--------------------------- Chorus x2: like the others one ---------------------------- ---------------------------- Solo: power chords until fade out -------------------------- Santiago Rodriguez ( Maracay, Venezuela The Distance (jon bon jovi, Richie Sambora, Demond Child) There's a train out in the distance, destination still unknown Far away where no one's waiting, so far from home, so far from home There's a rose outside your window, the first snow is falling down Like that lonesome whistle blowing I keep on going, keep on going... Chorus: Close your eyes and see my blue skies breaking through these dark clouds You are the light In my mind I see your red dress and your arms are reaching through the night I'll never give up the fight I'll go the distance There's a thread that runs between us pulling 'cross this great divide It's only there for the believers Don't stop believing, don't stop believing Chorus: Close your eyes and see my blue skies breaking through these dark clouds You are the light In my mind I see your red dress and your arms are reaching through the night I'll never give up the fight I'll go the distance, I'll go the distance There's a neverending story that begins with you and I Like the rose outside your window Don't let it die, don't let it die Chorus: Close your eyes and see my blue skies breaking through these dark clouds You are the light In my mind I see you
