"Far Away" as written by and Dan Whitford....
One thing that I just can't conceive
Is how to let you go.
And if you will stay with me
Then we will always know.

We will find out
As we change about.
Is this the last part?
Here is when we shout:

One thing that I just can't conceive
Is how to let you go.
These days await if we believe
I'll make it to the show.

We will find out
As we change about.
Is this the last part?
Here is when we shout:

And you could say, "give your love to me,"
But I was far away.
And you could be handing love to me,
But I was far away.
And you could say "bring your love to me,"
But I was far away.
And you could be handing love to me
But I was far away.

I've lost myself once and I see
That I was weak of heart.
And if you will stay with me
We face the hardest part.

We will find out
As we change about.
Is this the last part?
Here is one we shout:

And you could say, "give your love to me,"
But I was far away.
And you could be handing love to me,
But I was far away.
And you could say "bring your love to me",
That I was far away.
And you could be handing love to me,
But I was far away.

If you believe a hand on your sleeve
Can pull you over,
Because you know wherever you go
I'll be over your shoulder.

If you believe a hand on your faith
Can pull you over,
Because you know wherever you go
I'll be over your shoulder.

And you could say, "give your love to me,"
But I was far away.
And you could be handing love to me,
But I was far away

    General CommentI Looooooove this song, but not sure I get it.

    Is it about a guy trying to break up with a girl, that he never had the time / feelings to love anyway, or does he really wanna be with her because he simply cant let her go and think about her all the time even though he did something stupid earlier on (but i was far away)?..

    Or what?

    General Commentmaybe it's about going on tour and having to sacrifice a relationship because of it? or even just moving to another country, i suppose.

    General CommentI always thought it was, "and you could say, hello to me, but I was far away. And you could be, a love to me, but I was far away" *shrug*

    I love this song, though :D

    General CommentMaybe it's:
    And you could say your love to me, but I was far away
    And you could be a lot to me, but I was far away.

    General CommentI think this song is set mid-breakup. It's somebody admitting they've been distant but really wants another chance at the relationship - "Is this the last part?"

    General CommentI'm listening to a live set on the radio, and it sounds like Dan's saying
    "And you could send your love to me,
    But I was far away
    And you could be a love (or a lot?) to me
    But I was far away".

    One of my favourite songs from the new album. I have to disagree with justan though, I think In Ghost Colours is a much better album than Bright Like Neon Love... BNLN was good but patchy, this one sounds more whole.
