Hall & Oates - So Close Lyrics

They met on the dance floor in the old high school gym,
He fell like a rock, she kinda liked him.
And his heart beat like thunder, as they moved cross the floor,
When the music was over, she slipped out of his arms, and out the door.

Yeah a man loves a woman, but he can't understand,
Why she's sad when she stares, at the ring on her hand.
Or she sits in some club, where the long shadows fall.
Drops a coin in the jukebox, not the phone on the wall.

So close, yet so far away.
So close, yet so far away.
We believe in tomorrow, maybe more than today.
We抮e so close, so close, yet so far away.

Some people think, if you really believe,
That's what you need to solve all the mysteries.
Yea I know someone, who just heads for the sun,
She says "I don't wanna be wise, I just wanna stay young".

So close, yet so far away.
So close, yet so far away.
We believe in tomorrow, though we抮e stuck in today.
Baby we抮e so close, so close, yet so far away.

There's a restless look in your eye tonight.
There's a secret hurt in my heart.
And the dream that pulls us together girl,
Is a dream, that抯 gonna tear us, tear us apart.

There's a restless look in your eye tonight,
Oh, are you lookinfor some way out of here.
We gotta fight to keep it together girl,
For the dream, that keeps us,

So close, yet so far away.
So close, yet so far away.
Who would of thought girl that we抎 end up this way.
Gettingso close, so close,
So far away.

We抮e living in a dream world.
Yet we抮e livintoday girl.
Just you and me baby.
Gotta try, gotta try, gotta try, gotta try, gotta try, gotta try, gotta try.
