How far is too far?
They say numbers don’t lie
But so do our feelings
How does someone know it’s something you can’t pull off?
You can’t reach, you can’t hold, you can’t keep
“He wouldn’t hear you from here.”
I didn’t know love has to have hands
I didn’t know love has to hear, has to see
When I saw you, I didn’t remember how far was the distance between us    
Between our love
But know you don’t have to be here
To take my hand
To brush off my hair
To kiss me on my right cheek
To be able to feel your love
You stay where you are
And I’ll be where I am
And we’ll love each other
Against the light and its shadows
Beyond the highest mountain and longest bridge
I’ll love you more for not being near
Because that’s when you needed it the most
