Far Cry

This song is by Icon and appears on the album Right Between The Eyes (1989).

He was born in New York
On a subway train
Raised up in poverty
Hell, don't even have a name

He looks up while he's singing for a quarter
At the girl in a limousine
Reaching out just to touch her
She looks down laughing at him

Waiting, waiting every morning
Hoping things are going to change
He can hear her say

All that I've got, all that you're not
Such a far cry from love
All that I see, always you'll be
Such a far cry from love, oh...

Rich man makes him an offer
Perfect way to a poor boy's dream
You want the girl, you want the power
Here's a way to be just like me

Sell this crack from off the corner
Fate is waiting here for you, then he says

All that I've got, all that you're not
Such a far cry from love
All that I see, always you'll be
Such a far cry from love
Open your eyes don't you realize
You're a far cry from love

So impressed with the name you're making
See the neon shine
Now she's shooting up the love she's faking
Don't you know it's not too late to change your life

Oh...
Mmm...

All that you've got, baby, you're not
Such a far cry from love
All that you've seen, never you'll be
Such a far cry from love
Take your best shot, know that you're not
Such a far cry from love
Take it from me, baby, I've been
Such a far cry from love, from love

Far, far cry from love
Come on
