Far As You Can See
(Rick Albert, Christine Albert, Chris Gage)
Sutters Gold Music (BMI) / Golly Gee Music (ASCAP)

from the CD Albert and Gage - Cry Love  (MoonHouse Records)

Read it in a paperback book
All about how things should look
They don't look that way to me
All I seem to feel is fear
What I want is to keep you near
But it's time to set you free

      All the way from China
      Far as you can see
      Darlin now I'm behind ya
      Are you behind me

When you were a little boy
You kicked your heels and you jumped for joy
Feels like only yesterday
In the blink of a mother's eye

The birthdays go flying by
Now you're moving away

      All the way from China
      Far as you can see
      Darlin now I'm behind ya
      Are you behind me 

I'll think about you everyday
Even though you're far away
There's no need to feel alone
You know that I'll be standing here
At the end of a distant pier
You can always come back home
