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 must die
So I bid mine goodbye and never knew
So close was waiting, waiting here with you
And now forever I know
All that I want is to hold you
So close

So close to reaching that famous happy end
Almost believing this one's not pretend
And now you're beside me and look how far we've come
So far, we are, so close

Oh how could I face the faceless days
If I should lose you now?
We're so close
To reaching that famous happy end
Almost believing this one's not pretend
Let's go on dreaming for we know we are
So close
So close
And still so far

    this song is like saying goodbye and letting go...
    it's just too close for them to be together but they have their
    relationship w/c they can't let go...
    So close to be happy and their story is just ending...

    We have our first love...
    but wat if we finally found our true love?
    wil you let go...
    or just go with your true love...

    but we should accept the consequence ahead...
    and we should take the risk...

    Love is complicated...

    I guess it kinda means that well... It talk about two people who love each other. A lot. And they're so close to having everything they've ever wanted together but also they have so many obstacles, so many problems... So, yeah, kinda like forbidden love. And this song just centers around these quiet moments they have next to each other. So close... And completely detached from everything around them... And over here where the writer says: "How should I face those faceless days, if I should lose you now?" I guess he means that the moment's ending and that soon they have to face reality and bid each other goodbye and face the fact that it's almost impossible for them to be together. So, in my opinion, it means that together, they feel like there so close to a happy ending but the moment they let go, they're far again.

    it is like wishing that it could be the two of you. ironically, time and other people does not permit.

    a very lovely song.. it has a very deep meaning of love between two people, like sitting next to each other and yet there's a cliff between them, trying to reach each other's hand..so near..yet so far.
