Ólafur Arnalds - So Far ft. Arnor Dan

"So Far" was the end credits song composed for Broadchurch Series 2 by Ólafur Arnalds and sung by Arnór Dan. The title was chosen to be in contrast with the credits song from the previous series, "So Close", symbolising not only the continuity between the episodes but also the fact that, despite working towards the conclusion in the previous series, now the series is moving away from that conclusion. So far away.


So far from who I was.
From who I love.
From who I want to be.

So far from all our dreams.
From all our means.
From you here next to me.

So far from seeing hope.
I stand out here alone.
Am I asking for too much?

So far from being free.
Of the past that's haunting me.
The future I just can't touch.

And if you take my hand,
Please pull me from the dark
And show me hope again.

We'll run side by side.
No secrets left to hide.
Sheltered from the pain.
