"Almost" as written by and Tracy L Chapman....
Almost got what I want
Almost found what I lost
Almost saved you and myself
Almost won but it doesn't count
And never does
Never does

One green light
One more ring of the telephone
One more step
One more second
And I almost
Almost

Almost got what I want
Almost found what I lost
Almost saved you and myself
Almost won but it doesn't count
And never does
Never does

One hello
Just one kiss before the tears come
One yes
One chance
And I almost
Almost almost almost

Almost got what I want
Almost found what I lost
Almost saved you and myself
Almost won but it doesn't count
And never does
Never does

One day one year 5,000 weeks
A life of good works and good deeds
Let me be let me be closer
Let me be
Let me be
Let me be

When I've almost got what I want
Almost found what I lost
Almost saved you and myself
Almost won but it doesn't count
And never does
Never does

One good guess
A question with an answer that I know
One idea
One grand notion
And I almost
Almost almost almost

Almost got what I want
Almost found what I lost
Almost saved you and myself
Almost won but it doesn't count
And never does
Never does
Never does
Never does

    General CommentI get choked up every time I sing with this song and I have to stop for a minute.
    It reminds me of a perfect friendship that almost fell apart and had been dashed on the rocks but then through careful reconstruction and delicate mending it was starting to come back together, just beginning to feel like it use too and then that friend passed away and I lost it all.
