Six weeks since I've been away
And now you're saying everything has changed
And I'm afraid that I might be losing you
And every night that we spend alone
Kills me thinking of you on your own
And I wish that I was back home next to you

Oh everyday you feel a little bit further away
And I don't know what to say

Are we wasting time talking on a broken line?
Telling you I haven't seen your face in ages
I feel like we're as close as strangers
I won't give up even though it hurts so much
Every night I'm losing you in a thousand faces
Now it feels we're as close as strangers

Late night calls and another text
Is this as good as we're gonna get?
Another timezone taking me away from you
Living dreams in fluorescent lights
While you and I are running out of time
But you know that I'll always wait for you

Oh everyday you feel a little bit further away
And I don't know what to say

Are we wasting time talking on a broken line
Telling you I haven't seen your face in ages
I feel like we're as close as strangers
I won't give up even though it hurts so much
Every night I'm losing you in a thousand faces
Now it feels we're as close as strangers

On the phone I can tell that you wanna move on
Through the tears,
I can hear that I shouldn't have gone
Every day, gets harder to stay away from you

So tell me are we wasting time talking on a broken line?
Telling you I haven't seen your face in ages
I feel like we're as close as strangers

Wasting time talking on a broken line
Telling you I haven't seen your face in ages
I feel like we're as close as strangers
I won't give up even though it hurts so much
Every night, I'm losing you in a thousand faces
Now it feels we're as close as strangers

6 months since I went away
I didn't know everything has changed
But tomorrow I'll be coming back to you

    My InterpretationThey are clearly in a relationship that is straining because it is a long distance relationship and they wish they could beside each other and the partner don't know what to do with their relationship but the other person doesn't want to give up even though it hurts so much
