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 song has alot of figurative language in it. I really love that about Tori's songs because its interesting to find out what she means, like a puzzle, or even form your own personal meaning. This song uses references to different kinds of "china" several times. First in reference to the country of china, then "....when you build a great wall around you," could also bring to mind the Great Wall of China, and then the reference to china dishes. It's great.
