  • China all the way to new york
    I can feel the distance getting close
    You're right next to me
    But I need an airplane
    I can feel the distance as you breathe

    Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
    How can I when you build a great wall around you
    In your eyes I saw a future together
    You just look away in the distance

    China decorates our table
    Funny how the cracks don't seem to show
    Pour the wine dear
    You say we'll take a holiday
    But we never can agree on where to go

    Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
    How can I when you build a great wall around you
    In your eyes I saw a future together
    You just look away in the distance

    China all the way to New York
    Maybe you got lost in Mexico
    You're right next to me
    I think that you can hear me
    Funny how the distance learns to grow

    Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
    How can I when you build a great wall around you
    I can feel the distance
    I can feel the distance
    I can feel the distance getting close Writer/s: TORI ELLEN AMOS
