Farther Stars
written by John Hiatt

Friends of mine they don't hear
Clocks ticking all around their ears
They don't expect a thing
Bridges moving while the river sings

[Chorus]
Long lost love
Where do we go from here
Farther stars
Different atmospheres

The river sings us back from the time
Drawn to heaven with a voice so fine
Final joys final cries
On and off like starlight in her eyes

[Chorus]

You know your poetry kept me up all night
Like you I didn't have the heart to die
Still so many things left to say

Long lost love
Where do we go from here
Death's the truth and death's a lie
Love is your only alibis

Mary you'll forget this soon
Where we were and when we sang this tune

[Chorus]

Long lost love
