Distance is always hard on couples, whether it’s for just a few days or the situation feels like it’s going to last forever. Lovers who are apart deal with more than just missing each other. They struggle to feel connected as they wait to be together. Here are three songs that represent the commitment, yearning and love often found in long distance relationships:
If you need me call me no matter where you are/ No matter how far don’t worry baby/ Just call my name I’ll be there in a hurry/ You don’t have to worry
This song recognizes that when two lovers reunite, they have to learn to fall in love again. But that also allows him “the joy of rediscovering you.” Awww.
Commitment isn’t about grand gestures. It’s also the daily quiet moments. In this song, he’s “right here waiting for you” and accepts the pain of not being together
