Lyrics

I stood listening to those chapel bells
Trying to tell myself it’s just as well
Watched you walking down the aisle that day
Oh so close and yet so far away

It feels so good to sit and talk with you
All the while, sweetheart, it's torture too
Such sweet, simple words I'd love to say
Oh so close and yet so far away

Oh so close to you my darling
Oh so close I wanna cry
For my love as I sit looking in your eyes
Oh so close to you my darling
It's so hard for me to stay
Oh so close to you and yet so far away

You confide in me and me in you
That's what good old friends are 'sposed to do
I got one secret that I can't betray
Oh so close and yet so far away

Oh so close to you my darling
Oh so close I wanna cry
For my love as I sit looking in your eyes
Oh so close to you my darling
It's so hard for me to stay
Oh so close to you and yet so far away

Being near you, babe, it's work for me
Trying to hide this precious misery
It's a price I guess I'll always pay
Oh so close and yet so far away

Oh so close to you my darling
Oh so close I wanna cry
For my love as I sit looking in your eyes
Oh so close to you my darling
It's so hard for me to stay
Oh so close to you and yet so far away

Hey, now
Oh so close to you my darling
Oh so close I wanna cry
For my love as I sit looking in your eyes
Oh so close to you my darling
It's so hard for me to stay
Oh so close to you and yet so far away
