  • "THE DISTANCE"
  • (Guy Thomas) 1984  This is an old demo I maybe should have titled "The Sentence."  If you know what I mean.


  • Baby I can still remember
  • It wasn't so long ago
  • We had just met and I was knocking on your door
  • Remember that feeling that we shared
  • And living in its wonder
  • We didn't feel the rain coming down
  • Didn't hear the thunder
  •  
  • More and more these days
  • We've forgotten where to go
  • Are we so far away
  • From that place we used to know
  •  
  • Darlin' the distance is killing me
  • Look at us now
  • Take me back to the dream
  • Take me back somehow
  • The distance is killing me
  • Just take my hand
  • Take me back to the dream
  • I know that you can
  • I know that you can
  •  
  • How could we come this far
  • And still not know where we are
  • How could we lose our faith
  • When we had so much to believe in
  • So we turn out the light in silence
  • The hurt building up so deep inside us
  • Seems I can't hardly remember when
  • You were close to me
  • So close to me
  •  
  • And I toss and turn
  • So angry and amazed
  • At how easily the best things in life can change
  •  
  • The distance is killing me
  • We're so far apart
  • Is this how it has to be
  • Well it's breakin' my heart
  • The distance is killing me
  • And I can't pretend
  • But I just won't believe that this is the end
  •  
  • I stared into your eyes
  • To find what I once had lived for
  • And I watched as you turned away
  • Nothing could ever tell me more
  •  
  • the distance
  • all I wanted was you by my side
  • the distance
  • but I pushed you away the harder I tried
  • and time just keeps ticking' away and away and away
  • the distance
  • and I can't break through I can't break through no
  •  
  • The distance is killing me
  • I'm here on my own
  • Take me back to the dream
  • Cause I can't find my way home
  • The distance is killing me
  • Come on girl give me your hand
  • Take me back to the dream
  • Cause i know you can
  • The distance is killing me
  • Oh it's killing me girl yeah
  • Is this how it has to be
  • Does it have to be like this……..
