Poco - Friends In The Distance Lyrics

Friends in the distance, some kind of strangers up close
Lovers of the last dance, we watch that flame burning low
Who's the winner or the loser, it's too dark for me to see
Only friends in the distance, strangers in danger, you and me

[Chorus:]
You wanna talk about it, I wanna walk around it, I walk the night alone
There's nothing right about it, you're running right around it
Wait out the night alone

Friends in the distance, some kind of strangers up close
Lovers of the last dance, we watch the flame burning low

[Chorus]

Friends in the distance, some kind of strangers up close
Lovers of the last dance, we watch that flame burning low
Tell me who's the winner or the loser, it's too dark for me to see
Only friends in the distance, strangers in danger, you and me
Only friends in the distance, strangers in danger, you and me, you and me

(Friends in the distance, friends in the distance)
