The Lyrics

A tribute to everyone who has got out of bed in the morning and been unable to see their glasses, never mind find them.
I'm tired of having eye tests that I cannot see
They're just too far away from me
And where are you now you've moved around?
You're much too far away from me

You're too far away from me
You know that I can't quite see
You're too far away from me
It's too far away for me
It is

I'm fed up - I can't focus first thing in the morn
When my specs are away from me
I'm tired of stabbing blindly at the telephone
It's just too far away from me

Things too far away from me
They don't know I can't quite see
It's all far away to me
It's too far away to me
It is

I'm really mad - I failed my driving test
Number plate's far away from me
It's hazy in the sun and all grey in the rain
Things are so far away from me

My glasses away from me
Frustrated - I can't quite see
Bring them right back to me
Bring them back here to me
Bring them here

Too far away
It's all far away to me
(It's too far)
It is.
(It's too far)
It's all too far away to me
