View Full Version : The Hardest Thing I've EVER Done!

Well heck, sometimes it's easy to turn your feelings about someone or something into a song. I've found that a couple of times, isn't hasn't been too hard! But this...was the hardest thing ever. Still not perfect...not a song. But I'll give it a shot anyway! So..."Give me everythin' ya got..alright?"
<br>From A Distance
<br>Standing next to you in a crowded room
<br>I’m thousands of miles away from reality
<br>As my mind drifts further away from this place
<br>I see you as only a stranger would see
<br>On the street corner, our eyes may never meet
<br>But I watch you, and anticipate your every move
<br>I struggle to read your thoughts, as one could do
<br>Feeling as if our minds are one, me and you
<br>Though we’ve never so much as met
<br>I feel closer to you than anyone in my life
<br>The humble words in your songs
<br>Diminish my worries and strife
<br>If only I could tell you these things
<br>I firmly believe my life would change…in an instant
<br>But for now, I’ll continue to hold you with my eyes
<br>Only knowing you…from a distance.
<br>I know, there are so many of us…we’re hard to tell apart
<br>But way you are with us, how you make us feel
<br>Giving each of us something to remember… to cherish
<br>Just a few things that make you so personable…and so real.
<br>Through the best times and the worst
<br>You’ve always kept your gracious smile
<br>It’s what brought me here in the first place…
<br>And I’ll never leave…even if you do, for a little while
<br>And it’s hard to explain, but I’ll try to help you see
<br>What the reasons are, for your not meeting me
<br>I’m petrified of what might happen if our paths ever cross
<br>Would we meet again? If not, I would be lost.
<br>All this time, my reason for being is you
<br>And if the meeting is the climax…what’s left to look forward to?
<br>If only we could tell you these things…
<br>Try and make you understand
<br>That in the eyes of us Believers
<br>You’re more than just a man…
<br>Lucky ones who met you, will revere their tales
<br>To those who haven’t gotten their chance…
<br>And maybe it’s because of these fears they never will
<br>But they’ll always believe…only… from a distance.

<br>Rach, ya know it doesn't need my stamp, as Jason put it, cuz it's awesome and it's from the heart. That's all you need.
<br>But if it could even possibly make you feel better, I love it! It's prime, grade A, beauty in words! :)
<br>Keep it up and I'll talk to you later!
