Ingrid Michaelson Far Away Lyrics



I will live my life as a lobster man'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 bare three girls all with strawberry curls
Little Ella, and Nellie and Fay
While I'm combing their hair, i will catch his warm stare
On our island, in the blue bay
Far away, far away, i wanna go far away,
To a new life, on a new shoreline
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 past me, then i finally see
On this barstool i can't stay
So im taking my frown, to a far distant town
On an island, in the blue bay
Far away, far away, i wanna go far away
To a new life, on a new shoreline
Where the water is blue, and the people are new
To another island, in another life
I wanna go far away, away, away
I wanna go far away, away, away
I wanna go far
Away-ay-ayey-ay
Where the water is blue, and the people are new
To another life, to another life
To another shoreline, in another life
