Jon Mclaughlin – So Close lyrics

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

    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.

    This song is about two lovers who love to indulge in each others company but have something that's keeping them from lvoing each other as deeply as they should. In other words the passion,& emotions,& lovee they feel for each other are so close to being put out in the open & for them to live happily ever after is being stopped by there is something in the way stopping them from letting each other know how they feel, even though they both know they were meant to be together in their hearts.

    This song means that just when you decided to give up hope on ever finding true love and ever finding a happily ever after, someone comes along and makes you feel so close to achieving that romantic dream. You hope that this time its real but yet fear is causing that person to be so far away from you. Your so close to reaching it all to reaching her/him but yet still so far. . I can relate. :/

    I think the song shows a sentiment about two people as potential lovers but can't be in a relationship yet. The reason could be they're stuck in a situation and must address their concerns first before they could finally express their love for each other. They could be so close to being in a romantic relationship, really longing for it in the first place, but can't because they knew that they'll be better together some time.

    This song is about two persons with a deep and strange connection that causes them to feel romantic things and care about each other. But they live in different worlds, they are separated by time and other people in the middle, and although their feelings are pure they can't make those feelings real. They only can live in a dream and in their last dance their realize how painful is to have something that you know it's impossible right from the start. And they say goodbye, but they will remain on each's other heart forever.
