"At the tone, please record your message. When you are finished recording, you may hang up, or press 1 for more options."

I look across the distance
The bits and bytes between us
Looking at the time it'd take
To drop everything and head that way
I melt a hole in my phone screen
Waiting for reply so intently
It's hard to be present here
When my everything is nowhere near

Separate beings, the want to unite but
Distance keeps us away
Desperate pining for tactile connection
But it leads me astray
Take my feelings and knock on the front door
But it keeps me away
Send a message across all the distance
Praying you'll find a way

Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?
Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true
Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?
Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true

Stay with me (Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?)
Oh, rest your weary head (Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true)
We may feel so far away (Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?)
But we can throw that gap away, if you'll just (Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true)

I'll fall asleep and dream here with you
Three thousand miles at ten and one
A wire-crossed and tangled romance
Some voicemail's all I'm askin' for (Are you gonna pick up? Are you there? Do you care? Do you care?)

Separate feelings I want to unite, but
I can't make it okay
And I know you've tried to get closer
But I'll still push you away (Come closer)
Pulled away by the distance between us
From a single mistake
And although I've tried to get closer
It all still keeps me awake (Come closer)

Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?
Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true
Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?
Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true

Stay with me (Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?)
Oh, and rest your weary head (Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true)
We may feel so far away (Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?)
But we can throw that gap away, if you'll just (Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true)
Stay with me (Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?)
Oh, it's more than just a dream (Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true)
Though it's hard for me to say (Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?)
I know you're not so far away, if you'll just (Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true)

It's so hard for me to trust your heart
That you love me even when we're apart
But I know it's true
How could I not believe in you?
God, the miles are more than I can bare
But I have to try if you'll be there
The day I land between your arms
Darling don't be scared, it ain't that far!
(Hey!)

(Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?)
(Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true)
(Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?)
(Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true)
(Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?)
(Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true)

Jamie Paige (Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?)
Oh, that's my fucking name (Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true)
I am real and I'm okay (Can I still be close to you? Can I still get close to you?)
And I will live another day! (Yeah, I can still get close to you, and we can keep this feeling true)
