I CAN'T GET TO YOU FROM HERE
WRITERS STEPHEN CHANDLER, FRED KNIPE

I'm glad you called me, I still feel your voice
Touch something inside me but I have no choice
But to tell you I'm no longer one of boys
And I can't get to you from here

Now I don't think you'd know me to see me up close
I've built me a family and I don't like to boast
But I'm all settled into what I need the most
And I can't get to you from here

I can't turn back the years
And get crazy again with nothing to fear
Easy as that might appear
I can't turn my back on the love living here

I only bet when I've got all the cards
I don't take on all comers when they come on too hard
I'm a daddy and a voter and I go to bed tired
And I can't get to you from here

I can't turn back the years
And get crazy again with nothing to fear
Easy as that might appear
I can't turn my back on the love living here

Well I'm glad you called but it's sad in a way
To still fell the flame when there's nothing to say
The world we once lived in's now so far away
That I can't get to you from here
No I can't get to you from here
