How can I tell you how I feel inside
Will the truth throw you away
Sometimes I look into your eyes and start to cry
Cause we come so close, then we back away
Are we so afraid to surrender all

We come so close to perfect love
What in the world are we so frightened of
Why can't we gamble on desire
Let the spark of love finally catch fire
So close to perfect love

You and I always walk a slender line
Of what is false and what is real
We're not as fragile
As we sometimes like to feel
We can spend our lives running all the time
Or we can make a stand together

We come so close to perfect love
What in the world are we so frightened of
Why can't we gamble on desire
Let the spark of love finally catch fire
So close to perfect love

You can take off those white gloves
I know what you're dreaming of
You and I are running out of alibi's

Let the spark of love finally catch fire
We come so close to perfect love
What in the world are we so frightened of
Why can't we gamble on desire
Let the spark of love finally catch fire
So close to perfect love

So close, baby
So close to perfect love
So close, we come so close
We come so close, baby
We come so close to perfect love
Oh, what are we frightened of
So close, we come so close
We come so close to perfect love
