And all I have to do is kiss the air
To know that far away you’re kissing me
I close my eyes and know that you are there
I do not need to open them to see
And all I have to do is stretch my hand
To touch your skin and pull you close to me
I do not have to think to understand
That when I close my eyes the World is free
I wish that closing eyes could make it real
That in a blink I’d have you next to me
A body I can see and taste and feel
My lover you’d be all you need to be
  And yet in dreams I kiss your lips and know
  That far away is somewhere I can go
