TORI AMOS lyrics - China

TORI AMOS
"China"

China all the way to New York
I can feel the distance getting close
You're right next to me but I need an air plane
I can feel the distance as you breathe

And sometimes I think you want me to touch you
Well, how can I when you build the Great Wall around you
In your eyes I saw a future together
Oh you just look away in the distance

China decorates our table
Funny how the cracks don't seem to show
Pour the wine, dear, you say we'll take a holiday
But we never can agree on where to go

And sometimes I think you want to me to touch you
But how can I when you build the Great Wall around you
In your eyes I saw a future together
Oh you just look away in the distance

China all the way to New York
Maybe you got lost in Mexico
You're right next to me, I think that you can hear me
Funny how the distance learns to grow

And sometimes I think you want me to touch you
Well, how can I when you build the Great Wall around you

I can feel the distance
I can feel the distance
I can feel the distance getting close
