The Distance

  • There's a train out in the distance, destination still unknown
    Far away where no one's waiting, so far from home, so far from home

    There's a rose outside your window, the first snow is falling down
    Like that lonesome whistle blowing
    I keep on going, keep on going

    [Chorus:]
    Close your eyes and see my blue skies breaking through these dark clouds
    You are the light
    In my mind I see your red dress and your arms are reaching through the night
    I'll never give up the fight
    I'll go the distance

    There's a thread that runs between us pulling 'cross this great divide
    It's only there for the believers
    Don't stop believing, don't stop believing

    Close your eyes and see my blue skies breaking through these dark clouds
    You are the light
    In my mind I see your red dress and your arms are reaching through the night
    I'll never give up the fight
    I'll go the distance, I'll go the distance

    There's a never ending story that begins with you and I
    Like the rose outside your window
    Don't let it die, don't let it die

    Close your eyes and see my blue skies breaking through these dark clouds
    You are the light
    In my mind I see your red dress and your arms are reaching through the night

    Close your eyes and see my blue skies breaking through these dark clouds
    You are the light
    In my mind I see your red dress and my arms are reaching through the night
    I'll never give up the fight
    I'll go the distance Writer/s: JON BON JOVI, DESMOND CHILD, RICHARD SAMBORA
