Amanda was a small town blonde haired beauty
She had Heaven in her eyes and could light up a room
When she walked into view, she was the prettiest girl in my school
And I knew she'd never give me the time of day
No girls like her ever looked twice my way
She was out of my league
Oh, but that was alright with me

Cause I loved her from a distance
Like an angel watching from afar
I never had the nerve to mention
The fire burning in my heart
I knew a boy like me never woulda stood a chance
So I did the best I could
And I loved her from a distance

The Homecoming dance of our senior year
I finally got my courage up enough to overcome my fears
I would have asked her to dance
But her boyfriend never gave me a chance
Every step of every song they swung the night away
And I wish I could have wrapped my arms around her waist
And told her how I cared
Instead I only stood there and stared

But I kept loving her from a distance
Like an angel watching from afar
I never had the nerve to mention
The fire burning in my heart
I knew a boy like me never woulda stood a chance
So I did the best I could
And I loved her from a distance

The other night I saw her, first time in years
My heart skipped a beat when she came walking near
In those faded blue jeans
She's still the prettiest girl I've seen
And much to my surprise she said hello
And that she loved listening to me singing on the radio
I said that's a funny funny thing
Cause your in every song I sing

Yes I've been loving you from a distance
Since you were only seventeen
But I never had the nerve to mention
The feelings flowing inside me
I knew a boy like me never woulda stood a chance
So I poured my heart into the music that I made
And I kept loving you from a distance

Oh and now we have a story book romance
And I know one thing's for sure
This love can go the distance
