"Thousand Yard Stare" as written by Stuart Adamson and Bruce Watson....
I should have called you, brother
I should have been real close
You know I loved you, brother
Enough to take over your post
I guess it's always with me
I guess it will always be there
When I step on the runway, I always will see
The boy with the thousand yard stare
But you where asleep, my brother
I didn't mean you no harm
You where asleep
When they came through the wire
And I couldn't reach the alarm
You'll never leave me, brother
Though I watched them fly you back home
I'm still in country, brother
I won't make the world on my own
I guess it's always with me
I guess it will always be there
When I step on the runway, I always will see
The boy with the thousand yard stare
