So Close

Do you have a song that tell your story so beautifully, evoke emotions so deep within you?

This one does it for me. The melody takes me away, wandering along the memory lanes of yesteryears, thinking of you. There you are, so close. So close that I can hear the joyousness in your laughter and your voice. So close that I can embrace you in my arms, feeling your warmth of your skin and smelling the scent of your hair. But the lyrics in the end reveal the tender longing and sadness of our story, so gracefully simple and brutally honest. More importantly, it is painfully true. The last line just nails it!

So Close - Jon McLaughlin
You’re in my arms
and all the world is calm
the music playing on for only two
so close together and when I’m with you
so close to feeling alive

a life goes by
romantic dreams will stop
so I bid mine goodbye and never knew
So close was waiting,
Waiting here with you
And now forever I know
All that I wanted to hold you so close

So close to reaching that famous happy end
almost believing
this was not pretend
and you’re beside me
and look how far we’ve come
so far we are
so close

how could I face this faceless days
If I should lose you now
We’re so close to reaching that famous happy end
and almost believing this was not pretend
Let’s go on dreaming for we know we are
So close
So close and still so far

I miss you.
