All the things I tried to tell you
On the day I went away
Do I always have to leave
For you to want me here to stay?

Couldn't you just tell me, you'll miss me
All those things we never say
And I saw you sit there smiling
As my plane just flew away

So far so good, so far I would
So far so good, so far I would

All the things I tried to write you
From so very far away
Never had the time to tell you
Reasons why I run away

If I was with you tomorrow
Would you still feel far away
When I look and I can't find you
Feels like you have gone away

So far so good, so far I would
So far so good, so far I would

Please remember, please remember me
Please remember, please remember me

So far so good, so far I would
So far so good, so far I would

All the things I tried to tell you
On the day I went away
Do I always have to leave
For you to want me here to stay

Couldn't you just tell me, you'll miss me
All those things we never say
I remember what it's like there
Towns that drive me far away
