Song facts

From Wide Prairie liner notes:

When we first met, I showed Linda some basic rudiments of keyboard playing and songwriting. She soon developed her abilities and this fine song not only shows her melodic skills but her strong sense of the value of love. The pedal steel guitar was played by Lloyd Green – one of Nashville’s finest.

Lyrics

Far away, a distant love affair
Grew into something that was gentle and sentimental
And now I know that love has found full glory
Closer now, your love has warmed a heart
That could have frozen in these cold days
Where love is laughed at
Until You came to show me love's full glory

First of all my sadness
Warmed in the sunshine
When you came to show me that love will never die
Now I'm not so lonely
You are here beside me
Giving me the confidence that you alone can show

Take me home

Now at last I found you
You are here beside me
Sharing in the happiness that you alone can give
Now I'm not so lonely
You are here beside me
Giving me the confidence that you alone can show

Take me home

Far away, a distant love affair
Grew into something that was gentle and sentimental
And now I know that love has found full glory
Closer now, your love has warmed a heart
That could have frozen in these cold days
Where love is laughed at...
