Distance is the reason she and me don't really talk no more
It's written on my ticket information on the freezer door
Me, I'm not sorry I got what came coming for me
It's only everything I wanted all my life.

Love was made to get us to stay in quite a closer region
I wish my love could stay around a little more.

Distance, Distance, Distance
It's what it is, what it is now, now, now

Distance makes a woman want to hear I love you more than once.
If I could find a word that feels remotely like the feeling is.
Me, I'm still lucky I will not succumb to all of this.
It made temptation buy the women all my life.
If love was me, you'd never stay in all the closest ranges.
You'd never find a love that's closest all the time.

Distance, Distance, Distance, Distance
It's why I leave before I make myself say goodbye again
Goodbye Goodbye again

Distance makes a copy of my face she will bend inside her dreams.
Blood on all these clothes is from the telephonic surgeries.
Distance makes a man believe that loyalty is a thankless chore.
Loyalty's the reason I leave semen on my hotel floor, yeah.

Distance, Distance, Distance, yes
It's what it is, it's what it is, now, now, now, now

    General CommentI only have a not-so-good version of this song from an Australian concert. I guess it's just about long distance relationships not working?

    It's definitely about long DISTANCE relationships and the difficulties with that, especially being a musician and having girls constantly throw themselves at you with a girlfriend back home. I love how John can put words in that would seem vulgar in general but in the song it just completely sums up the feeling. I love how he sings this with such conviction in his voice...I wish he'd play it more than once so the quality on my tape was a little better :P
