Oh, if I cross your path again
Who knows where or who knows when
On some mountain without number
On some highway without end
Don't grasp my hand and say
'Fate has brought you here today'
Oh, fate is only foolin' with us, friend

(Chorus:)
Keep your distance
Keep your distance
Oh, when I feel you close to me
What can I do but fall
Keep your distance
Keep your distance
Oh, with us it must be all or none at all
(Oh, with us it must be all or none at all)

Oh, it's a desperate game we play
Throw our souls, our lives, away
On wounds that can't be mended
And debts that can't be paid
Oh, I played, and I got stung
Now I'm biting back my tongue
And sweepin' out the footprints where I strayed

(Chorus)

Keep your distance (keep your distance, keep your distance)
Oh, keep your distance (keep your distance)
