Far and Away

If I could touch you, what would you do
smile or just fade from my eyes
If I could love you, what would you say
Sorry, I haven't the time
Far and away is the sound of your laughter
Your eyes are closed and my dream's a disaster
I turn away
Turn on your sunshine, shine on my face
light all the stars in the sky
Your words were careful, your manner was not
I masked the hurt in my eyes
Far and away is the sound of your whisper
Your body is warmth and my hands the receptors
I turned away
If you could touch me, what would I do
smile or just fade from your life
What were the reasons? What was the cause?
Where was the fire in the night?
Far and away is the sound of my sadness
Your eyes are closed and my dream's turned to madness
You turned away
