As Far

from Yes Boss by Graham Smith & KGW



From the genre known as "slow jam."


Glad to hear you're still alright
It's been a long time, and I'd been up all
Night last time I saw you
I can't remember a thing

A couple key phrases stick out
Something about how you're working with kids now
You told me to call you
When I'd had more or less to drink

And I can only imagine I meant what I said
But I probably shot off something clever instead of
My inchoate thoughts as I tremored with dread
Picturing your pink hands as they severed my head

Oh I don't know what had me thinking like that
I must have dozed off for a sec
But then two or three sentences bring me right back
And I feel the garrote on my neck

So let's you and I just stay as far apart as possible
Don't even try to make it up to me tonight
I wouldn't lie and say I think I know who's responsible
Honey, as far as I'm concerned, you can decide

Had my last nightmare last night
We lived in a house that was nothing but vast wide
Chasms & ballrooms
Larger than they first appeared

There was something I had to tell you
I saw you across a football-field sized bedroom
I tried to call you
But if you answered me, I couldn't hear

Now I'm no psychoanalyst, but it seems plain
It's not about space or a need to evade
Anyone who gets close or to hide in the shade
It's practically literal, and I am afraid

Because it's just too easy to stay disconnected
Which may be the best thing for both of us
Cause in concert, we're purely electric
And one of these days it will blow us up

So let's you and I just stay as far apart as possible
We both know why, even if saying it is tough
But they don't do justice, they only assist when when the casework is logical
And as far as I'm concerned, it's not far enough
