This is a hopeful song about the moment we all wish would happen, but never really does. - David


Every time I see you boy
I sit and stare, eyes wide
Somehow it always feels like
The first and last time

We've always wanted something more
Never at the same time
That's why I'm frozen, standing still
As your lips move toward mine
I try to close my eyes

We are one inch away
Shocked that it's not too late
I never imagined after all our chances I'd finally say
We are one inch away

We've been alive and we've been dead
We've been in love, we've been friends
We've given up hope, whispered, "the end"
Then circled back again

There was nothing new about tonight
'Til something in your eyes
Caused the flame to reignite
Now they're an inch from mine
I won't pull away this time

I thought that you'd be the one
Who got away from me
I thought I'd be the one who
Got away from you
