C   Caug  C6      Caug    |   C   Caug   |   C6   Caug   |
 So close, yet so far from paradise
C  Caug     C6     Caug       C
 I hold, you in my arms, and paradise
   Em             Am
Is mine, then you slip away
       F        Dm   G
Like a child at play
    C         Em  F     G               |   C   Caug   |   C6   Caug   |
And here am I: So close, yet so far from paradise

 When you, are close to me, it's paradise
C       Caug  C6     Caug  C
 We kiss,      oh my love, paradise
   Em                         Am
Is mine, then suddenly you're gone from me
                F       Dm   G
Like a floating star, I see
    C         Em  F     G                C          C7
And here am I: So close, yet so far from paradise


[Middle 8]
F                    E7
 I reach out for you, but each time I do
Am                 C7
 I always find you gone
Am                  F
 I know love is new, I'll take care of you
D7                  Dm7   G
In my arms is where you belong


[Verse]

 Just,   a step away, are we from paradise
C        Caug  C6      Caug    C
 Take my hand,   come away, to paradise

My love, I want you close to me

I need you desperately

  Here am I
