How do I get close
When she looks like an angel
A moment of her time just seems impossible to me
It's hard to find the words
To get to know this stranger
I'm scared of what she'll say
If what I say sounds incomplete

And it feels like, we belong together
Can someone tell me where do I start?

'Cause I can't keep on,
Feeling the way I do
I can't keep on,
Hiding my heart from you
I gotta say something before
Someone else comes through
I can't keep on
Loving you, from a distance

She's always on my mind
There's no room left for thinking
I'm tired of waiting, slowly fading
It needs to happen now (right now)
'Cause I'm running out of time
And I feel this ship is sinking
The doors are closing
I am frozen
I need her around

And it feels like, we belong together
Can someone tell me where do I start?

'Cause I can't keep on,
Feeling the way I do
And I can't keep on,
Hiding my heart from you
I gotta say something before
Someone else comes through
I can't keep on
Loving you, from a distance

From a distance
From a distance
From a distance

I can't hide

I can't keep on,
Feeling the way I do
And I can't keep on,
Hiding my heart from you
I gotta say something before
Someone else comes through
'Cause I can't keep on
Loving you,
I can't keep on
Loving you,
From a distance

    To start the title of the song's really ironic. It's about a guy whose madly head over heels with this woman. But there's this space between them he wants to get rid of, cos maybe he's sure that he's the one that the girl deserves and vice versa. He can't keep loving her from a distance, I think he's finding time and saving the guts to tell her. It's not easy, but he just can't hold it any longer.
    Very nice song. :) Two thumbs up! ;)
