Lyrics: You’re So Far Away (Allie)

There’s a girl been on my mind, keeps me all preoccupied
Serve it up, I’ll take it straight, Allie, Allie
Drink it down from above, looks and smells and quacks like love
Fits me like a Mike Schmidt glove, left under my bed.

Faces in the shadows, echoes in the hall
Dreaming of just you Allie, staring at my walls
Wishing you were near me, wishing I could stay
Allie, you’re so far away

Stepped into my empty room, came inside but left too soon
Wrote her name upon my brain, Allie, Allie
Words I think but dare not say, put my love on rain delay
Made me freak like crème brulee, left out in the sun

Faces in the shadows, echoes in the hall
Dreaming of just you Allie, staring at my walls
Praying you could feel all that I know today
Allie, youre so far away.

All that she had I’d give her more, I’ve never felt this weak before
Starfish spread out on the floor, Allie, Allie
If only we could see this through, there’s not a thing I wouldn’t do
I’d disavow the Clash and Who, bone up on some stank like Rent

Faces in the shadows, echoes in the hall
Dreaming of just you Allie, staring at my walls
Knowing that you’re out there but I’m resigned to say
Allie, yo’re so far away.

But I would eat through glass, I would not be afraid
To break through this wall and shout, (Hey Koolaid!)
I’d be your endless remedy, if only you would answer me
Oh please, I’m just no good at this, I had you at my fingertips
I read the signs but came to play, Allie you’re so far away
