14 Now it's my turn To go across the ocean, And it's your turn To stay at home. Time is my space for getting closer, Space is my time for getting close; My-turn-your-turn To count the different hours, Your-turn-my-turn To count the miles, So close in space, apart in time, but now Apart in space, So close in time; The closer space -- the longer time to challenge: Your miles of time, My time of miles; The closer time -- the longer way to travel, Again to make us Coincide.
