Ashton Edminster – Break The Distance lyrics

[Verse]
If I had a chance
I'd take it faster than a heartbeat

If I caught a glance,
I'd run to you like nobody was watching
But it's so hard to get to you
Cause when you see the sun, I see the moon

[Chorus]
Buckets of water, millions of clouds
Miles of road just to get where you are

Oh I wish, it wasn't so far...
Thousands of dollars just to be near
Countless thoughts of you being here

Oh I wish, it wasn't so hard
But maybe one day we can–
Break the Distance


[Verse]
I know it's hard,
For everyone to understand it

But you're in my heart,
Even though it feels like we got stranded

And I wish I could get to you
See you face to face
Without a screen cutting through


[Chorus]
Buckets of water, millions of clouds
Miles of road just to get where you are
Oh I wish, it wasn't so far...
Thousands of dollars just to be near
Countless thoughts of you being here
Oh I wish, it wasn't so hard
But maybe one day we can–
Break the Distance

[Bridge] x2
Clouds will you please help me out
I need to go and see them now
Pick me up, off my feet
I know that it's crazy
But I am ready with my suitcase by me

[Chorus]
Buckets of water, millions of clouds
Miles of road just to get where you are
Oh I wish, it wasn't so far...
Thousands of dollars just to be near
Countless thoughts of you being here
Oh I wish, it wasn't so hard
But maybe one day we can–
Break the Distance

    My understanding of this song probably isn't right haha. But for my understanding I see it as someone wanting to meet their internet friend. If they had the chance then they would accept it right away without thinking much and once they see them they would just run over to them.

    I know it may seem stupid, but this song is about how every fans feel when they think about their idol(s). Many of these teenagers don't have the money to pay a concert ticket or to even go to a meet-and-greet, and this song kinda reflects what they feel, like when Ashton sing "I need to go and see them now".
    Sometimes, when they just feel bad or/and depressed, this is one of the first thoughts that comes in their head, so yeah.

    This song has a lot of meaning for me. A few months ago, I met my wonderful love online. The moment I saw him, something about him stood out so strongly in comparison to everyone else that I've ever seen. That something about him peaked my interest and drew me in. I eventually realized one thing: there was no particular thing about him that was special, for it was everything about him that actually was. The whole distance situation is not always understandable by others. People have expressed their lack of understanding to both of us. Not everyone understands how one can possibly love another that lives far away from them. What people seem to forget when they say that is that if you truly love someone, no obstacle will change that, including distance. Despite what anyone says and the stranded feeling that distance brings about, Jeremy will always be in my heart. It's definitely hard. I see his face on a screen on a daily basis, and I just want him to actually be in front of me. I want to feel his presence more than I've ever wanted anything. I wish that we didn't have to have distance between us, but that won't stop me from loving him. We were able to meet in person for my birthday. I'm flying to see him for the second time next month, and this song is in the playlist of songs I'm going to listen to on my flight. As the lyrics state ("thousands of dollars just to be near"), it isn't going to be cheap. He is worth an infinite amount more than all of the money that it will ever take to see him. I love him so much, and I long for the day that he and I can break the distance for good.

    If you are in a long distance relationship, please never let anyone try to talk you out of it. Always listen to your heart. Always be strong. Never give up. If it's meant to be, then the day that the distance can be broken will come. They will be in your arms, and anyone that has ever doubted you will rightfully be proved wrong.

    My friend showed me this song when we were on a plane to Florida last December and told me Ashton's story of this song and what it's about. She told me that Ashton is a 5 Seconds of Summer fan, 5sos if you will, and wrote this song about them and how most fans don't get to see and meet them like others do. Sometimes they don't even visit their state, and these fans like to think they are family to them and love them dearly. Not just freaking out over their photos, but loving everything they do and what makes these people themselves. They wish they had the money and the luck to just see them in person. Not a lot of people understand that people can love others that they haven't even met so much, but it happens. That is what this song is about.

    This song is about people meeting there internet friends. That's how I've always interpreted it. It's really awesome, though, and it makes me cry because my friend is about to meet her internet friend and she literally played this song (she bought it) about 10 times in a row, before I got sick of it.
