Not Within Arms Length

This song is by Poison The Well and appears on the album The Opposite Of December... A Season Of Separation (1999).

Not within arm's length

I'd sever the stars from the sky
And place them in your hands
If I thought another wish
They'd see the light of day

But you stand (but you stand...)
Beyond the sun (beyond the sun...)
Beyond the reach (beyond the reach...)
Of just a friend

Maybe if I grew wings-
Maybe if you lost yours
These words would flow like water
If you'd let them scrape your heart

But you stand (but you stand...)
Beyond the sun (beyond the sun...)
Beyond the reach (beyond the reach...)
Of just a friend

Not within arm's length
Embedded within
My concise effort
A silent cry

I receive no comfort and as I collapse
We remain nothing more than friends

As I hold my breath
A throat full of cement
I'm disgusted by repetition
I accept this curse of friendship

I receive no comfort and as I collapse
We remain nothing more than friends

As I hold my breath
A throat full of cement
I'm disgusted by repetition
I accept this curse of friendship

Your friend,
Friendship
