Brent and Angelica Alford / James House

Nobody understands us but you and I
No way in the world they can
Just knowing you’re there makes everything alright
It’s just the way you hold my hand

Far away so far away
Wish you could stay
You’re so far away

We talked on the phone overnight for at least a month
Met on a cold Christmas Eve
You had hot chocolate we walked in the cold
Had coffee with cream

Far way you’re so far way
I wish you could stay
You’re so far away

Married on a fall October day
Marry me by train became our song
Seemed like the whole world disapproved
Only you and I know we’re strong

Far way you’re so far away
I wish you could stay
You’re so far away

Through the long winter nights
Through the wrongs and rights

Through the moments of flight we’ve stayed true
I can’t imagine being with anyone else
My heart belongs to you

Even when you’re far away
