"Far Away, By My Side" as written by and Peter/eriksson Moren....
Go away from the window, Babe
Take a look at what's inside
And take a look into my eyes

Far away, but by my side
I'm finding ways to move away
This is the closest that we'll ever get
And we're not close at all
And still you seem to know it all

Far away, but by my side
I keep you on a distance from me
Push another old cliche', and I'll be kind kind and try to feed another man, and see how well you do
I'm not competing against their odds
I only know that this feels good
We don't have to be so clever, Babe

Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo Doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo Doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo

Can't get it out of my head
A tone in a voice
Annoy a lover's bathroom noise
I'm leaving this behind
Still, I needed to be find by someone
Seal another envelope, don't send it, keep it in a desk, And hope it won't be needed to be read
I'm not competing with her odds
I only know that this feels good
I don't have to be so clever, Babe

Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo Doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo Doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo

    My OpinionFantastic way to open an atmospheric, brooding album like the mighty Falling Out. Dark, depressing yet brilliantly arresting and melodic. In a way it's a shame the song (and the album) was made so early in their career. If Peter Bjorn And John released this now, it'd be a hit.
