Distance makes the day grow longer
Determination ever stronger
Each song we hear
The words seem clear
They’re meant for you and me.
The road between us is shortening
Your voice is close and comforting
Then they call your name
When’s Daddy coming home again
I just whisper we’re one day nearer.
Just know each day we’re counting
Our excitement’s ever mounting
Keep smiling true
‘Cause that’s how we picture you
As the distance makes our hearts grow fonder.
