Barbra Streisand

Closer

Play

As close as the sea is
To the seashore
The tide still rises
Twice a day
That's just the ocean's way
Of getting closer
Closer

As close as today is
To tomorrow
At midnight
They can fin'lly touch
Cause every minute brings them
That much closer
Closer

So on this silent night
I call your name
And suddenly
All time and space
Between us disappear

I see your face
In firelight
I hold you close in memory
And even though
I know you're gone
I know you're here

As close as the glow
Is to the ember
You've always been a part of me
Now living in my heart
You're even closer
Closer

I see your face
In firelight
I hold you close in memory
And even though
I know you're gone
I know you're here

As sure as there's snowfall
In December
Your love lives on
In everything
Summer, Winter
Fall or Spring
Every thought of you
Will bring us closer
Closer
The distance
May be large or small
Someday I pray
That we may all be closer
Closer
