No One So Close

from by Josiah Letchworth

lyrics

If I had the hands, then I’d try to catch you; never know that I will. / I’ve been running circles since the time I met you, and you’re still out of reach. / Every man has tried to get his hands on you just to hold you for a while. / I should say that you can leave me if you want to; darling, I’ll let you be. / So I’ll be the last one to let you go. / Don’t make me the first one to let you know / No one has ever come so close. / If I had the hands, then I’d try to catch you. / There is nothing I can hold; / So if you want to leave, then I’ll have to let you; / But you’ll go with my heart. / Any man who ever said you
were a savior knew that you were out of reach. / Were you only trying to do them all a favor? / Then just be what you are.
