Song of the Day: Far Away by Jose Gonzalez

It fits perfectly after a long day of travel.

Far Away is a song by Jose Gonzalez a Swedish indie folk singer-songwriter and guitarist from Gothenburg, Sweden. González is also a member of the Swedish band Junip, along with Tobias Winterkorn.

Lyrics:

Step infront of a runaway train just to feel alive again.
Pushing forward through the night, aching just to blow aside.

It’s so far, so far away.
It’s so far, so far away.

Cold wind blows into the skin.
Can’t believe the state you’re in.

It’s so far, so far away.
It’s so far, so far away.

Who are you trying to impress, steadily creating a mess?

Step in front of a runaway train, just to feel alive again.
Pushing forward through the night, aching just blow aside.

Aching just to blow aside, aching just to blow aside…

Step in front of a runaway train, just to feel alive again.
Pushing forward through the night, aching just blow aside.

Aching just to blow aside, aching just to blow aside…

……

González performed his original song “Far Away” at the Spike Video Game Awards, where it won “Best Song” for its featured appearance in Rockstar Games’ video game Red Dead Redemption, which also took home the award for “Game of the Year”.
