​So Far Away

This song is by David Gilmour and appears on the album David Gilmour (1978).

Original video
Why am I suspended here?
Should I kid myself that I have no fear?
I get no choice, I just have to wait
It may already be too late

I don't know what's going on
She is here, but I am gone
I am gone

My love is lying here
She's far away though she looks so near
"Time will tell," she says to me
When a warm coat is all I need

Her peace of mind, her strength of will
It will come, she's sure it will
But how can I put my mind at rest?
I feel I'm coming off second best

And I'm cut with my own knife
Is this a dream or is it real life?
Oh, sleep, come o'er me soon
I can't bear this lonely room

Look at that head lying there
The room is dark, she shows no fear
I'm lying still, my eyes are wide
My heart is pumping, I'm still alive

I'm still awake against my will
What will it ever take to still
This burning in me?

And I'm cut with my own knife
Is this a dream or is it real life?
Oh, sleep, come o'er me soon
I can't bear this lonely room

Sleep, come o'er me soon
I can't bear this lonely room
Sleep, don't take too long
Can't keep singing this lonely song

Ooh, oh, oh, oh
Ooh, oh, ooh, ooh

Sleep, come o'er me soon
