The Distance

  • Days in motion
    From the west coasts to the ocean
    Mainline to the sunset
    As we're sitting in the van
    Heading out to mainland
    Age is nothing but a number
    The difference in experience that we relate

    The distance from where the heart lies
    Between the words and sometimes, it's
    A meaning to interpret and relate
    A moment in explosions, like looking out the window
    As we're passing by the places out of state

    A conversation
    Ending in frustration
    I never saw the faces
    Before it was too late
    Indecision is better than compliance
    Questioning the motives
    Before it turns to hate

    A seconds chance to get things right
    Transition between the dark and the light
    Coming home to the same things
    Leaves me wanting more Writer/s: Christopher Dominic Urbanowicz, Edward Owen Lay, Russell Leetch, Thomas Michael Smith
