Impossibly Distant (The Tides) 

So I guess they don’t tell you 

That the ground will just fall from your feet.  

And I guess they don’t warn you,  

About the hell that you feel when you’re free.  

When I kissed you goodbye 

A lifetime ago, 

Fighting the waves of pain. 

Thought I’d always be back  

Wearing white and black,  

But baby I traveled too far.  

Only trouble in this water,  

Not a bridge can I build with my hands.  

Godforsaken in this water, 

Edge of love,  

Edge of us.

 

Searching for...

Part of your

Hazel eyed dreams. 

Former life

Fading right  

Out of my reach. 

Cause I wanna hold you at least in my heart 

Remember the nights that we had at the start 

And I wanna hold you at least in my heart 

Is it possible?  

To fight the tides.  

To fight the tides.

 

Oh I try to remember  

How you looked at that Avondale show  

And that Christmas together 

Holding you in that red and green light 

But I wandered the world,  

And I drifted away.  

And I put a few miles on my heart.  

I met 10,000 girls, maybe 10,000 drinks. 

And I’m drowning here, yelling for you.

 

Dark stars in the night 

Hope burns for you and I.  

Only trouble in this water,  

Not a bridge can I build with my hands 

Only struggle in this water  

Edge of love,  

Edge of us.

 

Waiting for... 

Sight of shore

You on the beach.  

Our past life  

Fading right,  

Out of my reach 

Cause I wanna hold you at least in my heart 

Remember the nights that we had at the start 

And I wanna hold you at least in my heart 

Is it possible?  

To fight the tides.  

To fight the tides. 

 

Incredibly Close

All that I do, is dream of you.  

All that I say, denies today. 

 

Fantasize. 

Every night.  

Hear your voice in the dark. 

You’re on the screen. 

A Memory.  

I’m just foolin' my heart.

Don’t you know I deplore you? 

Don’t you know I adore you? 

Got me walkin’ in circles,  

With no getaway. 

 

All that I do, is dream of you.  

All that I say, denies today.  

Like I ever had a choice, 

Chained to love.  (Ready for a chance)

Such a terrifying joy.  

Your electric touch. 

Just a dream away.

 

In the fog 

In the maze

I can feel you’re close.  

(And) In her eyes 

Through her touch  

I can feel your spirit.  

No redemption or logic.  

Yes I know I’m, too tragic.  

Forty thousand wrong voices  

And they rise, rise, rise, rise.

 

All I ever wanted was for it to work.  

And I tried so hard darling. 

But in the end,  

The man that you needed, wasn’t me.  

And yet my heart still won’t let go.  

I’m stuck.  

Impossibly distant, and incredibly close.

 

All that I do, is scream for you.  

All that I say, destroys today.  

And we live,  

In my mind.  

And we live,  

In a perfect love,  

Just a dream away.
