Alan Jackson – 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
