"So Close/So Alive" as written by and Andrew Meunier Steve Miller....
It looks like you need some company
Your face is wearing such misery
I'll stay right here with you, if you want me to
(I want you to)

And if our worlds collide
A smile I'll sure provide
I'll turn your fantasies into something real
Just let me get inside

To the top, and nothing's going to stop us
No roots, or chains are going to hold us
Today will be the day we reach the sky

So long, to things that dreams are made of
So close, that you can almost taste it
Today will be the day we reach the sky

I like the way you look tonight
Your dress has drawn me to your eyes
I know that it's a stretch, but would you let me stay?
(I'll let you stay)

You've got me in a trance
And if you take a chance
I'll make your memories into something more
Just open up your eyes

To the top, and nothing's going to stop us
No roots, or chains are going to hold us
Today will be the day we reach the sky

So long, to things that dreams are made of
So close, that you can almost taste it
Today will be the day we reach the sky

So long, to things that dreams are made of
So close, that you can almost taste it
Today will be the day we reach the sky

You know that I will be next to you
When morning comes, I'll still be true to you
(You say you'll never leave)
And I won't dear
(But how can I believe?)
Just trust me, please
(I can't, explain how much I need you)
Don't say a word, your body will speak for you
(You can be the reason I'm alive)
And you're already everything I've got
(Hold me close, keep me on my toes)

To the top, and nothing's going to stop us
No roots, or chains are going to hold us
Today will be the day we reach the sky

(Hold me close)
To the top, and nothing's going to stop us
(Keep me on my toes)
No roots, or chains are going to hold us
Today will be the day we reach the sky
(Today will be the day we reach the sky)

(Hold me close)
So long, to things that dreams are made of
(Keep me on my toes)
So close, that you can almost taste it
(Today will be the day we reach the sky!)

    General CommentThis doesn't sound at all like anything from If These Streets Could Talk to me. They've matured a lot and I think they did a good job with this one, especially since it's slower than anything on ITSCT. I especially like Evy's vocals =)
