Cyndi Lauper - The Faraway Nearby Lyrics

Out in the faraway nearby
Can your hear my call
Out in the faraway nearby
I'm breaking down the walls
Till you're here to stay
Out from the faraway

Hot looks, cold words,
Don't know what it is you heard
But I didn't mean it,
If I said something wrong
Short nights, long dreams
Something happens in between
Then a weird feeling,
Like you're here but still you're gone
...Oo, heart beats
Like a knock on the door
But it sounds so faraway

In the faraway nearby
Can your hear me call
Out in the faraway nearby
I'm breaking down the walls
Till you're here to stay
Out from the faraway

Big whisper, small scream
But it's not like what it seems
Locked up in the open
Don't know which way to go
Deserts, oceans
Leaving footprints in the sand
Hoping that you'll see them
And wishing you'd follow
...And walk with me hand in hand, ya-ha
And talk with me you got a plan, ah-ha
And hold me, and hold me
Don't stop...in the faraway nearby
Can you here me call
