“So far away
doesn’t anybody stay in one place anymore
it would be so fine to see your face at my door
doesn’t help to know you’re just time away

Long ago I reached for you and there you stood
holding you again could only do me good
oh, how I wish I could
but you’re so far away

One more song about moving along the highway
can’t say much of anything that’s new
if I could only work this life out my way
I’d rather spend it being close to you

But you’re so far away
doesn’t anybody stay in one place anymore
it would be so fine to see your face at my door
doesn’t help to know you’re so far away

Traveling around sure gets me down and lonely
nothing else to do but close my mind
I sure hope the road don’t come to own me
there’s so many dreams I’ve yet to find

But you’re so far away
doesn’t anybody stay in one place anymore
it would be so fine to see your face at my door
doesn’t help to know you’re so far away”.

Citazioni.

So Far Away is a song written by Carole King and appeared on her 1971 album Tapestry. The recording features James Taylor on acoustic guitar. The lyrics express longing for a lover who is far away. But Allmusic critic Bill Janovitz notes that while the lyrics start by focusing on the physical distance between the lovers, the lyrics use that as a jumping off point to explore emotional distance between lovers as well. Rolling Stone stated King’s “warm, earnest singing” on the song brought out the song’s sadness. In addition to Taylor, and King on piano, instruments include Russ Kunkel on drums, Charles Larkey on bass guitar and Curtis Amy on flute”.
