the distance

there’s really no where I can be away from you
no place that is ever that far
when I think of everything that you’ve done
you’re even closer than you were at the start though I wish you were here standing at my side
so I could show you everything
the distance we’ve gone is what keeps you near
and always keeps you here deep inside me

the distance doesn’t mean a thing
the distance can’t keep us apart
and this dance makes your love clear
and the distance you’ve come in my heart

sometimes it feels like I’ve gone way too far
stepped just outside your reach
but just the sound of your voice when I call
shows me what none of the experts will teach

when you took me in, and you brought me inside
when you held me just that close
your welcome goes with me wherever I fly
and the hug of your heart let’s me know

the distance doesn’t mean a thing
the distance can’t keep us apart
and this dance makes your love clear
and the distance you’ve come in my heart
