Song Description

Unconditional love is a lot better when it doesn't have to be unconditional. Sometimes even though we do the right thing ,life doesn't work the way wish no matter how hard we wish

Story Behind the Song

Meeting my daughter for the first time when she was 12 and becoming part of her life as she turned 15 , I pressed her to go and paid for her college. Now married with 3 beautiful children she says we never "bonded" and I mean nothing to her. The right thing (I talk about in the song)was I didn't allow her mother with two kids to slip into poverty instead supported best I could and even put both girls through college.( this inspite of a broken ankle that wouldn't heal as long as I stayed on it) I would rather be hated than to mean nothing..

Lyrics

At a distance By Melvin John Harvill

There's nothing I can say , or ever do
That could make me be,
anything to you
My child kept from me, at a dis tance

When my help was called , I gave my all
But you could not see ,
what you mean to me
So I watch and I worried, at a dis tance
Chorus
At a dis tance I observed ,
as you bloomed from a girl
And as you came wise, drifting from my eyes Turning to go,
your own separate way I always thought ,
you'd come to see
The script written ,
long before you and me
Doing right is sometime's ,
not good enough
verse
Now as the years ,
continue to pass
The hurt still cries ,
the pain it does last
and torments me ,
at a dis tance

If for one last time ,
you would hear my voice
The source of this pain,
was never my choice
We both got burned ,
by the dis tance
Chorus
If words of a poet ,
be my only remains
My destiny is ,
more of the same
Caring for you ,
at a dis tance

Repeat last verse
