"This Close" as written by Chynna Phillips and Desmond Child....
Time wasn't on our side
Our lives pull us away
And I face the lonely 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
