Music & Lyrics: Heather Alexander

By being close, we’ve grown too far apart,
No longer can I visualize
What lies within your heart-
To be as we were long ago,
We’ll need a brand new start-
For by being close, we’ve grown too far apart-

When every day was innocent,
The time went swift and fast-
We made a heartfelt promise,
That as friends we’d always last-
Afraid of both our inner truths,
We told the whitest lies,
And in those days, we’d lock our gaze
But now we drop our eyes-

Now as I walk through inner worlds,
My heart can feel the cold-
Our friendship faded in a fog,
And we grew tired and old-
Perchance it was when truths were lost,
Or held back secretly-
Those many years of silent tears
Had changed both you and me-

As we embrace the things we’ve learned
That we have both denied-
The tangled web that once we wove
Will now become untied-
The single strands of colours bright,
Will straighten out and then,
We’ll take the ones we know are ours,
And start to weave again-

Our tapestries of inner truth
Will spread out wide and long-
We’ll each weave for ourselves alone,
And therefore hold up strong-
We’ll gain the strength to live and love,
In true realities,
We’ll then begin to find within,
Our similarities-

For by being close, we’ve grown too far apart,
But still I find I’d like to see the wishes of your heart-
The trust will take some time to grow,
While fear and pain depart,
When grieving ends, we could be friends-
We’re not that far apart-
