  • You're far away tonight
    Haven't seen you in a while
    It always feels like a climb
    On this never ending hill

    And I keep saying wait just one more day
    But days slowly drift away
    And I can hold to the memories
    But they won't hold me in the same way, as you

    And this distance between us has come and cut us clean as
    A sharp blade
    And this distance between us has made my heart as weak as
    Silk that's frayed

    And I just wanna hold ya, hold ya, hold ya, now
    You're the one that keeps me, keeps me, on the ground
    I just wanna hold ya, hold ya, hold ya, now
    Can we turn this knife the blunt way around

    I feel empty my eyes are closed
    It's getting dark and I'm alone
    And I sleep next to my window
    In case you decide to come home

    And I keep saying wait just one more day
    But days slowly drift away
    The memories I have begin to fade
    'Cause you're so far away

    This distance between us has come and cut us clean as
    A sharp blade
    And this distance between us has made my heart as weak as
    Silk that's frayed

    And I just wanna hold ya, hold ya, hold ya, now
    You're the one that keeps me, keeps me, on the ground
    I just wanna hold ya, hold ya, hold ya, now
    Can we turn this knife the blunt way around

    And I can only stay
    One more day
    It's like waiting on the rain
    In a warm summer haze

    And this distance between us has come and cut us clean as
    A sharp blade
    And this distance between us has made my heart as weak as
    Silk that's frayed

    And I just wanna hold ya, hold ya, hold ya, now
    You're the one that keeps me, keeps me, on the ground
    I just wanna hold ya, hold ya, hold ya, now
    Can we turn this knife the blunt way around, now Writer/s: Nina Nesbitt
