he wants to fix it back to how it used to be.

    General CommentI'm seriously considering sending this song to one of my ex-gf's cus she and I have tried getting together several times and every time it doens't work out...some of it I think is my fault for a lot of things...but it just really explains it well...She was always kind of distant when we were together and I could never figure out why...and neither could she so things never really worked out...and I feel so bad for hurting her...but this song kinda explains why I had to...

    General Commentyeah she left me. i miss her. doesn't work anymore no matter how much i (and hopefullu she) wants. she moved on. can't reach her. plays her games of teasing. says she loves me. and when i feel her embrace, it feel so cold and empty to what it used to be.

    General CommentJust so you know those lyrics are WRONG!
    the beggining part is "Each night I feel the distance"

    And then on the 4th verse it should be "As you lay silently beside me"

    General CommentYa, genius. I wonder if he has gotten into another band.

    And in the Chorus, it should be "You feel so far away" not "It feels so far away"

    I'm pretty sure he says "And I feel so far away" not "Can I feel so far away?"
