Oh Ingrid

FAR FAR AWAY


"I will live my life as a lobsterman's wife on an island in the blue bay

He will take care of me, he will smell like the sea,

And close to my heart he'll always stay

I will bear three girls all with strawberry curls, little Ella and

Nelly and Faye

While I'm combing their hair, I will catch his warm stare

On our island in the blue bay


Far away far away, I want to go far away

To a new life on a new shore line

Where the water is blue and the people are new

To another island, in another life


There's a boy next to me and he never will be anything but a boy at the bar

And I think he's the tops, he's where everything stops

How I love to love him from afar

When he walks right pass me then I finally see on this bar stool I can't stay

So I'm taking my frown to a far distant town

On an island in the blue bay.

Far away far away, I want to go far away

To a new life on a new shore line

Where the water is blue and the people are new

To another island, in another life

I want to go far away

Away away, I want to go far away, away, away

I want to go far away, far away

Where the water is blue and the people are new

To another life, to another life

To another shoreline, in another life..."


If you haven't invited Ingrid Michaelson into your world...later is better than never!
