So Far Away by Dire Straits.

How do you deal with being far away from someone you love? How do you handle a long distance relationship? Over 3,000 miles away, in a different country, separated by an ocean. And what if that person was going to be in the US, with a layover flight just five hours away and you couldn’t be there? How do you not cry? I would really love to know the answer but there isn’t one…

So Far Away was released as a single in April of 1986 from the band’s fifth studio album, Brothers in Arms. It spent 14 weeks on the chart making #19 on the Hot 100 and #6 on Adult Contemporary. It also made the top 10 in Sweden, Switzerland, and Norway.

And I get so tired when I have to explain
When you’re so far away from me
See you’ve been in the sun and I’ve been in the rain
And you’re so far away from me…
