Emotional Distance

EMOTIONAL DISTANCE - Written by Carroll Bryant 


You never seem to let me see you cry
You turn away and let the tears roll
Down your face each drop falls
And I can't seem to let it go

You keep your distance from me
This distance is emotionally 
And I just don't understand it

Haven't I been good to you?
Am I not a fine enough man?
Haven't I done the things you want me to?
Still, you run away when you can

You never seem to let me hold you close
Even in the darkest night
I try my best as the story goes
You only put up a fight 

You keep your distance from me
This distance is emotionally 
And I just don't understand it

You keep your distance from me
Going through the motions physically
Is this the way you planned it?

I know you keep his memory inside
Shutting me out in the process
To secret places where you and him hide
You and me equals loveless

Haven't I been good to you?
Am I not a fine enough man?
Haven't I done the things you want me to?
Still, you run away when you can

Haven't I been good to you?
Do all the things that you want me to?
Yet in my love you still can't believe
You turn away from me

I turn away from you

I realize now I'm just hanging on
You let it go so soon and easily
Even though I continue to completely refuse 
You still turn away from me

Haven't I been good to you?
Do all the things that you want me to?
Still somehow I can't believe
You turn away from me
You turn away from me
You turn away from me

I turn away from you
