Close


Across the miles
It's funny to me
How far you are but how
Near you seem to be
I could talk all night
Just to hear you breathe
I could spend my life
Just living this dream
You're all I'll ever need

You give me strength
You give me hope
You give me someone to love someone to hold
When I'm in your arms
I need you to know
I've never been
I've never been this close

With all the loves
I used to know
I kept my distance I never let go
But in your arms I know I'm safe
'Cause I've never been held
And I've never been kissed in this way
Ohhh You're all I'll ever need
You're all I'll ever need

You give me strength
You give me hope
You give me someone to love someone to hold
When I'm in your arms
I need you to know
I've never been
I've never been this close

Close enough to see it's true
Close enough to trust in you
Closer now than any words can say - yeah

And when, when I'm in your arms,
I need you to know I've never been
I've never been this close

You give me strength
You give me hope
You give me someone to love someone to hold
When I'm in your arms
I need you to know
I've never been
I've never been
Oh no I swear
I've never been
I've never been this close

    This song is means me everything I am from now because of the girl love me so much. I learned to changed my self my to my old life s because of her I learned to let go with my past. Thank you being always there for me, for loving me and being my inspiration all the time. And now I want you to know that you are the reason that I love again, loving you so much more than the love that I gave to my past. I know that I'm thankful having her now always remember that I love you so much "YMO" and always remember that I can wait no matter how long is it. I will always be here.

    Love conquers all.. Even miles and miles of distance seperates you physically, but emotionally, your loved one will always be as close. Shows how powerful love is.
