Scream out all the ways you notice
The past is gone, forget what you had
If you're the only one who knows it
Then you can't come back to me, I know
Do whispers of lovers always hold you way
Underneath the tides in our minds?

Don't you wish you were?
Don't you wish I was?
Something more than mystery to uncover
Don't you wish I was?
Don't you wish we were?
Lovers without distance from each other

You say that you believe in all this
But you can't pretend for the sake of faith
Are we the only ones who mean it?
For all you give you take from me

Don't you wish you were?
Don't you wish I was?
Something more than mystery to uncover
Don't you wish I was?
Don't you wish we were?
Lovers without distance from each other
And I had wished you were
And I had wished we were
Lovers without distance, distance from each other

(If you see them)

Lovers without distance from each other

Do whispers of lovers

    General Commentheard it on grey's, which always comes up with good music

    this song is about a guy who has a long distance relationship, who is hoping the girl wants a closer relationship, maybe she is the reason they are far apart and she can change it.

    General CommentI don't believe this song refers to physical distance.It says "Don't you wish I was something more than mystery to uncover" that gives a hint that maybe he doen't understand her thats why they are not so "close",

    General CommentI don't think this is about physical distance either. Nothing to really back it up - the lyrics could go either way. Something about the mood of the song suggested to me that he's talking about an emotional distance that's developed over time.

    General CommentIt is about what could have been if the distance had not been there... And I do believe it was physical distance that caused the emotional distance.
