I never had a friend as close as you
So close to my heart
I dropped everything when you came through
So close to my heart

And I put my pens and my paint box aside
Oh, so close to my heart
And the river that ran down the rock face dried
Oh, so close to my heart

When you were close to my heart

It was an honor that you ran so free
So close to my heart
I thought I'd lost something forever, silly me
So close to my heart

But the place you hid in as bare as it seems
Oh, so close to my heart
It held my will and its infinite dreams
Oh, so close to my heart

When you were close to my heart

So now you're gone and now we'll both find our ways
So close to our hearts
By the forge that leaves a stamp on each day
So close to our hearts

And we'll long to make great things in our lives
Oh, so close to our hearts
And we'll wonder if what we make survives
Oh, to the beat of the heart

It's the work of the heart
But you were close to my heart
