Brian McKnight – Distant Lover lyrics

Distant lover, lover
Oooh, so many miles away
Heaven knows that I've longed for you
Every night, every night
And sometimes I yearn through the day
Distant lover
You should think about me
Say a prayer for me
Please, please baby
You should think about me sometime
Think about me here in misery
As I reminisce, through our joyful summer together
Promisies we made or the day you left child
And all of a sudden everything seemed to explode
Now I gaze out my window, sugar
Cuz I'm lonesome now

Distant Lover
Sugar, how can you treat my heart so mean and cruel
Didn't you know sugar that
Every moment that I spent with you
I treasured it like it was precious jewels

Hey baby, lord have mercy

You have to come back to me baby
I can't live without your lovin'
Something I wanna say
When you left and took all of me with you
Baby please, please, please
Won't you come on back
No one could ever be like you
Can't you come on back to me baby
Please baby, come back to me
Make this house a home again
