Farther I Go (Kenny Rogers)

I took a boat, I took a plane Halfway around the world on a train New York to Orleans, Japan to Tibet But the farther I go, the closer you get And I can’t get you out of my mind All these years to forget, all these miles in jet But the farther I go, the closer you get. I took some dreams, I can’t damp some dust I damned your name, I cried and I cursed I run to the ends of the earth to forget But the farther I go, the closer you get. I found a friend, I took her home I took her upstairs, disconnected the phone We got warmer and warmer Been blazing hot But the farther we went, the closer you got And I can even make love anymore. All these years to forget
