It's a world of indecision

So self destructive

And such an ugly business

In and out of fashion

You always leave your mark

An indefinite decision

A dangerous remark

** When you're cold and tired

Don't turn your head away

The distance that's between us

Gets bigger every day

* How come you never see

You're as faraway as faraway can be

You're as faraway as faraway can be

You try so hard to impress

You talk the telephone to death

It's what you can't see that counts

But you haven't worked that out yet

There is no reason

There is no plan

The truth can be deceptive

From such a quiet man

There's madness in your words

Not wishing to be heard

But just like yesterday

You've already slipped away

(* repeat)

(** repeat)

(* repeat)

You're as faraway as faraway

As faraway as faraway

As faraway as faraway

As faraway as faraway

As faraway as faraway

As faraway from me as you can be
