Christina Perri – Distance lyrics

The sun is filling up the room, and I can hear you dreaming.
Do you feel the way I do? Right now.
I wish we would just give up, 'cause the best part is falling.
Call it anything but love.
And I will make sure to keep my distance.
Say I love you when you're not listening.
And how long can we keep this up, up, up
?

Please don't stand so close to me; I'm having trouble breathing.
I'm afraid of what you'll see right now.
I give you everything I am, all my broken heartbeats, until I know you'll understand.
And I will make sure to keep my distance.
Say I love you when you're not listening.
And how long can we keep this up, up, up?

And I keep waiting for you to take me.
You keep waiting to save what we have.

So I'll make sure to keep my distance.
Say I love you when you're not listening.
And how long can we keep this up, up, up?

Make sure to keep my distance.!
Say I love you when you're not listening.
How long 'till we call this love, love, love?

    The girl is waiting for the guy to confess to her about his feelings. She knows there's something between them but the guy want to preserve the 'thing' they had now. And since she doesn't want to wait anymore she would just keep her distance and continue loving him because it hurts her to know that they can't be more than friends and she really doesn't know how looong would she have to wait for the guy to tell her he loves her.

    Distance is a song that makes me think about the true love, the love of my life. Sometimes I think that I already know who is this person that caught my heart once and keep on doing it, but I deny it, because it is easier to think that maybe is someone else different because of a lot of problems that we have had. But I keep on feeeling that love, like in secret, so i'm trying to keep the distance, but its very difficult.

    It's about a girl and a boy who everyone but themselves know about their mutual affection for each other. They both are waiting for the other to initiate a relationship. It's the phase before one enters into a serious relationship but in the song for the both of them, it's going really slow. They both are frustrated to the point of wanting to give up on the affection they have but they can't. It's so frustratingly slow, it hurts to wait in uncertainty.

    'distance' is a song about loving someone at the wrong time in your life. Maybe its too soon, maybe its too late, but never the less its about being around that one whom your heart longs for without being about to show your true feelings, without being able to tell them. Its very hard to keep love a secret, and I wrote this song about the one time, I had to. ~christina perri (from a YouTube video).

    Another meaning to the song could be that someone that has been in a relationship for awhile is having trouble staying committed for reasons of feeling unloved by the other. So to preserve oneself and your heart you keep your distance and build up the walls. While trying to figure everything else and the other person also seems like they are trying to figure things out. Seems just a bit heart breaking because to me the song is about miscommunication and how it can just tear everything apart.
