So Far From You


Living away from you

Drives me up the wall at times

The paranoia

__of being away

Pushes me to ask too much

I need to move in

After saving for rings

In order to have a good year

Before an engagement

But we should not have to wait

Until then for me to shape up

Sometimes I fell like a creep

And I don't know how to change me

I want to change my behavior

But I'm still over here during the week

As without-you as ever can be

I trust you more now

But I still have got a long way to go

Before it sounds that way

When I speak with you

From far away

I don't want this to go nowhere

I know I'm having to fuck up

All too often than I should

I only want you to believe in us

It hurts to be too far from my love

I just don't want you to be afraid of me

Because I mean no harm

You're just so far

When there's no car to make you closer

I just want you to be with me
