About the song, she comments:
‘So Far Away’ is about a complicated, obsessive, unrequited love relationship that literally almost ate me alive. At one point in my life, I was desperate to find love and encountered someone who seemed ambiguous and ‘so far away’ in his feelings towards me, and that person turned out to be a wrong one at the end. It’s that pivotal moment when you realize that your feelings are unreciprocated, but you’re still hoping for that balanced and healthy relationship. It’s a poisonous illusion of reciprocity of some sort that you’re allowing yourself to be part of; you’re literally trying so hard to get close with that person, constantly hoping for something great in return, but as a result you end up suffering from an emotional pain, shame, humiliation and you realize that it’s not going anywhere at all. It leaves you in a despair and you start to perceive yourself to be a fool. That’s what happened to me. It’s like you’re falling down, and you kind of know that he’s not going to catch you because he’s so far away; or you’re drowning and there’s no one else to rescue you, and most likely you’re going to die.
