Distantly Loving You

Distantly Loving You

This song was written in the late summer of 2008. It’s about going from being really close with someone to practically not even knowing them at all, but still being able to read through all the awkwardness and calling them out on acting weird, and telling them that you are there for them , when they are ready to stop acting like a victim. The lyrics are honest, and flowed pretty easily out of me. Sometimes when it’s hard for me to put my feelings into words, it helps me to get them out better when it’s in song form.
Here are the Lyrics AND Guitar Chords for your covering pleasure, and I do encourage you to!
Please send me your covers to Info@JustinasWorld.com for a chance to be featured on my site!

Verse 1: G, Cadd9, D, Cadd9
You’re a wounded dog
You hide it well
But I’m smart
You think that I can’t tell
When you roll your eyes
at every frog i kiss
You’re a game of chess
I’m sitting here
Overanalyzing possibilities
As to which move would be best

Pre 1: Cadd9, D, Em, Cadd9, D
So I steer clear of anything affectionate
But I keep near to let you know

Chorus: G, Cadd9, D, Cadd9
I’m here when you want me
You know where to find me
You’re 2 steps ahead but you’re always behind me
And the ghost of this thing will always ring in our ears
And a kiss on the forehead is always enough
cuz you know that’s my weakness
I’m usually tough
And it’s all that I need, to keep me standing here
Distantly loving you

Verse 2: G, Cadd9, D, Cadd9
You’re a twisted arm
And I break my back just to force these roots back
Through their cracks
Cuz this thing we’ve built is a life we’re taking here
You’re a foggy day, consuming me
You’re a paint chipped flaking
corner street sign
you’ll point the way the day the air is clear…hopefully

Pre 2: Cadd9, D, Em, Cadd9, D
so I keep faith and pray for the fortunate
And I keep near to let you know

Chorus: G, Cadd9, D, Cadd9
I’m here when you want me
You know where to find me
You’re 2 steps ahead but you’re always behind me
And the ghost of this thing will always ring in our ears
And a kiss on the forehead is always enough
cuz you know that’s my weakness
I’m usually tough
And it’s all that I need, to keep me standing here
Distantly loving you

Bridge: A, Cadd9, , A, Cadd9, D
we’ve jumped with our hands tied behind our backs
and I know it’s hard , know it’s hard
Getting back on track

Repeat Chorus 2x
