China all the way to New York
I can feel the distance getting close
You're right next to me
But I need an airplane
I can feel the DISTANCE as you breathe

Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
How can I when you build a great WALL around you
In your eyes I saw a future together
You just look away in the distance

China decorates our table
Funny how the CRACKS don't seem to show
Pour the wine dear
You say we'll take a holiday
But we never can agree on where to go

Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
How can I when you build a great WALL around you
In your eyes I saw a future together
You just look away in the distance

China all the way to New York
Maybe you got lost in MEXICO
You're right next to me
I think that you can hear me
Funny how the distance learns to grow

Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
How can I when you build a great WALL around you

I can feel the distance
I can feel the distance
I can feel the distance getting close

    General CommentThis is a great song... It sounds to me like she is using the metaphor of the distance to China to describe her relationship and how they dont seem as close. Then it changes to the china on her table and how it looks perfect but isnt and its "funny how the cracks dont seem to show." Tori Amos is a remarkable musician.
