"Distance" as written by Jeremy F Coan, Marshal Kent Dutton, Joshua James Franklin, Ryan Gibbs and Jeremy Moore....
It's not the way you see me
It's the way you let me down
I can't believe that it hurts this much
When I hear your voice
You're calling out to me
Though you know I can't be with you

So please don't leave
Just remember to keep some distance
And remember you've already had your chance with me
I hope you see
I can never be without you
Just try to see the way that I see

It's not the way you need me
It's the way you drag me down
I can't believe that it hurts this much
I still hear your voice
You're calling out to me
Though you know I can't be with you

So please don't leave
Just remember to keep some distance
And remember you've already had your chance with me
I hope you see
I can never be without you
Just try to see the way that I see

You're a constant echo that I hear ringing in my ears
I see you, I see the way you see me
You're a constant burning that gets the best of me
I see you, I see the way you see me

Please don't leave
Just remember to keep some distance
Remember you've already had your chance with me
I hope you see
I can never be without you
Try to see the way that I see

Please don't leave
Just remember to keep some distance
And remember you've already had your chance with me
I hope you see
I can never be without you
Just try to see the way that I see

    General Commentaw this song is so pretty. my friends performed this for my birthday; man i was like in a trance lol. This song makes me sad though, it always reminds me of the boy I used to love with all my heart.

    General CommentThis song is about not wanting to be with a person because,as said in the song,they drag you down...yet you can't live without them and need them close.

    General CommentTo me this song means all those things that just cause relationships that are almost meant to be not work out. I relate to it right now. I think I love this girl and she's so great but she has a boyfriend that she doesn't wanna hurt and now she's leaving town. So as long as she keeps her distance it'll keep her from getting hurt but it'll hurt her either way.
