You know this winter's cold
'Cause you can see your own breath
And it's haunting, makes the hair stand up on your neck
Like you're walking with a ghost
Down a dark and lonely road
For the first time
Will send a shiver straight down your spine

And with each step
The fog is growing thicker
Covering
The path you lead
And all the space between

So far away
I can't see,
What's in front of me
Or where I've been led.
Five feet ahead
With five steps to take
So close to home
But so far away.

I fear the break of night
'Cause the sun just seems to die
Too quickly.
The shadows scatter from the city
Like they're running from the sight
Of the flickering streetlight covering me
Just covering
The path you lead
And all the space between.

So far away
I can't see,
What's in front of me
Or where I've been led.
Five feet ahead
With five steps to take
So close to home
But so far away.

It's not good enough,
Never thought to contain me
Face down in the street
I don't think you can change me.
I'm running away
From the love you could blame me
For everything that got in the way

So far away
I can't see,
What's in front of me
Or where I've been led.
Five feet ahead
With five steps to take
So close to home
So far away

Five feet ahead
With five steps to take
So close to home
So far away
