The Lyrics

From a distance, your eyes look blue - or green
And your hair looks like a nest
From a distance, your face is just a blur
And I realise how much I'm blessed
From a distance, you look pretty good
And you're only over a mile
Away - then you come close, and I see your nose
All your spots light up around your smile.

From a distance, the cars look like a blur
A flash of red and black then it's gone
From a distance, I can't read print that's small
And the hundred people blend into one
From a distance, I really have to strain
And I look stupid when I squint
And you laugh and point, trying to get me annoyed
Yes - I know I look a right bint.

I am watching you - I'm trying to anyway
I am watching you - from a distance
