  1. Staying Away

From the recording Staying Away

Dedicated to all health workers world wide during the Covid-19 pandemic.
It's a song about how difficult it is to be isolated from all those we love.
lyrics

Lyrics

Now I wear my mask and plastic gloves
Like a snail, I’m stuck inside my house
Every bit of life and blood we had
Oozes out into the internet

But if I knew the end was near
I'd come to you--that much is clear.

But while things are status quo,
I'm behaving comme il faut.
That means I'm staying away.
I'm staying away.
I'm staying away.
So hard to stay away...

You don't live that far from where I live.
I could drive there in a minute if
I knew that I wouldn't make you sick,
If this plague didn't travel quite so quick.

But if I knew the end was near
I'd come to you--that much is clear.

But while things are status quo,
I'm behaving comme il faut.
That means I'm staying away.
I'm staying away.
I'm staying away.
So hard to stay away...

Our little world is folding in.
Borders are closed, and doors are locked.
Maybe the sickness lies within
No matter how well your house is stocked.

But if I knew the end was near
I'd come to you--that much is clear.

But while things are status quo,
I'm behaving comme il faut.
That means I'm staying away.
I'm staying away.
I'm staying away.
So hard to stay away...

I'm staying away.
Should I stay away?
Tell me should I stay?
I just can't stay away.
