Amanda was a small town blonde haired beauty
She had heaven eyes and could light up the moon
When she walked into view
She was the prettiest girl at my school

And I knew she’d never give me the time of day
No girls like her never looked twice my way
She was out of my league
Oh, but that was alright with me

I loved her from a distance
Like an angel watchin’ from afar
I never had the nerve to mention
The fire burning in my heart
I knew a boy like me never would have stood a chance
So I did the best I could and I loved her from a distance

The homecoming dance of our senior year
I finally got my courage up enough to overcome my fears.
I would have asked her to dance
But her boyfriend never gave me a chance
Every step of every song they swung the night away
I wish I could have wrapped my arms around her waist
And told her how I cared
Instead I only stood there and stared

I kept loving her from a distance
Like an angel watching from afar
I never had the nerve to mention
The fire burning in my heart
I knew a boy like me never would have stood a chance
So I did the best I could and I loved her from a distance

The other night I saw her for the first time in years
My heart skipped a beat when she came walking near
In those faded blue jeans, she’s still the prettiest girl I’ve seen
And much to my surprise she said hello
and that she loved listening to me singing on the radio
I said “that’s a funny, funny thing cause your in every song that I sing”

Yes I’ve been loving you from a distance
Since you were only 17
I never had the nerve to mention
The feelings flowing inside me
I knew a boy like me never would have stood a chance
So I poured my heart into the music that I made
And I kept loving you from a distance
Oh now we have a story book romance
And I know one thing’s for sure
This love can go the distance
