"The Distance" as written by and John (deutschendorf)/denver Denver....
Do you remember?
Do you remember?
Do you remember,
How you were gonna stay free?
But they had plans for you
And things to do
The same thing goes for me
Well, well I never
Saw it coming to me
But when I turn around to look at you
It was all that I could do

To see the distance
Everybody wants to run
And I'm no different
Feeling like the only one

In the beginning
Everything was so close
And it seems that everywhere you go
Everybody knows
You don't remember
What you wanted to be
Well they went round the class
And you were last
The clock was fast
So no-one asked

To see the distance
Everybody wants to run
And I'm no different
Feeling like the only one

Well how long can you run?
How far and what fun?
How far will you run,
To get whatever you're after?
You're after
You're after
You're

Well I've been looking
And I still can't see
How we get from A to be to see
And feel like should be
Well I've been running
But I've been running around
Now there's nothing left
For me to do
But sit around
And see the view

And see the distance
Everybody wants to run
And I'm no different
Feeling like the only one

Do you remember?
Do you remember?
Do you remember?

    General CommentHow come there's not a single comment on this song???It really got to me when i first heard it. To me it's about old friends we had when we were young, may be even school friends. for whatever the reason the two were forced to separate, may be were sent to broading school by parents : "Do you remember? How you were gonna stay free? But they had plans for you, And things to do" and years after years they have doin what they were told to aimlessly, like running round in circles...

    General CommentWow, what a great song! i really can relate to it at this stage in my life. it does seem like yesterday when i was still in school, carefree, just having fun with all my friends. And today im about to graduate from college, everyone i know has grown up and are getting jobs... very touching...
