I've Been Away

This song is by Ron Sexsmith and Don Kerr and appears on the album Destination Unknown (2005).

Well, I've been all around the world
He thought to himself one morning
What have I to show for it? Where have I been?
He had a house on a quiet street, children at play
Now it hits him where he lives, I've been away
I've been away, my darlings, I've been away

He walks the streets of his home town
He couldn't find a soul around
He stepped into a tavern where his old bar had been
When a man inquired if he knew the score of the game
I couldn't help you, there my friend, I've been away
I've been away, I'm sorry, I've been away

There's a crescent moon upon the hill
All around is quiet and still
He walks along the service road as if in a dream
When a voice from somewhere cries, is everything okay?
Can I walk beside you now? I've been away
I've been away, my brother, I've been away
I've been away, my brother, I've been away
