Far From Me

As the cafe was closing
On a warm summer night
And Cathy was cleaning the spoons
The radio played the hit parade
And I hummed along with the tune
She asked me to change the station
Said the song just drove her insane
But it wasn’t just the music playing
It was me that she was trying to blame…

And the sky is black and still now
On the hill where the angels sing
Ain’t it funny how an old broken bottle
Looks just like a diamond ring
But it’s far, far from me…

*****

Well, I leaned on my left leg
In the parking lot dirt
And Cathy was closing the lights
A June bug flew from the warmth he once knew
And I wished for once I weren’t right
Why we used to laugh together
And we’d dance to any old song
Well, ya know, she still laughs with me
But she waits just a second to long…

And the sky is black and still now
On the hill where the angels sing
Ain’t it funny how an old broken bottle
Looks just like a diamond ring
But it’s far, far from me…

*****

Well, I started the engine
And I gave it some gas
And Cathy was closing her purse
Well, we hadn’t gone far in my beat old car
And I was prepared for the worst.
“Will you still see me tomorrow?”
“No, I got too much to do”
Well, a question ain’t really a question
If you know the answer too…

And the sky is black and still now
On the hill where the angels sing
Ain’t it funny how an old broken bottle
Looks just like a diamond ring
But it’s far, far from me…

As the cafe was closing

On a warm summer night

And cathy was cleaning the spoons

The radio played the hit parade

And I hummed a long with the tune

She asked me to change the station

Said the song just drove her insane

But it werent just the music playing

It was me that she was trying to blame.

And the sky is black and still now

On the hill where the angels sing

Aint it funny how an old broken bottle

Looks just like a diamond ring

But its far, far from me

Well I leaned on my left leg

In the parking lot dirt

And cathy was closing the lights

A june bug flew from the warmth he once knew

And I wished for once I werent right

Why we used to laugh together

And wed dance to any old song.

Well ya know she still laughs with me

But she waits just a second to long.

Repeat chorus

Well I started the engine

And I gave it some gas

And cathy was closing her purse

Well we hadnt gone far in my beat up old car

And I was prepared for the worst.

Will you still see me tomorrow?

No I got too much to do.

Well a question aint really a question

If you know the answer too.
