Can you feel the love tonight?
I know I was able to,
as we drove to the beach on the cold highway in late August.
Your song was on the radio
It was a slow sad song,
about a lonely soul who had no valentines.
I guess that’s why sad songs say so much.
There’s something about the way you look tonight,
that makes me realize you’re the one.
I don’t believe the end will come for us,
despite the sacrifice of long distance.
“Don’t go breaking my heart,” I tell you,
as you say “I couldn’t if I tried.”
Your healing hands embrace me,
and I whisper softly,
“Hold me closer, tiny dancer.”
The Indian sunset signaled it was time to go,
a goodbye soon to follow.
But we’ve said goodbye before,
and I’m still standing.
Long distance relationships are the reason why
I guess that’s why they call it the blues.
