Lyrics

Craving your love again, I’m in over my head, 

Over my head

It’s bad enough you went and lead me on

But then the bug, it bit you, too

You turned around and said, “I love you”

But what am I supposed to do if I never meant it?

 

Never thought it’d be like this when I got your kiss, 

Got your kiss

And now you’re always waiting on my call

Suffocating, I’ve had enough

But still I’m craving all your love

‘Cause finally I got what I want and I can’t give it up

 

Babe I’m blind, I’m blind

To what’s right before my eyes

I take a step back

And that’s when I realize:

 

That all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

Yeah all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

Because my heart on my sleeve’s got you falling for me

But I’m in too deep you won’t let me be

I’m sorry, baby,

All we really need is distance

 

You keep blowing up my phone with that lame ringtone, 

I hate that ringtone

But not as much as these jeans you make me wear

Gotta wait on you day and night

And when I’m not, we’re in a fight

Don’t matter which one of us is right, I’m the one that’s sorry

I can’t even play this tune I wrote about you, 

And play it for you

Without you thinking I was singing ‘bout someone else

Your jealously puts me on a train

A thousand miles the other way

Out of sight and out of mind and I will be just fine

 

‘Cause all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

Yeah all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

We’re like the night and the day with the games we play

Better walk away now or stay this way

Baby, I mean it

All we really need is distance

 

Oh we’re blind, we’re blind

To what’s right before our eyes

Take a step back, take a step back, take a step back

And then it’s all we’ll realize 

 

That all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

(Distance from my heart)

Yeah all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

(Oh)

Because my heart on my sleeve’s got you falling for me

But I’m in too deep you won’t let me be

I’m sorry, baby,

It’s all we really need!

‘Cause all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

(Ah)

Yeah all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

(All we need is a little distance!)

We’re like the night and the day with the games we play

Better walk away now or stay this way

Baby, I mean it

All we really needed

Yeah, all we ever, all we really need is a little distance
