    And David leads with one of his “message” songs. Definitely not surprised. I love it; it’s very encouraging and heart-warming. We all need that hand, shoulder, that human touch sometimes. Is this ♪song♪ a precursor of your intended direction, I wonder….. ♥

    Fingers, toes,and eyes crossed that”If I Could Only Be” is on “No Matter How Far”. I would love for “Senseless” to be on it also. Almost forgot about “Not A Very Good Liar”. Do we have any idea how many songs are gonna be on the album yet?

  11. Martha /

    I remember David saying he hoped it would make his album back then. Saw one video of him singing it.

  12. iamflying /

    I hope “If I could only be” will be on the album. Do you remember that song? It’s a great one.

    Just want to add I love that photo on E1’s “Don’t Run Away” Youtube – must be more fine work of photographer Matt Clayton, our favorite David photographer. I love the rolled up suit sleeves and thoughtful pose :) I think David did the photo shoots about one week before the start of his mission so he did have a lot on his mind.

  15. Martha /

    Wow, we even get it on youtube before it’s released on iTunes? That’s great! I love this song and can’t wait for the album in March. My pre-order’s are in. David’s voice is the only one that stops me in my tracks whenever I hear it. He is an amazing artist!

  18. Very excited to have this new album of David. Surely, another “Pure” listening pleasure. Thank you so much for his Team in making this gift to all his fans possible.

  19. DorkAngel-GBW /

    I forgot to mention how much I LOVE the strings at the end. Simply beautiful, yeah!

  20. DorkAngel-GBW /

    This is the kind of song you play over and over and over. Speakers on BLAST and you’re SINGING ALONG at the TOP OF YOUR LUNGS!!! And somewhere in the back of your mind you hope the neighbors can feel what you’re feeling.

  21. Oh, and I pre-ordered 2 cds from amazon.com Can’t wait to listen to the entire album!!!!

  30. violet4ever /

    It’s a great song and perfect for AC radio. Stuck in my head already :) I preordered the album No Matter How Far at Amazon and WOWHD also has it. It’s a bit more at WOWHD but they ship to a good sized list of countries and their shipping is free (slow sometimes, but free).

  31. Listening to this new single is like hearing Crush for the first time! It’s so excting! I absolutely love this song!!! “I will be right here don’t run away…” I’ll be here #DA2014!!! Hearing David’s voice just soar throughout the song is just beautiful and breathtaking!! He is truly the best and I hope he feels our excitement all the way to Chile! Thank you to David, Kari and team Archuleta for taking care of the fans while he is away. I am grateful for all if it!!! 
