Can It Be I Stayed Away Too Long?
Did I Leave Your Mind When I Was Gone?
Now that you are so far away…
…i notice time after time just how much i miss you. It’s not only the little things anymore. Home is wherever you are becomes such an obvious statement. The most beautiful song ever written about missing your love from a distance as a wonderful cover version. The Roots feat. Erykah Badu – I Wanna Be Where You Are is possibly the best Jackson 5 cover i know, and like any attempt of covering the Jacksons pales in comparison, but has a unique playful beauty of its own with its 70s sounding instrumentation, that compels me to move. A wonderful tune and one of those drift off to foreign places kind of songs where minds, hearts and souls connect across the vastness of oceans and continents. I wanna be where you are.
