The Distance Lyrics (lyrics of songs in english)

We pass through these rooms without speaking
Where the light throws a pattern of lace
You say you don't know if you are leaving
But there's no shadow of doubt upon your face
And you tell me there is no other
And I know you well enough to know it's true
And well enough to know you need a lover
Who can give what I never gave to you.

You can say that you were lonely
When I lay right by your side
You can say you saw the distance
When I looked you in the eye
And you can say I never reached you
No matter how many times I tried
But don't say I didn't love you
Cause that's a god damn lie

I emptied the drawer filled with letters
And I bowed my head and cried
No one ever loved me better
There was love in every line
But there were times I didn't hold you
When all you needed was a touch
And there were times when I said nothing
When one word would have been enough

And it seems sometimes like I lost my hand to a machine
In an accident a long time ago
It grabbed at my fingers and tore them off clean
Still I wait for these fingers to grow
And if I had fingers I'd touch your cheek
With a gesture so gentle and fine
I would braid your hair with baby's breath
I would take your hand in mine

You can say that you were lonely
When I lay right by your side
You can say you saw the distance
When I looked you in the eye
And you can say I never reached you
No matter how many times I tried
But don't say I didn't love you
Cause that's a god damn lie

I hear your voice in the morning
Singing softly to yourself
I know you imaging the loving
That awaits you with somebody else
And maybe I will find another
Who will take me in spite of these scars
