"Long Distance" as written by Philip Lawrence, Bruno Mars, Jeff Bhasker and Rodney Jerkins....
There's only so many songs that I can sing to pass the time
And I'm running out of things to do to get you off my mind, oh
All I have is this picture in a frame (oh, ah)
That I hold close to see your face everyday

With you is where I'd rather be
But we're stuck where we are
It's so hard, we're so far
This long distance is killin' me
I wish that you were here with me
But we're stuck where we are
It's so hard, we're so far
This long distance is killin' me

It's so hard, it's so hard, where we are, where we are
You're so far, this long distance is killin' me
It's so hard, it's so hard, where we are, where we are
You're so far, this long distance is killin' me

Now the minutes feel like hours
And the hours feel like days (whoa, oh)
While I'm away (away)
You know right now I can't be home (ah)
But I'm comin' home soon (ah)
Coming home soon (ah)
All I have is this picture in a frame (ah)
That I hold close to see your face everyday.

With you is where I'd rather be (where I'd rather be)
But we're stuck where we are (oh, oh)
It's so hard (oh, ah), we're so far (oh, ah)
This long distance is killin' me
I wish that you were here with me (you were here with me)
But we're stuck where we are (ohh)
It's so hard (oh, ah), we're so far (oh, ahh)

Can you hear me crying?
Oh (oh ah, oh ah)
Can you hear me crying? (oh, ah)
Oh (oh ah, oh ah)
Can you hear me crying? (oh, ah)

Oh (oh ah, oh ah)
Oh, woah (oh, ah)
Oh, no (oh ah, oh, ah)

With you is where I'd rather be (where I'd rather be), whoa
(But we're stuck where we are) oh
(It's so hard) so hard (we're so far), so far
This long distance is killin' me
I wish that you are here with me (you are here with me)
(But we're stuck where we are) stuck where we are, so hard, so far
This long distance is killin' me

It's so hard, it's so hard, where we are, where we are
You're so far, this long distance is killin' me
It's so hard, it's so hard, where we are, where we are
You're so far, this long distance is killin' me

There's only so many songs that I can sing to pass the time

    General CommentLike all the songs on her newest album are AMAZING. I haven't found one I didn't like. This one especially is beautiful and catchy at the same time. Way to go, Brandy. :)

    Song Meaningthe test of love. the challenge of time and space! its about waiting .. and hoping they will be wating too.. jst because things change u have only ur faith as ur defense!
    i like this song very much .. not only coz it carries soo much meaning and emotions but i can also relate to it." im here his there kinda thing" and we both wish we were together but we came to an understanding that this is how it has to be, at least for now.. we rnt really together. i stopped calling him coz the situation got tensed but i know i can feel it still there. so i decided to end the communication and give him his freedom. and when i return i stil am very hopeful! but as for now. im gowing and learning without him!
