Trying not to lose my head
But I have never been this scared before
Tell you what I'll do instead,
Lay my body down on the floor
To forget what I've done,
Silhouette til the good lord come

All we know is distance
We're close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one

Trying not to lose your own,
Boxing up everything, you've got
All you ever knew of home,
You're scared, scared to see
Your mother there, in the door,
You wonder where, did the years go

All we know is distance
We're close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
But this is how the story ends
Or have we just begun
To kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one

The violins make no sound
And I begin to feel the ground

All we know is distance
We're close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
But this is where the story ends
Or have we just begun
To kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one

    This seems like a long distance relationship song. Or like a son who lives far away from his parents and hasn't seen them in awhile

    Isaac slade wrote this for his girlfriend at the time. She lived in seattle while he lived in denver. She was getting ready and moving in with him. They had a freak out! But married now, unfortunately! Look it up! And she literally hates this song because he was "too honest" with his feelings in the song she says.

    This is a song about seperation. The couple is seperating and they don't know where they are gonna go next. The future is coming and its not gonna stop and they're scared...

    I really hope that they play this at my graduation! It so describes it.

    "All we know is distance, we're closer then we run. Kiss away the difference, I know you hate this one but this is where the story ends, or has it just begun?"
