From A Distance lyrics

(alan jackson/randy travis)

Just another bar
With loud guitars
Smoke and candles burning low
And the same ol' boys
Their backs to the bar
Staring across a crowded floor
Then i hear a familiar sound
Your voice laughing out loud

From a distance i can see you
Dancing slowly with somebody new
But i can't hold you like i want to
But i can love you from a distance

So i take a chair
In a corner somewhere
You can't see me
But i can look at you
And i remember those times
When i looked in your eyes
The way that he now looks at you
Deep down i know it's over
But it hurts me when he's so much closer

From a distance i can see you
Dancing slowly with somebody new
But i can't hold you like i want to
But i can love you from a distance

And if i can't hold you near me
I'll just hold onto your memory

From a distance i can see you
Dancing slowly with somebody new
But i can't hold you like i want to
But i can love you from a distance
I'll always love you from a distance
