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.
