So close, and yet so far.

I could contact you

If I wanted to do so.

But truth be told,

It's harder than it looks you know.

You are in the same country now

Just a short drive away.

I know where you are,

My instincts know the way.

I could pick up the phone

And dial the number I know so well.

I could walk up to that door,

And ring the Goddamn bell.

Your presence is there,

Haunting me as the seconds tick by.

Thinking about you each second,

How the time does fly.

My pride holds me back

Form phoning you.

The promise I made, not a year ago,

Won't allow me to.

I want to hear your voice.

I want to feel your arms around me.

I want to run up and hold you close.

I want to call you my family.

In my heart of hearts,

I know I can't do it.

But each memory flies past,

Each one a direct hit.

You're here

And I want to call.

Inside I have no happiness,

How could I fall?

I want to see you,

Just one more time.

Let me have the last memory,

That I can call 'mine'.

And for a solution

I know pray.

For you are here, close by.

So close, and yet so far away.
