Lyrics

So Far Away

Written By: Will Thompson

stephanie always looked me in the eye
wasn't nothing there i could ever hide
she always knew who she was dealing with
she took me in when i was thirty-one
after everything i could imagine had gone wrong
i moved in with her and four of her friends
i doubt i'll ever feel that safe again

looking back now i can see in my selective retrospect
that it all came so easily so now i haven't got a clue
how did i get so far away from you
it was the last thing that i ever thought i'd do

running scared can become a way of life
when noone is around there's noone left to fight
but the photograph that i couldn't leave behind
has come to haunt me nearly all the time

heard from my sister just the other day
said she saw you on the street and you were looking great
now you’re with martha and things are going well
but fannie there are things i know i'll never make right
the trip to the beach that i promised that night
the truth is i just don't know how to turn myself around
our child would have been four now

looking back now i can see in my selective retrospect
that it all came so easily so now i haven't got a clue
how did i get so far away from you
it was the last thing that i ever thought i'd do

Right Through Our Hands

Written By: Will Thompson

you called it green i called it blue
there was nothing i say or do
to make you change your mind love
is an order of the tallest kind
the kansas state fair teenage hay ride
was the best day of my life
my mind was so clean your eyes so true
you whispered "someday i'm gonna marry you"

and now i look back wondering at all the time that's flown away
forever slipped right through our hands

if i was a few years older at the time
maybe it'd've turned out right
but i need to drop fixations
coulda-woulda-shouldas keep me up all night
the ruins of the mill the river so smooth
and your face glowing by the moon
the cassette switched sides so many times
and dawn still broke much too soon

and now i look back wondering at all the time that's flown away
forever slipped right through our hands

twenty years gone and still there's no home
seems like my whole life's on loan
so few chances taken
too many opportunities blown
but still i've got a feeling
tomorrow may bring me something new
a turn taken unintended
could lead me straight back right to you

and now i look back wondering at all the time that's flown away
forever slipped right through our hands

Half Pint

Written By: Will Thompson

lying on the floor
wording out for an invitation
waiting for an unexpected guest
looking down the stairs
echoes of an altercation
perspiration hanging in the air

when you feel alone come to me
when you feel alone run to me

through the curtain's lace
past the dripping condensation
shadows burn their pipes
out in the park
staring at the clock
one bus every ninety minutes
wondering just why anyone gets off

when you feel alone come to me
when you feel alone run to me

forehead to the wall
fingers trace the cracking plaster
trying to discern a laugh or cry
damp upon the sheets
savoring every oscillation
grinning as my mind plays tricks on me

when you feel alone come to me
when you feel alone run to me
