Near/Far
Death Cab for Cutie Lyrics


You flicker like a fluorescent light
An intermittent strobe in a lonely night
As I am standing by your side
Trying to breach this dark and deep divide

You're here
So far away
So near
So far
I hear you talking to yourself
Cursing every card you wanted dealt
I can't help you play your hand
If you mistake every word for a command

You're here
So far away
So near
So far away

You're here
So far away
So near
So far away
Far away

You flicker like a fluorescent light
An intermittent strobe in a lonely night
But I won't watch you burning out
I won't let you be the one I live without

You're here
So far away
So near
So far away

You're here
So far away
So near
So far away
Far away
Far away

I won't let you be the one I live without

You're here
