Intro

G  Am  C   D  D7


       G
Amanda was a small town blonde haired beauty 
        Em
She had Heaven in her eyes and could light up a room 
         C                                       G
When she walked into view, she was the prettiest girl in my school 

And I knew she'd never give me the time of day 
   Em
No girls like her ever looked twice my way 
        C
She was out of my league
                    G             D  D7 
Oh, but that was alright with me 

                  C
Cause I loved her from a distance 
              G
Like an angel watching from afar 
                      C
I never had the nerve to mention 
                 G
The fire burning in my heart
         D                        C 
I knew a boy like me never woulda stood a chance 
     Am                   D
So I did the best I could 
                G                Gsus  G
And I loved her from a distance 


The Homecoming dance of our senior year 
          Em
I finally got my courage up enough to overcome my fears 
             C
I would have asked her to dance 
                        G
But her boyfriend never gave me a chance 

Every step of every song they swung the night away 
      Em
And I wish I could have wrapped my arms around her waist 
    C
And told her how I cared 
               G                       D  D7
Instead I only stood there and stared 


                  C
Cause I loved her from a distance 
              G
Like an angel watching from afar 
                      C
I never had the nerve to mention 
                 G
The fire burning in my heart
         D                        C 
I knew a boy like me never woulda stood a chance 
     Am                   D
So I did the best I could 
                G                Gsus  G
And I loved her from a distance 

G  Am  C  D  D7


    G
The other night I saw her, first time in years 
   Em
My heart skipped a beat when she came walking near 
         C
In those faded blue jeans 
                          G
She's still the prettiest girl I've seen 

And much to my surprise she said hello 
             Em
And that she loved listening to me singing on the radio 
                C
I said that's a funny funny thing 
                    G           D  D7
Cause your in every song I sing 

                         C
Yes I've been loving you from a distance 
                     G         Gsus  G
Since you were only seventeen 
                          C
But I never had the nerve to mention 
                       G
The feelings flowing inside me 
         D                        C
I knew a boy like me never woulda stood a chance 
               Am                          D    D7
So I poured my heart into the music that I made 
                      G
And I kept loving you from a distance 
       D                        C
Oh and now we have a story book romance 
      Am                   D    D7
And I know one thing's for sure 
                     G
This love can go the distance
