Keep Your Distance Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Oh, if I cross your path again
Who knows where or who knows when
On some mountain without number
On some highway without end

Don't grasp my hand and say
"Fate has brought you here today"
Oh, fate is only foolin' with us, friend

Keep your distance, keep your distance
Oh, when I feel you close to me, what can I do but fall
Keep your distance, keep your distance
Oh, with us it must be all or none at all

Oh, it's a desperate game we play
Throw our souls, our lives, away
On wounds that can't be mended
And debts that can't be paid

Oh, I played and I got stung
Now, I'm biting back my tongue
And sweepin' out the footprints where I strayed

Keep your distance, keep your distance
Oh, when I feel you close to me, what can I do but fall
Keep your distance, keep your distance
Oh, with us it must be all or none at all
Oh, with us it must be all or none at all

Keep your distance, oh, keep your distance
