Troy & Genie's First Songs Together

So Close (Yet so far away)

Author:Troy
Theme: Divorce

Lyrics: Troy, Genie , Kyle Matthews
Music: Troy; arr. Byron Hagan

VERSE 1: Here we are again
Lyin' face to face
I can feel you next to me
But you're a million miles away

I know you can see me tremble at your tender touch but
I can't bring myself to call this "making love"

And though tonight I bring you closer than the air I breathe
Still there's empty space between us naked eyes will never see

CHORUS: WE'RE SO CLOSE
YET SO FAR AWAY
GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS OF LOVE
LIKE ACTORS IN A PLAY
WE MEMORIZED OUR LINES BY HEART
REHEARSED THE ACT AND LEARNED THE ART
'TIL 'MAKING LOVE' BECAME AN OLD CLICHE
WE'RE SO CLOSE YET SO FAR AWAY

VERSE 2: Lately you're like someone I don't even know
Even when there's fire it still leaves me cold
'cause if we can't bridge this distance even when we touch
The ecstacy we're feeling doesn't mean that much

I hear your beating heart- feel you breathing as we kiss
But our souls are worlds apart;
I know there's more to love than this

CHORUS

BRIDGE: Maybe we're too close to see
What's clearer from above
We're caught in the act of love
