King, Emily - Distance Lyrics




Hey love time to get up
I think you’ve been sleeping too long
My day started when you were still yawning
One room just ain’t enough
When it’s two folks trying to get along but it’s hard to leave you alone
Oh love is always better
When we take time to get back to who we are when we are apart
Distance makes the heart grow
Even when I’m lonely I’m happy knowing that your love is never far
When we are apart distance makes the heart
It makes the leaves on the trees fall
It makes the hours in the day long
Makes me wanna clear my head
Find a little cafe and write the words to a song
And I know that I’m still free
Be anywhere that I wanna be
Maybe get dressed up
Wear something real pretty that you ain’t never seen
Oh love is always better
When we take time to get back to who we are when we are apart
Distance makes the heart grow
Even when I’m lonely I’m happy knowing that your love is never far
When we are apart distance makes the heart
When you love it makes it hard
When you trust it makes it hard
When you call it makes it hard
We’re alone when we’re apart
In the middle of a fight
Walk away to make it right
Where we go we’re never far
In the light or in the dark
On a plane up in the stars
In a movie or at the bar
Home alone or out to tea
Look to your heart and think of me
I wanna love you don’t wanna try
To change the pace of your life
We get together we make it good
We get together oh oh oh
Hey love time to get up
I think you’ve been sleeping too long
My day started when you were still yawning

  43. Erik Surbaugh

    This little bit of musical genius: "Find a little gap there and write the words to a song..." The song is beautiful, both in composition and execution. A touch of Minnie Ripperton, more than a bit of Prince, and a great message.

    Her vocal styling, phraseology and the piano chords have Prince written all over them. The hushed background singers. Yet, her own expression. OMG man why'd you have to GO?! *tears* her sound just reminds me of how phenomenal he was. Brings joy and tears....Awesome song and talent.

    Hey love time to get up
    I think you’ve been sleeping too long
    My day started when you were still yawning
    One room just ain’t enough
    When it’s two folks trying to get along
    but it’s hard to leave you alone
    Oh
    love is always better
    When we take time to get back to who we are
    when we are apart
    Distance makes the heart
    grow
    Even when I’m lonely
    Happy knowing that your love is never far
    When we are apart
    distance makes the
    heart
    It makes the leaves on the trees fall
    It makes the hours in the day long
    Makes me wanna clear my head find a little cafe and write the words to a song
    And I know that I’m still free
    Be anywhere that I wanna be
    Maybe get dressed up
    Wear something real pretty that you ain’t never seen
    Oh
    love is always better
    When we take time to get back to who we are
    when we are apart
    Distance makes the heart
    grow
    Even when I’m lonely
    Happy knowing that your love is never far
    When we are apart
    distance makes the heart

    &&&&&&&&&
    #########
    &&&&&&&&&

    When you love it
    it makes it hard
    When you trust it
    it makes it hard
    When you call
    it makes it hard
    We’re alone when
    we’re apart
    In the middle of a fight
    walk away
    to make it right
    Where we go
    never far
    In the light
    or in the dark
    On a plane
    up in the stars
    In a movie
    or at the bar
    Home alone
    or out to tea
    Look to your heart and think of me
    I wanna love you
    don’t wanna try
    To change the pace of your life
    We get together
    we make it good
    We get together
    oh oh oh
    Hey love time to get up
    I think you’ve been sleeping too long
    My day started when you were still yawning

  86. janae.

    Listen I know I'm super late on only hearing this song this year but I'm convinced it should be considered a timeless classic. Everything about it from the lyrics to the tone of her voice to the musical arrangement is perfect to me. It has won my heart.
