"Love long distance" as written by and Nathan Howdeshell Hannah Blilie....
Call yourself a romantic
Let me explain
Been across the whole Atlantic
And back again
I had it with your antics
Your childish games
Baby
I call your number twice
But it rang and rang
Against my best friend's advice
I should be ashamed
(You) Did it to me once
You'll do it again
So she says

Love long distance
Is testing me trying my patience
I need more of your assistance now
Love long distance
Is testing me trying my patience
I need more of your assistance now

Heard it through the bassline
Not much longer would you be my baby

Work yourself into a panic
Bent outta shape
And then take me for granted
Like nothing's changed
All my friends are asking
Why you're that way
But I can't explain
Why I call your number twice
And / but it rang and rang
Against my best friend's advice
I should be ashamed
You did it to me once
You'll do it again
She promises

Love long distance
Is testing me trying my patience
I need more of your assistance now
You're making me crazy
The way that you've been acting lately
I need more of your assistance now

Breaking up or breaking down
When I need you you can't be found
I want someone who's around for me
Does it have to be so complicated?
Either way I'm devastated
I could use a little comforting

Love long distance
Is testing me trying my patience
I need more of your assistance now
Love long distance
Is testing me trying my patience
I need more of your assistance now

Love love love love
I need some assistance now
Love
(And) I will thank you for your cooperation
(And) I will thank you for your cooperation
(And) I will thank you for your cooperation
Stop playing with me

    General CommentI think the the song is self explanatory due to the title.

    However, to me, I think it's about the person who is sung about, they aren't emotionally involved. They show no interest in the relationship, their emotions seem to be somewhere else, hence the "long distance" part.

    My favorite line:
    "Love long distance is testing me, trying my patience"
    Because, love sure does know how to make you react in ways you never thought you would.
