Closer than ever

(Dichterbij dan ooit Ė BlÝf)

Rather losing something you love
Than to keep what you donít miss
Rather outside where it is cold
Than inside where nothing is 

Nothing here to stay for
Hereís only that what was
And that sticks with me forever
For ever on! 

Who can tell me how it goes
How bigís the gap between now and never
And how come Iíve come to notice now that youíre gone
Youíre closer than ever 

Rather asking for the long way
Than an answer that makes you hold on
Rather say what I often keep in
Than conceal that I have to go on 

I donít have to tell you
What I already said
With my mouth and my eyes
For ever on! 

Who can tell me how it goes
How bigís the gap between now and never
And how come Iíve come to notice now that youíre gone
Youíre closer than ever 

Rather laugh about whatís been
Than to fear your destiny
Rather love a big spirit
Than to hate what you cant see 

I donít have to explain
Its right here in front
And I make a final bow
For ever on! 

Who can tell me how it goes
How bigís the gap between now and never
And how come Iíve come to notice now that youíre gone
Youíre closer than ever
