	My name is Loren Noblitt and I bought the new V3 album recently
and thought I'd tab this song out because it sounded really cool...so I
did and here I am to share it with all of you.  I've never done this before so cross your fingers...

  Lyrics:

  if i cannot see you from afar
  look into your eyes, that hint of depth
           hidden inside

  if i cannot hear you from afar
  whisper in my ear, rest assured that
           you are near

  and I now not what it's like
      the aforementioned
  for the distance between us
  as are the stars, i only have you
        in my imagination
        in my imagination
        just to love you
           from afar

  if i cannot kiss you from afar
  press against your lips, taste
  the sweetness of your breath

  if i cannot touch you from afar
  hold you in my arms, keep you warm
        and safe from harm

  though our circumstances
      cause seperation
      in the absence
  there's a presence in my heart
  i will surrender, i'll surrender to my
     quiet contemplation
   my quiet contemplation
  i'll just, i'll just love you
          from afar

     there must be a better way
  a better way of passing the time
  'cause I can't seem to get her out,
      get her out of my mind...
