Never Too Close Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I remember when best friends were jealous lovers
Lyin' warm asleep beneath the covers, dreaming of belonging to each other
And so we tried, never too close, never too near, dyin' in time
And so we cried, but that is alright, we meant no one no harm

I remember when best friends were not mistaken
Long before that freedom was forsaken
Learnin' about all the good things in the world worth believin'
And so we tried, never too close, never too near, dyin' in time
And so we cried, but that is alright, we meant no one no harm

I remember when jealous lovers would stick together
When the days were warm and the nights more tender
When the bonds of truth were not made to measure
And so we tried, never too close, never too near, dyin' in time
And so we cried, but that is alright, we meant no one no harm

Try, try as you will
Following dreams never fulfilled
And so we cried but that is alright
We meant no one no harm
