The Distance
(jon bon jovi, Richie Sambora, Demond Child)


There's a train out in the distance, destination still unknown
Far away where no one's waiting, so far from home, so far from home

There's a rose outside your window, the first snow is falling down
Like that lonesome whistle blowing
I keep on going, keep on going...

Chorus: 
Close your eyes and see my blue skies breaking through these dark clouds
You are the light
In my mind I see your red dress and your arms are reaching through the night
I'll never give up the fight
I'll go the distance

There's a thread that runs between us pulling 'cross this great divide
It's only there for the believers
Don't stop believing, don't stop believing

Chorus: 
Close your eyes and see my blue skies breaking through these dark clouds
You are the light
In my mind I see your red dress and your arms are reaching through the night
I'll never give up the fight
I'll go the distance, I'll go the distance

There's a neverending story that begins with you and I
Like the rose outside your window
Don't let it die, don't let it die

Chorus: 
Close your eyes and see my blue skies breaking through these dark clouds
You are the light
In my mind I see you
