Song Description

It doesn't have to be made in heaven.

Lyrics

Close Enough For Love
©2006 by Bill Burnett

We gaze into the heavens
To see those shooting stars
And when they show we give them oos and ahs
They go blazing through the heavens
And then they vanish--puff!
They aren't real stars but they get close enough

Close enough, close enoughm Close enough, close enough
Close enough, close enough for love
Close enough, close enough

Once a woman loved me
A we called our love true
Now she's left me for a love called "new"
I don't blame her I don't hate her
Or any of that stuff
I'm grateful that we once got close enough

And we did, we got
Close enough, close enough, Close enough, close enough
I do believe we got, Close enough, close enough
For love, Close enough, close enough

Every truth is only partly true
And no piano is quite in tune
And all our lives we settle for a view
Of just one side of the moon

So gather round this campfire
Watch each glowing spark
Rise and disappear into the dark
The air is chilly around this campfire
The ground is cold and rough
But you can stay warm if you cuddle close enough

Just find somebody and get
Close enough, close enough, Close enough, close enough
You can be happy if you just get close enough, close enough
For love, Close enough, close enough, close enough, close enough, close enough for love
