I hear you crying and I know
What it's like to be alone
You're scared and I'm not there
It's like you're living with a ghost
Someone you can't hold
And you say it's so unfair

And just so you know
The distance is what's killing me
Time and space have become the enemy
And what I need is so far away
And so it goes
The distance makes it hard to breathe
My heart won't let go easily
I don't want to be this far away

I'm lying by myself
The silence seems to swell
Someday this all will change

It's a temporary pain
See your face and speak your name
Till then I'll scream into the night

And just so you know
The distance is what's killing me
Time and space have become the enemy
And what I need is so far away
And so it goes
The distance makes it hard to breathe
My heart won't let go easily
I don't want to be this far away

Well I've got my life
And you've got my world tonight
And I miss you (I miss you), I miss you (I miss you)

And just so you know (killing me)
The distance is what's killing me (time and space)
Time and space have become the enemy (enemy)
And what I need is so far away

And so it goes (hard to breathe)
The distance makes it hard to breathe (won't let go)
My heart won't let go easily (easily)
I don't want to be this far away
