So Close, Yet So Far by Mike McWade

You're laying in my arms beside the fire
But when I wake you are no longer there
Your abscense only adds to my desire
And makes the distance more than I can bare


I feel your lips as they kiss me goodnight
And you whisper "I love you" in my ear
The miles between us keep you from my sight
we'll ever be but a dream is my fear

I reach out to brush the hair from your face
And the love there in your eyes makes me smile
Together we can't be, here in this place
But it's nice to imagine for a while


Missing you is getting worse day by day
You're so close to me, yet so far away
