And that's it.

Lyrics:

Verse 1:
Each night I feel the distance that has grown between us,
open up as lonely as the space between the stars.
I wish that I could find a way,
to smash my fists right through these walls,
Of ugliness and emptiness and gently touch your face.

Chorus:
But every time I touch you, you feel so far away.
And every time that you need me, I feel so far away.

Verse 2:
As you lay silently beside me, choking back your tears,
I wonder if you recognize silence now defines us.
Desperately I try to fight this overwhelming sense that I
May never find the strength to change how hopeless
We've become.

Chorus:
And every time that I touch you, you feel so far away.
And every time that you need me, I feel so far away!

Yeah I feel so far away.
I feel so far...

Bridge:
I need to find a way to break this silence...
I need to find a way to break this silence...
I need to find a way to break this silence, that's between us,
So I scream your name. I scream your name.

Chorus:
But every time I touch you, you feel so far away.
And every time that you need me, I feel so far away.
And every time you reach out, you feel me pull away.
And every time I touch you, I touch you, I touch you...
Yeah, you feel so far away.
