A Far Cry From Here

 

I've heard misfortune losses

And wasted ways before me by the costs

Of givin' someone time enough for spendin'

Love only borrowed

 

I've placed myself at ease

Listenin' to the lies of self-belief

For wantin' somethin' close enough for keepin'

A far cry from here

 

            But I believe in ways than these

            To speak another dear who has been spared

            Innocent so near

            A far cry from here

 

Even still the night is passin'

Behind her heart an emptiness still follows

The distance dams the swallows hard for lendin'

Love only borrowed

 

(Chorus)                                           

           

Some are sad but true to know

There's belongin' in just longin' for someone

My shoulder rests a road I only follow

Love only borrowed

 

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

 

A far cry from here

A far cry from here...
