The Distance

Album: The Distance (2009)
  • Saw an old friend yesterday
    Guess we both had too much to say
    Seems we've taken different sides
    All caught up in politics and pride

    If we can get beyond the blame
    I know we would see we
    Are still the same
    The distance between us will fade
    There will be no distance
    Between us someday

    In that distant land across the sea
    There are people just like you and me
    They just want to see
    Their children grow
    And feel the same love we all know
    When we get beyond all
    The hurt and blame
    And realize we are all the same
    The distance between us will fade
    There'll be no distance
    Between us someday

    We can rise up
    Join each other
    We can build a bridge
    Brother to brother
    Take the steps
    We need to take
    To get us to a better place

    Where the distance between us will fade
    There will be no distance
    Between us one of these days
    One of these days

    We can rise up
    Join each other
    We can build a bridge
    Brother to brother
    Take the steps
    We need to take
    To get us to a better place
    Where the distance
    Between us fades away
    There will be no distance
    Between us one of these days

    One of these days

    We can rise up
    Join each other
    We can build a bridge
    Brother to brother
    No distance
    Between us
    One of these days Writer/s: GARY NICHOLSON, KENNY GREENBERG, TAYLOR HICKS
