Tekst: So Far Away

So Far Away
For my son Yoran

It was on a cold afternoon
That I got the Blues
On a cold afternoon
I got the Blues
It was on my screen
That I read the bad news

I'll tell you about my son
So far away
Tell you about my son
Everyday
He's out there in the sun
But he just can't stay

I'll tell you about my son
So far away
I'll tell you about my son
He's just begun
He was left alone
Now he's on his own

I saw my kid crying
And I wasn't there
I saw my kid crying
In his despair
I saw my kid crying
It's so hard to bare

I'll tell you about my son
So far away
Tell you 'bout my son
Show him the way
He was left alone
Now he's coming home
