Ruel – distance


I heard you on the phone, I had you in mind
I’ve been on the run since you walked through the hallway
Heard it all before, I don’t even mind
I’ll do anything, pull me in and I’m far away

You’re right there
But I won’t say that I’m standin’
I’m right here, when I see you I panic
So scared of the way it might pan out

Chorus:
I don’t want to say this was hard, it was
Trying not to stay but that just made it worse
I’ve been keepin’ my distance
Well, I just wanna know what you’re thinking
I just can’t explain the way it hurts
Now that what we had is gone
I don’t have the words, I’m so bad at playin’ along
I’m saving my feelings
I’ve been keeping my distance

I talked about it last night, thought I was fine
Helped you pack your things, put your bags in the hallway
Maybe in a past lifе, problems aside
We could makе it home, I’d hear you when you’re callin’

You’re right there, yeah
But I won’t say that I’m standin’
I’m right here, when I see you I panic
I’m so scared of the way it might pan out

Chorus:
Well, I don’t want to say this was hard, it was
Trying not to stay but that just made it worse
I’ve been keepin’ my distance
Well, I just wanna know what you’re thinking
I just can’t explain the way it hurts
Now that what we had is gone
I don’t have the words, I’m so bad at playin’ along
Saving my feelings
I’ve been keeping my distance

Bridge:
I’ve been feeling so high on the way down
Hope I get another chance, ’cause I know I wouldn’t
Wouldn’t let you pass by, wouldn’t even think twice
Let you out of my mind, I don’t even know why
I’ve been feeling so high on the way down
Said you treated me bad, ’cause you know I couldn’t
You know I couldn’t

Chorus:
Well, I don’t want to say this was hard, it was
Trying not to stay but that just made it worse
I’ve been keepin’ my distance
I just wanna know what you’re thinking
I just can’t explain the way it hurts
Now that what we had is gone
I don’t have the words, I’m so bad at playin’ along
Saving my feelings
I’ve been keeping my distance
