Song Lyrics - Always Away

He caught my eye as I walked in
I said
"No man, I don't need a paper"
"But I've got a great deal!
"You can't deliver where I live"
That's because
I'm all over town
All over town

She ran over as I walked on by
I said
"No it's best you don't send me that card"
"But I bought it special just for you!
"It can't be mailed to where I live"
That's because
I'm all over town
All over town

You see
I don't have a home
I just have some places to stay
You see
No matter where I go
I'm always away
Always away

He called while I was driving away
I said
"No son you can't visit me today"
"Why Dad? It would be great!"
"You can't visit where I live"
That's because
I'm all over town
All over town

Wandering alone in silence
I live life as an unwanted guest
Ignoring people and their questions
When will my heart finally rest?

You see
I don't have a home
I just have some places to stay
You see
No matter where I go
I'm always away
Always away

I'm no longer part of anyone's world
I'm just always away
I know things will get better
But probably not today
So it looks like I'll stay
Always away
Yeah
Always away
Always away

I find your song something to think about. It touches me because it reminds me of someone I know. Thank you. Very good!

Yesterday upon the stair I met a man who wasn't there...SP this is the first time I have read anything of yours and I enjoyed it very much. Sometimes I feel as if I am fading away while the world goes on without me. Where I go is the mystery--perhaps another dimension. "I think, therefore I am...gone missing." Cheers =:)

@Barbara - thank you for commenting. I hope your friend is handling the situation... sometimes we find ourselves in transition but we still have to live...

@Winsome - thank you... these quotes are true and I'm kind of living in a strange way right now... it's liberating at times yet there is a feeling of detachment that causes sadness at times... but chin up right?

Oh no, I thought you were so happy. I'm sorry. This is too sad.

Cheers
