A Romantic First Dance Idea

This is another song that keeps me wonder. “Did the love birds made it or did they not?” Well, it is still one of the best song I ever encountered that would be great for the first dance. Some people may think that the song meant that they didn’t end up together, ’twas just as close as it could be. Well, for me, it meant differently. I think that they are on to something great. And, everyday is a step closer to a bliss of a life completely with someone you truly love. “So close together, and when I’m with you… So close to feeling alive.” – as the song mentioned sums up the song, I guess.

The last line saying “So close and yet so far” did confuse me at first. But, it occurred to me that when you are travelling or onto a goal with your one true love, anywhere and everywhere will never be too far.

So Close

Vocals: John Mclaughlin

You’re in my arms… And all the world is calm.
The music playing on for only two
So close together, and when I’m with you…
So close to feeling alive…

A life goes by… romantic dreams must die
So I bid mine goodbye and never knew
So close was waiting, waiting here was you
And now forever I know…
All that I want is to hold you so close…

So close to reaching that famous happy end
Almost believing this one’s not pretend
Now you’re beside me, and look how far we’ve come
So far, we are so close

Oh how could I face the faceless days
If I should lose you now?

We’re so close to reaching that famous happy end
Almost believing this one’s not pretend
Let’s go on dreaming though we know we are
So close, so close, and still so far

Check out our cover of this song played at Oasis Manila for the First Dance.

Entwined in each others arms
and a kiss of no tomorrow
Suddenly, each is indistinguishable.

Like vines yearning against an old tree.
Wide not for embrace, height not for sight…
The farthest, they will go.

Unknowing of next, they try.
And, in each inch that they climb the magnificence of old
they know they are always close…

No destination is far beyond reach
Whenever they entwine there’s no space and time
Then… getting there doesn’t really matter.

Here is the original version…
