Just out of Reach
Solomon Burke Lyrics

A love that runs away from me
Dreams that just won't let me be
Blues that keeps on bothering me
Chains that just won't set me free
So far away from you and all your charm
Just out of reach of my two empty arms

Each night in dreams I see your face
Memories and time cannot erase
Then I awake and find you're gone
Then I'm so blue and all alone
So far away from you so sweet and warm
Just out of reach of my two empty arms

That lonesome feeling all the time
Knowing you could not be mine
Dreams that hurt me in my sleep
Vows that we could never keep

So far away from you and all your charm
Just out of reach of my two empty arms, Empty arms

No one could sing this song with such deep soulful feelings like the king Mr. Solomon Burke. What an amazing voice. You came, you did your thing and left us a great legacy of timeless music sung with deep soulful feelings, amazing grace, deep down heart felt passion and mind altering earth shattering glory. Sing on my brother.


My last year of High School. What a song...what memories....what a life. And here I am, closing in on 80 years of age. And they said I'd never make 21. Surprised 'em all....not the least among them...myself.

One of my all time favorites,still is & I’m 78 years old. Had the supreme pleasure of seeing him perform at the Macon City Auditorium @ 1962. He brought the house down!
