EVERYONE I'M CLOSE TO IS FAR AWAY

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


    I.  faces line the wall just like a mural.
        I'm in the dark, they're in the light.
        the sirens make me feel so rural.
        I am so ambient tonight.
             and everytime I have something to say,
             everyone I'm close to is far away.

   II.  think I'll go back home and write a letter.
        I'll check my answering machine.
        the traffic light could not be redder.
        everywhere I am is in-between.
             the stations all sign off, the anthems play.
             and everyone I'm close to is far away.

  III.  the B drive belches at the clicking mouse.
        the window blinks and I log on.
        I'm in my virtual clubhouse.
        the members live inside this small icon.
             I think that I'll be here 'til break of day
             'cause everyone I'm close to,
                    everyone I'm close to,
                    everyone I'm close to is far...
                       ... away.
