The Distance Between You And Me

This song is by Dwight Yoakam and appears on the album If There Was A Way (1990) and on the album Dwightyoakamacoustic.net (2000).

Take a rock, tie a rope
Throw it down in the sea
Let it fall to the bottom
Nobody knows how deep
Stare real hard through the water
And you might just perceive
The distance between you and me
Yeah, the distance between you and me

Take a map of the world
And measure with your hands
All of the miles
Across all of the land
Write it down, add it up
And you might understand
About the distance between you and me
Yeah, the distance between you and me

I lie awake and hear you breathing
Only inches from me in this bed
Not much space but it's all that we needed
To live alone now that our love is dead

I lie awake and hear you breathing
Only inches from me in this bed
Not much space but it's all that we needed
To live alone now that our love is dead

Climb the earth's tallest mountain
To where it reaches the sky
Take a gun fire a bullet
Straight up out of sight
Where it stops in the heavens
Well that ain't half as high
As the distance between you and me
As the distance between you and me
