So Far Away by Carole King is featured in Jagged Little Tapestry, the third episode of Season Six. It is sung by Quinn and Tina.

Quinn, Tina, and Becky plan to sing this song in front of her boyfriend, Darrell, to cover for Becky's lie that she was in glee club. Becky is nervous but Tina says to just "burst in like Mercedes". Quinn and Tina sing in front of everyone in the choir room which includes Sue and Darrell, and encourage Becky to join in, but she runs out of the choir room. Quinn, Tina, Santana, and Brittany chase after her. Sue blames the whole situation on Quinn and Tina's "pitchy" singing and angrily stares at Darrel, making him uncomfortable. In the astronomy room, the girls comfort Becky, and tell their own situations where they've had to lie before. Becky thanks them for their support and they all hug.

Lyrics

Quinn:
So far away
Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
Doesn't help to know

Tina (and Quinn):
You're just time away
Long ago I reached for you and there you stood
Holding you again could only (do me good)

How I wish I could
But you're (so far away)

Quinn and Tina:
One more song about moving along the highway
I can't say much of anything that's new

Tina with Quinn:
If I could only work this life out my way

Quinn and Tina:
I'd rather spend it being close to you

Quinn and Tina (Quinn):
(But you're so) far away
Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore
It would be so fine to see your face at my door

Quinn:
And it doesn't help to know

Quinn and Tina:
You're so far away

Tina:
Yeah, you're so far away

Quinn:
So far away

Tina (Quinn):
Traveling around sure gets me down and lonely
(Traveling around sure gets me down and lonely)

Tina:
Nothing else to do but

Quinn and Tina:
Close my mind
I sure hope the road don't come to own me

Tina (Quinn):
There are so many dreams (There are so many dreams)
I've yet to find (I've yet to find)

Tina:
But you're so far away

Quinn and Tina (Quinn):
Doesn't anybody stay in one place (anymore) (Tina: Anymore)
(It would be) so fine to see your face at my door

Quinn (and Tina):
And it doesn't help to know (you're so far away)
Yeah, (you're so far away)

Tina (Quinn):
Oooh (Yeah)

Quinn and Tina:
You're so far
