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
But when the music was over she slipped out the door
Yeah a man loves a woman but he cant understand
Why shes sad when she stares at the ring on her hand
Then she sits in some club where the long shadows fall
Drops a coin in the jukebox not the phone on the wall

So close
Yet so far away
We believe in tomorrow and a better day
We lie down to sleep so close
Yet so far away

Theres a restless look in you eye tonight
Theres a secret hurt in my heart
And the dream that pulls us together girl
Is a dream that keeps us
So close
Yet so far away

Some people think if you really believe
Thats all you need to solve all the mysteries
Well I know someone who just heads for the sun
She says I dont wanna be wise, I just wanna stay young



Theres a restless look in your eye tonight
Theres a secret hurt in my heart
And the dream that pulls us together girl is a dream
Thats gonna tear us apart
