So Close Yet so Far

(Byers)

 

Informação:

Joy Byers escreveu So Close Yet So Far (From Paradise) para o filme de Elvis de 1965, Harum Scarum. Elvis gravou a canção em Fevereiro (provavelmente no dia 24) de 1965 nos estúdios da RCA em Nashville.

 

Letra:


So close, yet so far from paradise

I hold you in my arms in paradise is mine

Then you slip away like a child at play

And here am I so close, yet so far from paradise

When you are close to me it's paradise
We kiss, oh, my love, paradise is mine

Then suddenly you're gone from me like a floating star I see

And here am I so close, yet so far from paradise

I reach out for you but each time I do

I always find you gone
I know love is new, I'll take care of you

In my arms is where you belong

Just a step away are we from paradise
Take my hand, come away to paradise
My love, I want you close to me, I need you desperately

Oh, here am I, waiting for you
Here am I, praying for you
Here am I, so close, yet so far from paradise
