           so    far    from    me



                       ADDITIONAL LYRICS


  [verse 2]
  Does it now seem worth all the color of skies
  To see the earth through painted eyes
  To look through panes of shaded glass
  See the stains of winter's grass  (refrain)

  [verse 3]
  Can you now return to from where you came
  Try to burn your changing name
  Or with silver spoons and colored light
  Will you worship moons in winter's night  (refrain)



   The toughest thing about learning this song is in making it sound
   fluid all the way through, but once mastered, it is a great addition
   to one's repertoire. A smooth transition from end of refrain back to
   into takes a bit of work too, but it's more a matter of timing than
   difficult fingerings, etc. If anyone has corrections, additions, or
   comment, by all means let me know.  E.H.
