So Far Away - David Gilmour

What am I suspended here?
Should I kid myself that I have no fear?
I get no choice, I just have to wait
It may already be too late
I don't know what's going on
She is here, but I am gone
I am gone

My love is lying here
She's far away though she looks so near
"Time will tell" she says to me
When a warm coat is all I need
Her peace of mind, her strentgh of will
It will come she's sure it will
And how can I put my mind at rest?
I feel I'm coming up second best

And I'm caught with my own life
Is this a dream, or is it real life?
Oooh sleep, come on me soon
I can't bear this lonely room
Look at that hand lying there
The room is dark she shows no fear
I'm lying still, my eyes are wide
My heart is pumping, I'm still alive
I'm still awake against my will
What will it ever take
To still this burning in me?

And I'm caught with my own life
Is this a dream, or is it real life?
Ooooh, sleep, come on me soon
I can't bear this lonely room
Sleep, come on me soon
I can't bear this lonely room
Sleep, don't take too long
Can't keep singing this lonely song
