Levellers: Far Away

FAR AWAY
/Levellers/

And it will stop
'Cos there's never been a day
That lasts forever
Just as the sun sets
It will rise at dawn
Forever after
And I'm sorry if it ain't that sweet
Just living in the world you meet

But it will stop
'Cos there's never been a day
That lasts forever
Just as the sun sets
It will rise at dawn
Forever after
And I'm sorry if it ain't that sweet
Just living in the world you meet
But that should never stop you

[Chorus:]
Because far away is close at hand
There in the drifting sand
And far away is close at hand
In the imagination
Of every woman and every man

And I'm sorry if it ain't that cool
Just living in a world of fools
But that should never stop you

[Chorus]

But It will stop
All that you can see is there
To tell you
Rain must fall
For the sun to shine
There down on you
And I'm sorry it ain't that cool
Just living in a world of fools
But that should never stop you

Because far away is close at hand
There in the drifting sand
And far away is close at hand
There in the drifting sand
And far away is close at hand
In the imagination
Of every woman and every man
