Far far away - Slade

1. Strophe

I've seen the yellow lights go down the Missisippi,

I've seen the bridges of the world and they're for real.

I've had a red light of the wrist without me even getting kissed,

It still seems so unreal.

 

2. Strophe

I've seen the morning in the mountains of Alaska,

I've seen the sunset in the east and in the west.

I've sang the glory that was Rome,

and passed the hound dog singer's home,

it still seeems for the best.

 

1. Refrain

And I'm far, far away with my head up in the clouds.

And I'm far, far away with my feet down in the crowds.

Letting loose around the world but the call of home is loud,

still as loud.

 

3. Strophe

I've seen the Paris lights from high upon Montmartre,

and felt the silence hanging low in no mans land.

And all those spanish nights were fine,  

it wasn't only from the wine it still seems all in hand.

 

2. Refrain

And I'm far, far away with my head up in the clouds.

And I'm far, far away with my feet down in the crowds.

Letting loose around the world but the call of home is loud,

still as loud.

 

4. Strophe

I've seen the yellow lights go down the Missisippi,

the grand Bahama island stories carry on.

And though those aligator smiles stay in your memory for a while

there still seems more to come.

 

3. Refrain

And I'm far, far away with my head up in the clouds.

And I'm far, far away with my feet down in the crowds.

Letting loose around the world but the call of home is loud,

still as loud.

 

And I'm far, far away with my head up in the clouds.

And I'm far, far away with my feet down in the crowds.

Letting loose around the world but the call of home is loud,

 

still as loud.
