I want this...

The Distance

The sky has lost it's color
The sun has turned to grey
At least that's how it feels to me
Whenever you're away

I crawl up in the corner
As I watch the minutes pass
Each one brings me closer to
The time when you'll be back
You're coming back

I can't take the distance
I can't take the miles
I can't take the time
Until the next time I see you smile
I can't take the distance
And I'm not ashamed
That I can't take a breath without saying your name
I can brave a hurricane
And still be standing tall when all the dust has settled down
But I can't take the distance

I still believe in feelings
But sometimes I feel too much
I make believe you're close to me
But it ain't close enough
Not nearly close enough


This song was written by Evan Lowenstein (of Evan and Jaron), for his wife, and how he felt when he was on the road away from her

Can I tell you what I wouldn't give to have someone say "I can't take the distance, And I'm not ashamed, That I can't take a breath without saying your name"?

People always say how "heart-wrenching" a movie is, or a book, but do they really actually feel it in their hearts? I do when I hear this song. I felt it, and it made me want to grow up and find love, like in some sort of fairy tale.

"I want the fairy tale" - Vivian, Pretty Woman.

Evan and Jaron songs *always* make me weepy...

On an entirely different note, Evan is married? It seems like all of the ones I like have wives. This must be stopped.

Re: le sigh
I know what you mean. For some reason, married men are just so much more appealing. They have a different air to them, or something, and I like that. *sigh* But then again, they are married.
