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're 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 want to be wise, I just want to stay young".

So close, yet so far away.
So close, yet so far away.
We believe in tomorrow, though we're stuck in today.
Baby we're 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's gonna tear us, tear us apart.

There's a restless look in your eye tonight,
Oh, are you lookin' for 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'll end up this way.
Getting' so close, so close,
So far away.

We're living in a dream world.
Yet we're livin' today girl.
Just you and me baby.
Gotta try, gotta try, gotta try, gotta try, gotta try, gotta try, gotta try.

So Close
  • The biggest Hall & Oates hit of the '90s, this song explores the vagaries of love: how we can be so close to the perfect union, but overcome with longing when it just isn't right.
  • Daryl Hall wrote the original version of this song with George Green, who was the co-writer on some of John Mellencamp's hits, including "Hurts So Good" and "Rain On The Scarecrow." Hall & Oates recorded an acoustic version of the song that ended up being used as the B-side of the single (listed as "So Close (Unplugged)"), but their record company thought the song had more hit potential with full instrumentation, and called in Danny Kortchmar to produce it, who brought along some high-profile help: Jon Bon Jovi.

    Kortchmar, who played guitar on some of the biggest albums of the '70s (Jackson Browne's Running On Empty, Carole King's Tapestry), had moved into production work and recently finished co-producing Jon's Blaze of Glory album when he got the call to work on "So Close."

    "We were just having a ball in the studio," Kortchmar said of the Blaze of Glory sessions. "So when I got the call to produce this single, I said, 'Jonny, what do you say, let's do this.' So he said, 'Sure, man. Great. I love Hall & Oates. Let's keep going.'"

    Kortchmar and Bon Jovi burnished the song into a hit and made a few changes to its structure. Always an astute businessman, Jon asked for composer credits on the song for him and Kortchmar, which were granted. The hit version of the song is thus credited to Hall/Green/Kortchmar/Bon Jovi.
