Love From A Distance



Sometimes it seems 

All the people I love 

Are on the other end of the phone 

I know that they're there for me 

Whenever I need them 

Still I spend these nights alone 


It's love from a distance 

So close I can feel it 

But never near enough to hold 

Love from a distance 

Until I can come in from the cold 


Your comforting words 

And tender touch

Mean more to me than you know 

But it’s safer to stay a friend 

Than it is to let you in 

I'm so afraid of letting go 


But you dance in my dreams 

And live in my heart 

If only I could let you know 

Love from a distance 

Until I can come in from the cold 


And I don't think I 

Can spend another night alone

When will I 

Find the love that’s gonna bring me home


Love from a distance 

Until I can come in from the cold
