"Never Far Away" as written by Chris Cornell, Belewa Muhammad, Ezekiel Lewis, Timothy Mosley and Jerome Harmon....
You are the road that I will travel
You are the words I write
You are the ocean I will swallow
You are the wind I ride
You are the cause to keep my head up high
I will never say goodbye
You gotta know I'll stay beside you
Right till the day I die

I don't want to change anymore
I've already paid (said, I've already paid)
I don't have to pray anymore
Because my soul has been saved

And now,
Whenever I come, wherever I go
No, you're never far away, far away
Never far away

You're the blood that's in my veins
You're my second skin (skin)
I'm a feather on the wind
You will bring me in
Every heart should have a beat
Every night a dream
Every king should have a queen
Every saint a sin

I don't want to change anymore (I don't want to change)
I've already paid (said I've already paid)
I don't have to pray anymore
Because my soul has been saved (been saved)

And now
Whenever I come, wherever I go
No you're never far away, far away
Never far away

When I fall hard you make sure I don't break
Gimme life inside of heavens gates, I know it's forever (forever)
You taught me how to live like love comes first
Gave me definition for the words I know
That there ain't no place between you and me

Whenever I come, wherever I go
No you're never far away, far away
Never far away

    You are the wind I ride
    You are the cause to keep my head up high
    I will *never say goodbye*

    And now,
    Whenever I come, *where ever I go*
    No, you're never far away, far away
    Never far away



    You taught me how to live like blood comes first
    Gave me definition for the worst I know
    That there ain't no space between you and me

    Great song, he said he wrote this for his wife after being prompted by a host of a late night show about the song, which he performed directly before.
