The Distance by Oliver James

21 0 0

The sky has lost it's color

The sun has turned to grey

At least that's how it feels to me

Whenever you're away

I crawl up in the corner

As I watch the minutes pass

Each one brings me closer to

The time you're comin' back

I can't take the distance

I can't take the miles

I can't take the time until I next see you smile

I can't take the distance

And I'm not ashamed

That with every breath I take I'm callin your name

But I can't take the distance

I still believe my feelings

But sometimes I feel too much

I make believe you're close to me

But it ain't close enough

Not nearly close enough

I can't take the distance

I can't take the miles

I can't take the time until I next see you smile

I can't take the distance

And I'm not ashamed

That with every breath I take I'm callin your name

I brave fire and I brave rain

To be by your side I'd do anything

I can't take the distance

I will go the distance

I will go the miles

That's how much you mean to me

'Cause I can't take the distance

I can't take these miles

I can't take the time until I next see you smile

I can't take the distance

And I'm not ashamed

That with every breath I take I'm calling your name

I can't take the distance

It's hard to remember

As long as you're away

When I find solace

There's only one way
