"Michelle with One "L"" as written by and Ryan Pope James Suptic....
Same hold from the same hands.
Five years strong, many times over and gone.
It's everything that I have to beat
bridges much stronger and wide.
Fewer and farther between we meet again.
I'll try to do well on my own.
Distance between's never been this far.
I realize that this time was something that I always knew,
only a fool wouldn't see.
Might as well start my drinking days now
if I'm really alone.
It's tempting.
Am I asking too much to keep you at arms length?
Am I asking too much to keep you at home?
Please don't go.
I know it's all gonna be fine
and I know that this is what's right.

    General Commentgood good song. Talking of a strong, old relationship. a good one... one of the relationships that you don't want to blow off, yet, time has taken a toll on it. The narrator finds himself slipping away. be it of ignorance or ignorance, he comes to realize that what he is doing isin't right. Instead of nurturing a good thing, he is crushing it,
    this song is his call back to the way things were, but the feeling of doing "whats right"... to end the relationship.

    General CommentIn this song, TGUK are so powerful and they use so much emotion. I was singing along to this song a couple of days ago and I felt tears starting to build up in my eyes. "Am I asking too much to keep you at arms length? Am I asking too much to keep you at home?"

    General CommentThere is a lot more anger and emotion pouring from 4MM than their newer records. Call it young angst I guess... either way all their music rocks.

    General Commentthis song has so much personal meaning to me.... long distance reltionships aren't easy.. but if you have that connection, its worth the time your apart. "Fewer and farther between we meet again.
    I'll try to do well on my own. Distance between's never been this far." its so true.. just getting through the days untill you can see them again, its a challenge... but in the end you know its right... " I know it's all gonna be fine and I know that this is what's right." its a beautiful thing
