Far away in another place
I'd give my soul just to see your face
Found a note hidden in my suitcase
Of everything that you just couldn't say
How'd you know I needed that today?

Wherever you are is where I wanna be
Look around and tell me what you see
Everything, everything but me
No matter how many miles stand in between
In my heart is where you'll be
Holding on to all our dreams
With everything, everything but me

Looking through photographs today
Different times always seem the same
Then I saw a picture of your smile
Something I haven't seen in a while
You know the one
The one you love to hate
But every time it takes my breathe away

Wherever you are is where I wanna be
Look around and tell me what you see
Everything, everything but me
No matter how many miles stand in between
In my heart is where you'll be
Holding on to all our dreams
With everything, everything but me

Do you know how much it hurts to go
And leave it all behind, leave it all behind
I see you in my mind
You were right there all the time

Far away in another place
Give my soul just to see your face

Wherever you are is where I wanna be
Look around and tell me what you see
Everything, everything but me
No matter how many miles stand in between
In my heart is where you'll be
Holding on to all our dreams, yeah
No matter how many miles stand in between
In my heart is where you'll be
Holding on to all our dreams
With everything, everything but me
With everything, everything but me

    I think this song is all about timing. They're good friends who 'get' each other, and share a love that is pure and real, but neither of them want to admit it. They're too afraid to confront these feelings because of where they're at in their lives right now, and neither of them wants to 'get in the other's way'. Yet, at the same time, they want more than anything to really be there for each other. So it's a constant struggle between having the ultimate patience to wait things out, and wanting to tell them how much you do just love them. So the 'distance' is metaphorical.

    This song, its meaning to me is indescribable, honestly I've lived my life loving music but never thinking I'd ever be able to pull out a meaning as powerful as this one. In all my eightteen years, I've never felt so great before. The one I lost is the love of my life I know this with the bottom of my heart. I know that its not our time yet, we met at a wrong time. Now i'll gladly wait patiently for her and hold her memories and love within my heart and soul and live my life till its time for me to make my move once more. I've always felt that life hated me but I've realized that life is simply easier when you finally learn to open your eyes and lose your stubbornness to see all the truly amazing things it has to offer to you. - anonymous.
