Baby I’ve been so far away


Baby I’ve been so far away
Lyrics and Music: THE RED
 
 
Baby I’ve been so far away
On the road with crazy songbirds
Russia, Texas and to Norway
Kyrgyzstan and other words
On the mountains, in the prairies
Resting lonely in far cities
Abandoning home and fire
For some cold and sometimes dire
Straits or passes somewhere here
Who could have said, prophet, seer?
 
You did not know, I did not know
Would be that way, that road, that show
Baby but! In any place
Any corner of the earth
First thought of the rising morning
Last thought of the dying evening
You and you and always you
Baby I’m in love with you
 
Baby far away from homeland
Days and nights on roads and valleys
Tennessee to Netherlands
Spanish lanes and Italy’s
Riding horses crossing Asia
Drinking wine in Transcaucasia
Haunting gangs in downtown LA
Name it, Baby, I’ll be midway
Be it heartland of Africa
Or the middle of Moldova
 
You did not know, I did not know
Would be that way, that road, that show
Baby but! In any place
Any corner of the earth
First thought of the rising morning
Last thought of the dying evening
You and you and always you
Baby I’m in love with you
 
Baby in the deepest black
Of your lovely silken tresses
I the spirit going backtrack
Drown myself with love He blesses
In the deep of pupils of yours
See the ocean full of joy
And with beauty fills the moors
Sweet and love that never cloy
See your face and feel your heat
I can hear your heart and beat
 
You did not know, I did not know
Would be that way, that road, that show
Baby but! In any place
Any corner of the earth
First thought of the rising morning
Last thought of the dying evening
You and you and always you
Baby I’m in love with you
