Though it weighs on my mind, I can't ask
Tired of swimming to you, I fall silent
Though I want to see you, I'm pushed by invisible waves
And I find myself even further away

Keep it going, baby, so it doesn't stop
If you don't feel the same, then tell me
Though I don't believe in forcing things
It's alright to try, if it's just a little

I wanna be with you now
Together, let's shrink this distance
If we do it now, we can make it
We can start over, though we can't become one
I wanna be with you now
Someday, even this distance
Will become something we can embrace
We can start sooner, I wanna be with you after all

You can be hurt this much, by just a single word
But you'll teach me about loneliness

When you can't protect it, keep on trying, baby
Though it isn't how I promised it would be, trust me
Though I don't believe in forcing things
It's alright to try, if I'm with you

I wanna be with you now
Together, let's gaze at this distance
If we do it now, we can make it
We can start over, I want to put it into words
I wanna be with you now
Along the way, even this distance
Will become something we can embrace
We should stay together, I wanna be with you after all

I wanna be with you now
'cause I know this can't be forever
We can start over, just you and me
I wanna be with you now
'cause I know this can't be forever
We should stay together, just you and me
I wanna be with you
