Jamie Walters – The Distance lyrics

In the beginning, we were much too brave.

We had our love & we were saved.

We've come so far & that's not how we are no more.

Tell me why things have got to change.

We held love in our hands, why we tore it apart,

I just don't understand.


There's a distance between us.

Now you feel so far away.

Oh the distance between us.

How did we ever get this way.

Oh baby don't slip away.

Now it's raining & I'm driving much too fast.

How can a city be so dark.

There's this sensation, feeding on itself.

I've got to get to where you are.

We held love in our hands, why we tore it apart,

I don't just understand.



I want to reach out & pull you close to me.

Wanna make you remember, just how good it use to be.
