So far but so near.

He's there, I'm here.

He feels so far but we are oh so near.

He pushes me away on a normal day, but cries with me when I'm in pain.

He feels so far but we are so near, and now I'm left just standing here.

He knows what I feel, he knows what I think, he's in my blood like a poisonous drink.

He feels so far but he is so near, so why am I just standing here?

He saved me on my darkest day, when I could no longer see the way.

He feels so far, but he is so near, so why can't I run to him?

He hides behind a shield he has created, but still he has me so sedated.

He feels so far, but he is so near, so why can't I just get through to him?

He locks himself away everyday, constantly replaying his happy days, slowly slipping away.

He feels so far, but he is so near, I feel I owe a debt to him.

He helps me through my puzzled life, he's taken on my own fight.

He feels so far, but he is so near, I fight for him, my reasons unclear.

He knows me well but I don't know him, I am almost killing him.

He feels so far, but he is so near, he's there and I'm here. I hate being so far from him.

I'm close enough for him to touch, but he's to far for me to know. He's given up his life for me, his reasons I cannot see.

He feels so far, but he is so near, I hate the feeling and wish he was here.

Side by side with my soul, where he desires to be and where he belongs. Though this has taken from his life a heavy toll, I am the one who is to blame for all.

He feels so far, but he is so near. He's trapped there and I stand useless here.
