Far and Away

lyrics

Caught in the mess around
Taking love on the side
Slip once and you pay for the rest of your life

Fortunes are up and down
My fate stays the same
Every night I get shuffled back into the deck

Far and away
That's where I stay
I'm iron in the fire
Just as old as the flame

My friends have all say
"You know what you ought to do
You ought to get a wife
Who can save what's left of you..."
Shake their heads and say
"How the hell do you do it, man? 
You're paying full price for a girl who ain't ever gonna be your girl."

It's hard when you're not around
And I call and complain
Two words in the bit part I play in your life

But I might as well stick around
Sunk costs either way
So drunk when I stumble back into your light

Far and away
That's where I stay
I'm iron in the fire
Just as old as the flame

My friends have all say
"You know what you ought to do
You ought to get a wife
Who can save what's left of you..."
Shake their heads and say
"How the hell do you do it, man? 
You're paying full price for a girl that you know is gonna cut you...

Cut you loose."

Every night I get shuffled back
Every night I get shuffled back
Every night I get shuffled back into the deck
