Artist/Band: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Lyrics for Song: Closer And Closer Apart
Lyrics for Album: The Calling [1996]



Tell me the truth

Don't ask me to lie

These are the things we say

You don't need proof and I'm not going to try

But I think we have lost our way



You don't own the sun and I can't raise the moon

So now as the darkness falls

Love is so hard won then over too soon

And another cruel ending calls



All I can do is turn now to you

Holding my hand to my heart

All that I know is I'm watching us grow

Closer and closer apart



Now all the kings horses and all the kings men

Wait for their clarion call

Pride hears its voices, and fear wins again

And there's nothing to break our fall



Over and over and over again

The world only spins one way

The past is a distant flicker by now

And a lesson for another day



Now, my sad little boat floats on ou to sea

And you're almost out of sight

I'll remember you

Please don't forget me

I whisper with all my might



All I can do is turn now to you

Holding my hand to my heart

All that I know is I'm watching us grow ...

All I can do is turn back to you

And wave with one hand on my heart

All that I know is it's so hard to go ...
