What is the meaning of this sentence? Can anyone explain it to me please:

Although we may seem worlds away, I hope you know I am right there with you.

I tried to google it and I understood that even if we are very far from each other you should know that I am with you by supporting you and caring about you.

    If you edit your question to include more detail as explained in the “Details, Please” link above, we should be able to take it off hold.

  • I should like to say to you that googling stuff cannot explain sentences. What are the parts you do not understand? Please parse the sentence: mark it in segments so you can ask questions about those parts you do not understand.

  • @Lambie I didn't understand the first part of the sentence. Commented Aug 27, 2018 at 22:47
  • @HussamHamdeh What's the source of this sentence? To me, it seems like it should be worlds apart not worlds away, and that it's being used metaphorically rather than literally. But only the context of the sentence can make that known. Commented Aug 27, 2018 at 23:01

Idiomatic expressions:

  • to be worlds away from something

If I live in Brazil and you live in Lebanon, our lives are worlds away from each other.

The usual form of this expression is

* to be worlds apart from something.

  • Science fiction and romance comedies (movies) are worlds apart.

These both mean that two people or things or two people's lives or experiences are very different and/or also very distant from each other. It can be meant literally or figuratively.
