Far Away Lyrics

If, again, you wander
If, too soon again, you wander
Far away, far away
Let this, too, be with you
An old tune somewhere within you
Far away, far awayFalling through the autumn evening
Every darkened street, calling to forgotten feeling
The passing ghosts and scattered leaves
If, again, you love him
If, too soon again, you love him
Far away, far away
Let this, too, be with him
Humming smoothly when you kiss him
Far away, far awayHaunting all the talk, and stalling
Every hope of sleep
Calling to some distant longing
Another soul within your sheets
If, some day, you love me

If, in truth, some day, you love me
Far away, far away
Let the words within you
Whisper to you how I miss you
Far away, far awayFor if, some day, I wander
Then, too soon, I too will wander
Far away, far away
Far away, far away, far away
Calling to your heart, and stealing
All the want away

Duncan Scott Sheik (born November 18, 1969) is an American singer-songwriter. Born in Montclair, New Jersey, Sheik's upbringing was split between his parents' home in South Carolina and that of his grandparents in New Jersey. His grandmother, a piano graduate of The Juilliard School, taught him to play the piano and encouraged his musical development. He graduated from Phillips Academy in 1988, after which he studied semiotics at Brown University.

Sheik began his professional musical career playing for other acts, including Liz And Liza (with Lisa Loeb and Liz Mitchell), and played on His Boy Elroy's 1993 album. Through connections from fellow Brown alum Tracee Ellis Ross, Sheik's music gained the attention of executives at Atlantic Records. Duncan Sheik's eponymous debut album for Atlantic spawned the 1996 hit single "Barely Breathing" in the US, which remained on the charts for 55 straight weeks. In 1998, he was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Barely Breathing."

In addition to his work as a solo artist, he collaborates with the poet and writer Steven Sater. Together, they have written an album of art-pop songs, ''Phantom Moon'', a Broadway musical, ''Spring Awakening'', and the score for the film ''A Home at the End of the World''. They are currently working on a new musical based on the story of "The Emperior and the Nightingale", which will have its workshop premiere in 2007 at the La Jolla Playhouse.

As of 2009, Whisper House is the sixth studio album recorded by Duncan Sheik, released in the United States on January. The album is Sheik's first for the RCA Victor label, as well as his first in the wake of success from composing music for the Tony award-winning musical Spring Awakening.
