Distant lover, lover (lover, lover, lover)
So many miles away
 Heaven knows that I long for you
 Every night, every night
I plan, sometimes I dance  Through the day

 Distant lover (lover, lover, lover)
You should think about me
And say a prayer for me
Please, please baby
 Think about me sometimes  Think about me here
Here in misery  Misery 

As I reminisce, oh baby, through our joyful summer together 
The promises we made
All the daily letters
Then, all of the sudden  Everything seemed to explode 
Now, I gaze out my window 
Sugar, down a lonesome road 

 Distant lover (lover, lover, lover)
Sugar, how can you treat my heart 
So mean and cruel 
Sugar, sugar  Treat every moment that I spent with you
I treasure every like it was a precious jewel
Please, Lord have mercy 

Please, come back, baby
Somethin' I wanna say
When you left
You took all of me with you
Do you wanna hear me scream 
Come back and hold me, girl
