Far Away
"Far Away"

He?s sitting in the corner
Of a cold dark prison cell
With noone to confide in
Just four damp concrete walls

He?s thinking there?s no reason
To keep living one more day
No hope for him, he?s thinking
He can?t see another way

Then a Light shone in the darkness
Like none he?d ever seen
He saw an angel coming
To take him far away

He thought the end was coming
When the angel spoke his name
He cried and asked forgiveness
But the angel said ?come with me?

He took him to his mansion
And showed him his rewards
He could hear the angels singing
He could see the shining throne


And now he?s back in prison
Amazed at what he?d seen
He looked into the darkness
It must have been a dream

The cell door locks were opened
The guard said, ?on your feet?
They found the man who did it
And they?re going to set you free
