From A Distance  Corey Smith

[G]   [Am]    [C]    [D]   [D7]                       

Amanda [G]was a small town blonde haired beauty
She had [Em]Heaven in her eyes and could light up a room
When she [C]walked into view, she was the prettiest [G]girl in my school

And I knew she'd never give me the time of day
No [Em]girls like her ever looked twice my way
She was [C]out of my league
Oh, but that was alr[G]ight with me  [D]   [D7]

Cause I loved her [C]from a distance
Like an angel [G]watching from afar
I never had the nerve [C]to mention
The fire burning [G]in my heart
I knew a [D]boy like me never woulda [C]stood a chance
So I [Am]did the best I could [D]
And I loved her [G]from a distance  [Gsus]      [G]

The Homecoming dance of our senior year
I finally [Em]got my courage up enough to overcome my fears
I would have [C]asked her to dance
But her boyfriend never [G]gave me a chance

Every step of every song they swung the night away
And I [Em]wish I could have wrapped my arms around her waist
And [C]told her how I cared
Instead I only [G]stood there and stared  [D]   [D7]


Cause I loved her [C]from a distance
Like an angel [G]watching from afar
I never had the nerve [C]to mention
The fire burning [G]in my heart
I knew a [D]boy like me never woulda [C]stood a chance
So I [Am]did the best I could [D]
And I loved her [G]from a distance  [Gsus]      [G]
[G]   [Am]    [C]   [D]   [D7]                        
The [G]other night I saw her, first time in years
My [Em]heart skipped a beat when she came walking near
In those [C]faded blue jeans
She's still the prettiest [G]girl I've seen
And much to my surprise she said hello
And that she [Em]loved listening to me singing on the radio
I said that's a [C]funny funny thing
Cause your in every [G]song I sing [D]   [D7]

Yes I've been loving you [C]from a distance
Since you were only s[G]eventeen  [Gsus]      [G]
But I never had the nerve [C]to mention
The feelings flowing in[G]side me
I knew a [D]boy like me never woulda [C]stood a chance
So I poured my [Am]heart into the music that I [D]made [D7]
And I kept loving you [G]from a distance
Oh and [D]now we have a story book [C]romance
And I [Am]know one thing's for [D]sure [D7]
This love can go the [G]distance
