Half way around the world

Is but 2cm on a map

I need to come and prove to you

I’m not some love sick sap

I’ll cross the ocean, deep and blue

No matter where you are

For I have loved you, oh so dearly

Even from afar

Your almond eyes bewitch me

Sweet lips of rosebud hue

The power of this passion

I long to share with you

A picture cannot tell the truth

Are you really what you seem?

My heart needs proof that you are real

And not some hopeless dream

So here I sit and wait for you

And if we never speak

One day your heart will feel it

And it’s me that you will seek

Tonight I look up skyward

To wish upon a star

That somewhere you are happy

And loving me…….from afar
