Lyrics WE'RE FAR APART
BUT OUR HEARTS ARE HOLDING HANDS!

verse 1 - male vocal:
YES, IT'S HARD TO SIT HERE
BY MYSELF EACH NIGHT,
NOT KNOWING WHERE YOU ARE
OR WHEN
I'LL HOLD YOU TIGHT.
YES, I HAVE TEMPTATIONS
AND SOMETIMES
IT'S PRETTY ROUGH
BUT TEMPTATION'S NEVER STRONG
AS OUR SWEET LOVE.

Chorus female & male vocal:
'CAUSE OUR HEARTS ARE HOLDING HANDS
ACROSS THE MILES,
AND EVEN THOUGH WE'RE LONELY
WE CAN SMILE,
male vocal:
'CAUSE I KNOW
YOU'RE MY WOMAN,
female vocal:
AND I KNOW
YOU'RE MY MAN.
both:
WE'RE FAR APART
BUT OUR HEARTS ARE HOLDING HANDS.

verse 2 - female vocal:
TODAY
A STRANGER
LOOKED MY WAY
AND FLASHED HIS GOLD,
AND SAID HE'S BUY ME
ALL THE TREASURES
I COULD HOLD.
I TOOK OUT
YOUR LAST LETTER
WHEN YOU WROTE
YOU LOVED ME SO
AND THERE
I FOUND THE STRENGTH
TO TELL HIM NO.

Chorus female & male vocal:
'CAUSE OUR HEARTS ARE HOLDING HANDS
ACROSS THE MILES,
AND EVEN THOUGH
WE'RE LONELY
WE CAN SMILE,
male vocal:
'CAUSE I KNOW
YOU'RE MY WOMAN,
female vocal:
AND I KNOW
YOU'RE MY MAN.
both:
WE'RE FAR APART
BUT OUR HEARTS ARE HOLDING HANDS.

AND COME WHAT MAY,
OUR HEARTS ARE HOLDING HANDS.
