How many tears must we cry before learning,
Things that we have they're for real and we're losing,
Can't get close enough to you, 'cause you're just too far away

Why do you believe that we've got something coming,
You took it all, left me standing here with nothing,
Can't get close enough to you, 'cause you're just too far away,
Too far away

In your world you must be dreaming, if you think you can survive,
Taking all and giving nothing that's a crime
What makes you something special, what about me, I'm here too,
You don't care what I'm feeling and that's the truth
Can't get close enough to you, 'cause you're just too far away

All I need is understanding, and the right to survive,
Only you could see the warnings, and pass them by
What makes you something special, what about me, I'm here too,
You don't care what I'm feeling, and that's the truth
Can't get close enough to you, 'cause you're just too far away
Too far away
Can't get close enough to you, 'cause you're just too far away

How many tears must we cry before learning,
Things that we had they're for real and we're losing,
Can't get close enough to you, 'cause you're just too far away
Too far away, too far away, too far away
