So Close To Good

She was beautifully lost
Scarred deep down inside
She was just what I needed
When I needed to hide

I gave her all that I had
She gave me what she could spare
When we were together
She wasn’t there.

Chorus
It was so close to good
It was so close to true
I would have done anything
To see us through

There were warm summer days
When it almost seemed right
There were whispers of grace
Between dark troubled nights

She’d never say where she was
When she didn’t come home
And I never asked
When we were alone

Chorus

Bridge

So how do you know
When to hold on
And when do you know
It’s time to let go

She had seen way too much
To ever give in
There was nothing I had
That she wanted again

As hard as it was
She got me to see
Her true love was her pain
It was just time to leave

It was so close to good
It was so close to true
I would have done anything
To see us through

It was so close to good
Like a gift from above
It was so close to good
It was so close to love

It was so close to good
It was so close to love
