Distant Lover

Distant Lover

Thelma Houston

Distant lover, lover
(Lover, lover, lover)
So many miles away
Heaven knows that I long for you every night, every night
I plan, sometimes I dance through the day

Distant lover
(Lover, lover, lover)
You should think about me and say a prayer for me
Please, please baby, think about me sometimes
Think about me here, here in misery, misery

As I reminisce, oh baby, through our joyful summer together
The promises we made, all the daily letters
Then, all of the sudden everything seemed to explode
Now, I gaze out my window, sugar, down a lonesome road

Distant lover
(Lover, lover, lover)
Sugar, how can you treat my heart so mean and cruel
Sugar, sugar, treat every moment that I spent with you
I treasure every like it was a precious jewel

Please, Lord have mercy, please, come back, baby
Something I wanna say when you left
You took all of me with you, do you wanna hear me scream?
Come back and hold me, girl
