lyrics for 'far away'

the night had not overtaken us
waiting on the stars
we were only looking for a ride
among the passing cars

in our spare time we discovered
a room and hot supper
i racked my saddle and tucked my provision
in a corner above the stall
hoping they wouldn't find it cause there wasn't much at all

on a long cold trip
weathers warmer than usual
its hard to predict
what you were looking for
that i could not help you find

through the open air
wishing i could have landed there
scanning unfamiliar ground
looking for a place to lay
without losing sight of
that its never far away


released October 4, 2010
recorded in Edward Tyler Morgan's new bathroom on his iPhone
