Chynna Phillips — This Close lyrics

Time wasn't on our side
Our lives pulls us away
And I face the lonley night

Love put us to the test
We were touching less and less
In a world of emptiness

Oh is the answer here
Right here in your arms
Baby hold me near and
Keep our love from harm

Chorus:
This close
We've never been this close before
We almost walked away
This close
We've never been this close, I pray
That every step I take
Gets closer to you
That's when there's time and distance
Something gets through
Till we're this close
We've never been this close

I waited by the phone
The candles burned for you
But you never did come home

The night ain't your closest friend
In a cold and empty bed
With the words we left unsaid

Oh I know the answer's here
Right here in my arms
Baby never fear
My love will keep you warm

(chorus)

I held my breath for you
Nevertheless I knew inside
I'd be with you
Maybe it was pride
I've heard in time love grows
But I never dreamed we'd be
This close

(chorus)

I've never been
This close to you
