For you dear I was born
For you I was raised up
For you I've lived and for you I will die
For you I am dying now

You were my mad little lover
In a world where everybody fucks everybody else over
You are so far from me so far from me
Way across some cold neurotic sea, far from me

I talk to you of all matter of things
With a smile you would reply
And then the sun will leave your pretty face
And you'd retreat from the front of your eyes

I keep hearing that you're doing your best
I hope your heart beats happy in your infant breast
You are so far from me
Far from me far from me

There is no knowledge but I know it
There's nothing to learn from that vacant voice
That sails to me across the line
From the ridiculous to the sublime

It's good to hear you're doing so well
But really can't you find somebody else
That you can ring and tell, did you ever care for me?
Were you ever there for me? So far from me

You told me you'd stick by me
Through the thick and through the thin
Those were your very words
My fair weather friend

You were my brave hearted lover
At the first taste of trouble went runnin' back to mother
So far from me far from me
Suspended in your bleak and fishless sea
Far from me far from me

Cave Nick (au)
