The Distance

Available on: The Distance


I saw an old friend yesterday
Guess we both had too much to say
Seems we’ve taken different sides
All caught up in politics & pride

If we can get beyond the blame
I know we’d see we’re still the same
The distance between us will fade
There’ll be no distance between us someday

In that distant land across the sea
There are people just like you & me
They just want to see their children grow
And feel the same love we all know

When we get beyond all the hurt & blame
And realize we’re all the same
The distance between us will fade
There’ll be no distance between us someday

We can rise up toward 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’ll be no distance between us one of these days
One of these days

We can rise up toward 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’ll be no distance between us one of these days
One of these days
We can rise up toward each other
We can build a bridge brother to brother
No distance, between us, one of these days
