*Note: This is a song lyric, the bolded section is the Chorus
What's this distance between us?
A gulf that we cannot cross?
Why does it seem forever?
Are we truly lost?
I've known fear - know it now,
Now it's at you too.
But, think on it a minute
You know what to do ... say hello
Open your hand if you can
Don't be so afraid to let go.
All the miles between us fade,
To be gone when you say hello.
Ain't no crime in privates, no.
It's in passionate pain.
Let it get its grips on you
You'll find it loves to go again
We are less than the sum of our parts
That's where we start
There's no need to heed what shows,
All you got to do is say hello
Don't be afraid
That's not the song being played
The heavy hand is better stayed
Don't be afraid ... just say hello ...
