Daryl Hall & John Oates – So Close lyrics

They met on the dance floor in the old high school gym
He fell like a rock, she kinda liked him
And his heart beat like thunder as they moved cross the floor
When the music was over she slipped out of his arms
And out of the door, yes you did

Yeah a man loves a woman but he can't understand
Why she's sad when she stares at the ring on her hand
Or she sits in some club where the long shadows fall
Drop a coin in the jukebox not the phone on the wall

So close, yet so far away
So close, yet so far away
We believe in tomorrow maybe more than today
We're so close, so close, yet so far away

Some people think if you really believe
That's what you need to solve all the mysteries
Yeah I know someone who just heads for the sun
(She says)
"I don't wanna be wise, I just wanna stay young"

So close, yet so far away
So close, yet so far away
We believe in tomorrow, but we stuck in today
Baby we're so close, so close, so far away

There's a restless look in your eye tonight
There's a secret hurt in my heart
(So close)
And the dream that pulls us together girl
Is a dream that's gonna tear us, tear us apart

There's a restless look in your eye tonight
Are you looking for somewhere, end up here
(I see you looking in my eye)
We gotta fight, to keep it together girl
For the dreams that keeps us

So close, yet so far away
So close, yet so far away
The who would've thought girl that we end up this way
Given so close, so close, so far away

(So close, so far away)
We're livin' in a dream world
(So close, so far away)
But we live in today, girl
(So close, so far away)
Just you and me baby
(So close, so far away)

Baby side by, side by, side by
(So close, so far away)
Side by, side by, side by, side
(So close, so far away)
So close, so far away
So close
