"So Far Away" as written by and Johnny/takac Rzeznik....
This morning you were gone
By the time my eyes were open
And I didn’t hear you say goodbye

There’s something going on
You’re here but you’re so distant
Just the shell of one of used to try

Now the days seem much longer
Ever since you’ve been gone
And nothing or nobody
Seems to take your place

Baby it was so good
But baby that’s all changed
‘Cause you’re so far away

You say that nothing’s wrong
That you didn’t mean to leave me
But look yourself right in the face

You think you’re keeping on
And that you tried so hard to please me
But don’t you think you’ve lost your place

Maybe it’s not so good and
Maybe that’s okay and
Maybe it’s time for a change

True love was our fortune
Yes this much I know
But you’re so far away

So far away
So far away
So far away

Oh the nights seem much longer
Ever since you’ve been gone
I don’t know what could make you decide
Just to end your stay

True love was our fortune
A gift to behold
But you’re so far away

So far away
So far away
So far away

    General CommentTrue love was our fortune
    Yes this much I know
    Guess the rest remains a delightful and irritating mystery ... balance?
    This was always Steve's song but I was never really sure why. Maybe love had been eluding him because he was always so far away. Maybe he got luckier with ... uh, can't seem to recall her name!
