"5 Minutes Away" as written by Chanz Parkman, Dallas Austin and Natalie Cole....
Well, I've been a lot of places
And I've seen a lot of things
I met all kinds of people
Including queens and kings

Had my share of heartbreak
Stabbed me in my back
I cried to my friends about it
And they talked a lot of slack

But oh, what a revelation
When much to my surprise
Then came you, wonderful you
Right before my eyes

5 minutes away, 5 minutes away
You know I been
All around the world to find
It was right at my door

5 minutes away, 5 minutes away
I found love, love
Just minutes away

Everybody's got a story
And it ain't nothing new
I'm talking to the one
Who's been looking for love
And it just might be you

While you're running around
Hanging all around town
With a fool that ain't no good
But that very special someone
Could be right in your neighborhood

5 minutes away, 5 minutes away
You know I went
All around the world
Just to find it right at my door

5 minutes away, 5 minutes away
You see, I found love, love, love
Just minutes away

Times when love ain't easy
It's a game that we all play
And the prize that we pay
Is sometimes much too high

Take it from me and don't look too far
Love might be in your own backyard
There's a better chance to find romance
Just by starting today

5 minutes away
You know I went
All around the world
To find it right at my door

5 minutes away, 5 minutes away
You know, love, love, love
Could be minutes away
I said, love, love, love
Is just minutes away

5, 5, 5, 5 minutes away
5, 5, 5 minutes away
5, 5, 5, 5 minutes away
5, 5, 5 minutes away

5, 5, 5, 5 minutes away
5, 5, 5 minutes away
5, 5, 5, 5 minutes away
5, 5, 5 minutes away
5, 5, 5, 5 minutes away
5, 5, 5 minutes away
