The sky has lost it's color
The sun has turned to grey
At least that's how it feels to me
Whenever you're away

I crawl up in a corner
To watch the minutes pass
Each one brings me closer to
The time you comin' back

I can't take the distance
I can't take the miles
I can't take the time 'til I next see you smile
I can't take the distance
And I'm not ashamed
That with every breath I'll take
I'm callin' your name
I can take the distance

I still believe in feelings
But sometimes I feel too much
I make believe you're close to me
But it ain't close enough
Not nearly close enough

I can't take the distance
I can't take the miles
I can't take the time until the next time I see you smile
I can't take the distance
And I'm not ashamed
That with every breath I'll take
I callin you're name
I can take the distance

I brave fire
And I brave rain
To be by your side
I do anything
I can't take the distance

I will go the distance
I will go the miles
That's how much you mean
It's hard to remember as long as you're away
When I find solace there's only one way

I can't take the distance
I can't take the miles
I can't take the time until the next time I see you smile
I can't take the distance
And I'm not ashamed
That I can't take a breath without seeing your name
And I can't take the distance
The distance

    For us who are inlove, being apart from our love ones makes us weak and be sad 'cause you feel that you are alone without them. You want to spend every minute with the one you love the most.
