about

Michael: "This is basically all live. Recorded by Alan (Foreman) at his practice studio where we did some basic tracks. I think aside from the bass (re-tracked on all B'klyn mixes) this exactly as first laid down..."

lyrics

Maybe a thing or two
More left to say to you
On the way to the Love that's True
But you're always so far away
Misstep right off the mark
Words better said in the dark
Still stuck in my throat and heart
Always so far away
Your turn
Think it over sometime
Let it burn
Way it always does mine
Lay me down on the dash of your car
And dream of the place I dreamt you are
Between an ice grey moon and the morning star
Always so far away
Walls begin to crumble
And the ground just falls away
No matter what they told you
No matter what they say
Walls begin to crumble
And the earth just falls away
By any measurement or standard
It's just a necessary weight
Lay me down on the dash of your car
And dream of the place I dreamt you are
Between a steel grey moon and the morning star
Always so far away
You're always so far away
Always so far away
So far away
Far away...
