"So Close to My Heart" as written by and Dar Williams....
I never had a friend as close as you
So close to my heart
I dropped everything when you came through
So close to my heart
And I put my pens and my paint box aside
Oh so close to my heart
And the river that ran down the rock face dried
Oh so close to my heart
When you were close to my heart
It was an honor that you ran so free

So close to my heart
I thought I'd lost something forever, silly me
So close to my heart
But the place you hid in as bare as it seems
So close to my heart
It held my will in its infinite dreams
So close to my heart
When you were close to my heart

So now you're gone and now we'll both find our ways
So close to our hearts
By the forge that leaves a stamp on each day
So close to our hearts
And we'll long to make great things in our lives
So close to our hearts
And we'll wonder if what we make survives
Oh to the beat of the heart
It's the work of the heart
But you were close to my heart
