From the recording A Girl Down In Mexico
I’m in Atlanta; you’re in Nashville
I could move, but it wouldn’t matter
’Cause I’d still be standin’ still
It’s like gazin’ on a far-away star
It’s not the space; it’s the distance
How far apart we really are
While it’s just two inches on the map
It might as well be the other side of the world
Is there anything I can do to close the gap
Between your heart and me, girl?
I know you’re torn, just not enough
I’m in your heart, but he’s there with you
And his love is hangin’ tough
All I can do, try to get through
Try to move a little closer
Please let me show my love to you
Now I’ve grown so very tired of staring at the map
So don’t be surprised if I move next door
What can I do to close the gap?
Just two inches on the map
