Far Away

Written by

i will live my life as a lobsterman's wife on an island in the blue bay
he will take care of me, he will smell like the sea
and close to my heart he'll always stay

i will bear three girls all with strawberry curls, little ella and
nelly and faye
while i'm combing their hair, i will catch his warm stare
on our island in the blue bay

far away far away, i want to go far away
to a new life on a new shore line
where the water is blue and the people are new
to another island, in another life

there's a boy next to me and he never will be anything but a boy at the bar
and i think he's the tops, he's where everything stops
how i love to love him from afar

when he walks right pass me then i finally see on this bar stool i can't stay
so i'm taking my frown to a far distant town
on an island in the blue bay

far away far away, i want to go far away
to a new life on a new shore line
where the water is blue and the people are new
to another island, in another life

i want to go far away
away away, i want to go far away, away, away
i want to go far away, far away

where the water is blue and the people are new
to another life, to another life
to another shore line
in another life
