n. The state of being in a long-distance relationship with another person over the Atlantic Ocean, for example, with one participant living in the United States and the other living in the United Kingdom, along with the emotions that accompany such a state, such as the desire of physical intimacy, melancholy and hope.
The Atlantic was born today, and I'll tell you how
The clouds above opened up and let it out.
I was standing on the surface of a perforated sphere
When the water filled every hole,
And thousands upon thousands made an ocean,
Making islands where no island should go.
Most people were overjoyed; they took to their boats
I thought it less like a lake and more like a moat.
The rhythm of my footsteps crossing flood lands to your door
Have been silenced forever more,
The distance is quite simply much too far for me to row
It seems farther than ever before.
I need you so much closer.
