​Perfect Far Away

This song is by The Bottle Rockets and appears on the album 24 Hours A Day (1997).

She ripped through this heart of mine like a weed eater with brand new line
There was no blood and no, there was no gore.
She cut me clean she cut me fine I knew she never could be mine
Still I had been changed forever more.
I wonder if she's real I really couldn't say
Well I don't want to know 'cause she's so perfect far away.
I won't see her again I bet but I I don't think I'll soon forget
The way she first said "Howdy" to my brain
Wish I could say she looked my way, she never did but that's OK
I looked at her and never was the same.
I wonder if she's real I really couldn't say
Well I don't want to know 'cause she's so perfect far away.
I could try to steal her, try to touch her, try to feel her
Yeah I could try to make her be my own
Thoughts like these I've got to quit hey I don't want to ruin it
I guess some dreams are better left alone.
