"How Far" as written by Jimmy Benedicto Borja, Kelsey Sue Klingensmith and Don Rollins....
There's a boat
I could sail away
There's the sky
I could catch a plane
There's a train, there's the tracks
I could leave and I could choose to not come back
Oh, never come back

There you are
Giving up the fight
Here I am
Begging you to try
Talk to me, let me in
But you just put your wall back up again
Oh, when's it gonna end

How far do I have to go to make you understand
I wanna make this work so much it hurts but I just can't
Keep on giving, go on living with the way things are
So, I'm gonna walk away
And it's up to you to say how far

There's a chance
I could change my mind
But I won't
Not 'till you decide
What you want, what you need
Do you even care if I stay or leave
Oh, what's it gonna be

How far do I have to go to make you understand
I wanna make this work so much it hurts but I just can't
Keep on giving, go on living with the way things are
So, I'm gonna walk away
And it's up to you to say how far

Out of this chair
Or just across the room
Halfway down the block
Or halfway to the moon

How far do I have to go to make you understand
I wanna make this work so much it hurts but I just can't
Keep on giving, go on living with the way things are
So, I'm gonna walk away
And it's up to you to say
Yeah, I'm gonna walk away
And it's up to you to say
How far
How far
Ooh

    General CommentOne of my favorites of Martina's yet. Her voice is so powerful, even more so on this one it seems, and the truth of it is so real.

    General CommentGreat Song. Martina sings the hell out of it - She's sooo good! It's just about wanting to keep on going in an relationship, but it's too hard, and there's no reason for it to keep going so she's telling him "Make me believe you want me in your life"
