lyrics

Sister’s walkin’ home from work alone
tryin’ to talk sense into her old cell phone
and daddy’s drifted off again, ain’t been home for days.
Mama shouts as she walks out the front door,
late for work again, that’s just one more,
and junior’s still in bed—lately he’s lost in a haze.

The shortest distance between two hearts
The shortest distance between two hearts
The shortest distance between two hearts is love.

Sister breaks down at the corner store
counting out change, she thought she had more
wonderin’ when and if she can ever rise above.
Junior cuttin’ through the alleyway
out of work since the beginning of May
and every day feels more like push comin’ down to shove…

The shortest distance between two hearts
The shortest distance between two hearts
The shortest distance between two hearts is love.

Please R - E - C - E - I - V - E my love
Please G - I - V - E, won’t you please, sweet love.

Sister’s late out on a Friday night
on the phone, crossin’ against the light
never saw the taxi driver turnin’ right, slow-mo…
Junior sleepin’ in an ER chair,
when she comes to he wants to be right there,
why does life got to be so unfair, who knows?

The shortest distance between two hearts
The shortest distance between two hearts
The shortest distance between two hearts is love.

Please R - E - C - E - I - V - E my love
Please G - I - V - E, won’t you please, sweet love.
