"You Were So Far Away" as written by and Kate Marie Nash....
You used to be so far away
Now I can almost touch
I can taste the metal
Feel the gun in my mouth
Who will change my life?
How can I trust?
Who will break my heart?
And how can I rest as I must?

His leg twitches, he looks up
Which one will he fuck?
Takes her by the hand and smiles
you are mine tonight,
Forget about the smell
Leave yourself behind
There is something in the air
That reminds you of your life

You used to be so far away
Now I can almost touch
I can taste the metal
Feel the gun in my mouth
Who will change my life?
How can I trust?
Who will break my heart?
And how can I rest as I must?

    General CommentThat is so weird. I actually thought about prostitution when I heard this at first, but for some reason I just wouldn't believe it was about such a strong topic (apparently I underestimate Kate), and when I heard her interview about this song, I got so shocked I was right. This song is absolutely wonderful.

    General CommentI seriously have no idea what this means, but I'm dying to know. Seems like some kind of twisted dream or something.

    Song MeaningYeah, it was about prostitution. She said that she read a short story were this prostitute had this customer who just wanted her to drink his pee, and nothing else. And so he was pretty well her best friend. Does anyone know what the story was? There's a vid on youtube where she says what all the songs on My Best Friend were written about.
