Mary Chapin Carpenter — Closer And Closer Apart lyrics

Tell me the truth
Don't ask me to lie
These are the things we say
You don't need proof and I'm not going to try
But I think we have lost our way

You don't own the sun and I can't raise the moon
So now as the darkness falls
Love is so hard won then over too soon
And another cruel ending calls

All I can do is turn now to you
Holding my hand to my heart
All that I know is I'm watching us grow
Closer and closer apart
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/mary-chapin-carpenter-closer-and-closer-apart-lyrics.html ]
Now all the kings horses and all the kings men
Wait for their clarion call
Pride hears its voices, and fear wins again
And there's nothing to break our fall

Over and over and over again
The world only spins one way
The past is a distant flicker by now
And a lesson for another day

Now, my sad little boat floats on ou to sea
And you're almost out of sight
I'll remember you
Please don't forget me
I whisper with all my might

All I can do is turn now to you
Holding my hand to my heart
All that I know is I'm watching us grow ...
All I can do is turn back to you
And wave with one hand on my heart
All that I know is it's so hard to go ...
