So Far Away

  • Each night I feel the distance that has grown between us
    Open up as lonely as the space between the stars
    I wish that I could find a way
    To smash my fist right through these walls
    Of ugliness and emptiness
    And gently touch your face

    But every time that I touch you
    You feel so far away
    And every time that you need me
    I feel so far away

    As you lie silently beside me choking back your tears
    I wonder if you recognize
    That silence now defines us
    Desperately I try to fight this overwhelming sense
    That I may never find
    The strength to change
    How hopeless we've become

    But every time that I touch you
    You feel so far away
    And every time that you need me
    I feel so far away
    Can I feel so far away?
    (Feel so far away
    I feel so far, far away)

    We need to find a way to break this silence
    that's between us
    So I scream your name
    I scream your name

    But every time that I touch you
    You feel so far away
    And every time that you need me
    You feel so far away
    And every time that you reach out
    You feel me pull away
    And every time that I touch you, I touch you, I touch you
    You feel so far away Writer/s: Andy Kubiszewski, Christopher Hall, James Eric Sellers, Walter Flakus
